Essaouira : Michelin's recommendations
A white and blue city lashed by the Atlantic Ocean’s waves and cooled off by its winds, Essaouira has always inspired artists, and they continue to thrive here. Travellers will enjoy exploring the medina and its lively souks protected by proud ramparts, lounging on the lovely beach nestled along the bay, and sampling freshly caught grilled fish. Essaouira is one spot west of Marrakech that you must see.
