National Geographic Traveller Photography Magazine have teamed up with the Moroccan National Tourist Office to offer one lucky winner the chance to win a holiday to Morocco.
Think Morocco is just about the desert and Marrakech? You’ll think again when you visit hip Essaouira on the Atlantic coast.
Sometimes known as the Windy City, Essaouira is where the ancient kingdom combines with boutique coastal chic to form a fantastic holiday destination for anyone who wants year-round seaside sun
A combination of spectacular beaches and remarkably consistent tropical trade winds has transformed this port city into one of the world’s premier destinations for windsurfing, kiteboarding and other watersports. Expert surfers are drawn here from all over the world to tackle the swells at Sidi Kaouki, while Essaouira Bay is the ideal spot for beginners.
If you prefer to keep your feet dry, you’ll find plenty to discover among the maze of narrow streets behind the mighty fortress walls that have protected Essaouira from coastal invasion for centuries. The city’s medina is a hive of cafes, riads and shops selling pottery, paintings, spices, wooden handicrafts and metalware. Essaouira is a treat for all of the senses — from the sounds of traditional Gnawa music to the taste of freshly caught sardines griddled within metres of the sea, and the feel of the sun’s warmth on your back (the temperature rarely drops below 20C, even in winter).
