Essaouira: FOR windsurfers and kitesurfers
Essaouira is a small, ancient coastal city and is one of the windiest places in the country, making it especially popular among windsurfers and kitesurfers. Thanks to numerous surf shops right in town you are also always ideally equipped.
The island in front of the city stops the waves here on most days, so the water is generally flat or slightly choppy. The lack of waves makes the spot less popular among surfers, with most preferring Sidi Kaouki, eight kilometers to the south.
