Alongside the Atlantic Ocean … and Hammam Experience in Essaouira - 8 Days

Alongside the Atlantic Ocean … and Hammam Experience in Essaouira
1050

The Atlantic Coast is often the poor relative of Morocco because we prefer the Atlas or the desert … But it is full of treasures and it is a magical place to shake off the worries of the routine. A beautiful destination to do all year with family. It is in the small village of Sidi Kaouki that we invite you to set down your suitcases in the comfortable rooms of a small cottage facing the ocean and the crashing waves. We have put together a programme between discovery and relaxation for children and parents to find utter bliss.

- Hostel facing the ocean
- Discover the life of the Atlantic coast Berber people
- Visit Essaouira, the white city
- At the end of each of the 5 afternoons or evenings, you will enjoy hammam sessions and a massage in one of Essaouira's oldest baths.
- Possibility of 2 nights in a charming camp in the Agafay desert near Marrakesh

In the morning, we'll head west to the ocean ...
After a few hours drive through the desert plains and valleys dotted with argan trees, the emblematic tree of this region, we'll reach the small village of Sidi Kaouki. This small fishing village has become a Mecca for kitesurfers and windsurfers alike.
We'll settle in the small but comfortable single rooms of the hostel facing the sea. Free time in the afternoon on the beach and dinner at the hostel.

Day 3: WATERFALLS OF SIDI KAOUKI
This day is dedicated to a walk along the sea. We'll head off to the south along the large beach of Sidi Kaouki. At the end of the beach, we'll go up on the cliffs that dominate the ocean before finding a new wild beach where the cormorants dry their wings.
Around noon, we'll arrive at the waterfalls of Sidi M'Barek where we'll sit down for our picnic.
Then return to the hostel for dinner and overnight.

Day 4: TITRITE COOPERATIVE OF ARGAN OIL
It would be a shame to come to this region and not take the time to discover the secrets of argan oil. This is the programme of our day.
After a 2 hour walk through the argan forest, we'll arrive at a small women's cooperative in the heart of a village far from the road.
These women will explain to us what the argan tree is, an endemic variety of this region, and how they transform their nuts into oil.
The oil is used for cooking or as a beauty product. We'll share a lunch at the cooperative before returning home. Night at the hostel.

Day 5: CAPE SIM
Today, we'll head off to explore the north of Sidi Kaouki. We'll start walking on the beaches and under the eucalyptus and we'll follow the coast to Cape Sim where we can admire the view to the north and south on the beaches and wild cliffs.
Picnic in front of the ocean. To return to the hostel, we'll stay at the top of the mountain through the villages of Cape Sim and Ouassane.
It'll be the last night to breathe in the sea air ...

Days 6: SIDI KAOUKI / ESSAOUIRA / MARRAKESH
Before heading back to Marrakesh, we'll take the time to discover Essaouira, a coastal city with its port and souks.
