Essaouira boasts miles of superb sandy beach with wooded hills standing tall on the skyline to the east. It dominates a vast bay with the beach stretching south for about two miles to an even older, ruined fortification dating back to Portuguese occupation. Here the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Oceans merge to create two strikingly different coastlines.
