Essaouira Kite Paradise & Riad Souiri
Reviews (2)
5 out of 5

Ideally located in the heart of the Medina, 300 m from the main entrance, the Riad Souiri offers a typical stay in Essaouira.

You only have to walk 10 minutes along the beach to reach the Kite School, and 5 minutes to reach the fishing harbour and the beach.

Experience all the charm of an authentic Riad with an indoor patio, roof top overlooking the Medina, and enjoy the friendliness of the staff.

This recently renovated Riad offers cosy rooms and a genuine Moroccan experience!

We offer Yoga Classes twice a week, and extra lessons can be booked on the spot. The lessons take place in the Orange Garden of the Kite School.

Location

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

This blue seaside town combines some of the best Morocco has to offer — excellent beaches, great food and vibrant culture — with a chilled atmosphere that isn’t as prominent in other parts of the country.

With its long beach, calm harbour and friendly locals, Essaouria has developed into one of the more tranquil spots in Morocco.

Instructors

Taher

Essaouira is called the Windy City, here we kite year round with a side shore wind. The islands of Mogador filter the swell and let beautiful waves pass. The site is very safe without rip currents and rocks. Essaouira bay is wavy in winter, ideal for surfer lovers. The rest of the year, the water is calm and the waves are pretty small and soft. Kitesurfing is accessible to all levels!

Main Kitesurf Beach: Tagharte Beach
