Full description

Explore the coastal town of Essaouira, visit the colorful port and decorative medina, spot goats clambering up argan trees, and stroll along the sandy beach and rock pools on a scenic day trip.

Be picked up from your hotel in Agadir bright and early. Begin your trip along the picturesque R207 coastal route. Make a stop to see the argan trees where small goats climb up the lower branches and feed. Spot sometimes over 20 goats sitting up in one tree. Snap some photos of this fascinating sight.

Arrive in the port where you’ll see the vast expanse of the North Atlantic Ocean. Head into the vibrant old town (medina), a stunning world heritage site. View the majestic, old brass cannons that line the walls, and ramparts to protect the seafront from ancient invasions. Stop off at a women’s cooperative where argan oil is produced. Learn how oil is extracted from the kernels of argan trees. See how it is used in cuisine as an accompaniment to Moroccan bread and in beauty products for the skin and hair. Finally, enjoy the spectacular sunset as you return to Agadir.
