Essaouira

Essaouira is a great place to be if you don’t mind sharing the beach with the odd camel or two! It is known as the windy city of Africa, and with its wide endless beach it offers you the space and freedom to learn, progress and to have fun in the water.

If there are 30 kites on the water it is a busy day! The vibrant old medina and harbor give Essaouira its soul and give you an insight into a charming way of life.

The best kiting is the left side of the bay so away from the old town. Here the beach is less crowded and the wind more consistent. The curved shape of the bay and cross-on winds make it safe, and kite schools offer safety boat assistance. Protected by the Mogador Islands and harbour, cross-shore winds from the right offer ideal conditions for everyone, from beginner through to expert.

During the winter months you can kite at the rivermouth where you have flat water. There are also flat water spots at high tide and closer to the medina. In the summer it is mostly choppy open water or small waves. You also have waves to the left of the spot and past the rock you will find the second beach where the wind is clean and the waves are perfect for people just getting into waveriding. Advanced wave riders head to Moulay Bouzarktoune and Sidi Kaoki, and Explora run weekly downwinders from Moulay to Essaouria or from Essaouira to Sidi Kaouki if the conditions are good.

Essaouira has managed to retain its rich culture and welcoming spirit whilst also expanding itself as a great water spots destination offering comfort and luxury in terms of riads and hotels.
There are some direct flight to Essaouira and regular flights to Marrakech (then it is a 2 hour transfer) from across Europe. The other option is Agadir which is a 3 hour transfer.
Essaouira is known as the windy city of Africa so the trade wind blow pretty much all year. From mid-March through to mid-October has the most consistent wind, with the peak through June,

July and August where you can get wind 90% of the time as the huge temperature difference between land and sea accelerates the summer north easterly trade wind in the afternoons.

During the winter months, from November until the end of December, there is wind around 55-60% of the time. In January and February it drops to around 50-55% of the time. Wind speed during the summer months is from 18-25knots but it can get up to 35 knots during some afternoons. Essaouira is sunny all year and the temperature during the summer is between 26-30 degrees, the autumn still feels like summer – around 22-25 degrees. During the winter months it can still be jeans and t-shirt weather and last year we wore shorts until January!
