Location

If you are on holiday with your family, a group of friends, as a couple or solo, Essaouira is the perfect destination to satisfy everyone. There are a thousand ways to do discover this town.

Located on the windy Atlantic coast, about two hours southwest of Marrakesh, there is the small city of Essaouria. “Swerah,” as locals call it.

This blue seaside town combines some of the best of what Morocco has to offer — excellent beaches, great food and vibrant culture — with a chill atmosphere that isn’t as prominent in other parts of the country. With its long beach, calm harbor and friendly locals, Essaouria has developed into one of the more tranquil spots in Morocco.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

L'hôtel est parfait, à 3 minutes de l'école, face à la mer, couché de soleil quotidien depuis le toit terrasse, les chambres sont propres et spatieuses. Bon confort et staff très aimable.

How were the kitesurf lessons?

     

J'ai eu l'occasion de passer 3 jours à Kite Paradise pour une initiation au Kite. J'étais un peu réticente aux sessions de 3h (vs 2h proposées dans d'autres clubs) mais après expérience, je comprends comme c'est bien nécessaire pour accrocher et kiffer !
J'ai passé ces 3 jours avec Said qui a été de très bon conseil qui sait encourager et faire rigoler (quand tu commences à désespérer), mais surtout, qui est d'une patience trèèèès appréciable ;)
L'ambiance est très cool, le lieu chill et la team est super accueillante, sans chichi. Je recommande évidemment, et j'encourage surtout !

L'Hotel est idéalement placé, face à la plage, et à 5 minutes à pieds de la Médina et de l'école de Kite. Les chambres sont propres, spacieuses et confortables, nous profitons de la terrasse tous les jours en buvant un verre et en admirant le couché du soleil. Le restaurant est aussi très bon. Je recommande.

Taher nous a organisé un super trip pour 10 kiteurs et 10 planchistes pendant une semaine. Matos top, nav matin et après midi, staff au petit soin et toujours disponible sur l'eau et même le soir pour nous faire découvrir les plaisirs nocturnes de la Médina. Tout le monde qqsoit son niveau initial a bien progressé. Merci à toute l'équipe. Je recommande.
