Day 2 : MARRAKESH / DIABAT / MAHLOU – 3 hours on the road and 3 hours of walking

After breakfast, we'll head east towards the Atlantic coast. After 3 hours on the road, we'll begin our walk along the beaches of this coast which are often stirred up by the winds. People residing here is becoming rarer and rarer and so we'll only bump into some fishers and cormorants.
Next, on to Cape Sim which will put us in the direction of the sea and where our bivouac awaits us. We'll take in the sunset and spend the night in the tent.

After a breakfast enjoyed facing the sea, we'll head off in a southerly direction. We'll arrive in the village of Ouassem and we'll take in the views plunging towards the south and Sidi Kaouki, a site which is particularly admired by windsurfers. We'll head through the village via the large beach until we get to the cliffs. Once we reach the top, we'll admire the ocean view set off again on the long beach loved by cormorants and other marine birds.
We'll find our bivouac at the end of this beach, just after a small climb on the dunes which is just atop the waterfall of Sidi M'barek. We'll spend the night in the bivouac on the dunes overlooking the ocean.

Day 4 : SIDI M’BAREK WATERFALLS / ESSAOUIRA / MARRAKESH – 1 hour walking and 3 hours on the road
We'll undertake our last short walk towards the south along the cliffs and facing the sea.
Then, we'll branch off towards the mainland through the argan forests, typical trees found in this region, before retaking the path where our vehicle awaits us. We'll then head back to Essaouira. You'll have free time to visit and have something to eat there. After this, we'll return to Marrakesh. Free time for dinner and night at the hotel.
