Sunset In Essaouira

Essaouira Morocco Sunset Medina

Essaouira Morocco Sunset MedinaEven though I fell completely in love with Fes while visiting Morocco back in 2009, I know I need to return to Essaouira some day. After several days in the rain far away from the sea, we found ourselves in the coastal town of Essaouira, also known as “Wind City of Africa”. Suddenly we could feel the sun shine on our faces and smell the sea (and the fishies!). Besides the laid-back and kind of alternative atmosphere, I can’t remember much more than what the few photos I have remind me; the amazing light and the breathtaking sunset. Oh! Fun fact to all the other Game of Thrones fanatics out there: some of the scenes from season 3 were filmed here!

  1. How pretty! I was almost going to here while recently in Marrakech, it looks/sounds so interesting. Although I wouldn’t say Marrakech is touristy, I like the idea that Essaouria is a bit off the beaten trail. :)

  2. Such beautiful photos! They make me want to visit the Moroccan coast so badly. I’ve only ever been to Marrakech (with short stops in Rabat and Tangier), but I’d love to experience a completely different part of the country! This town looks especially enticing :)

  3. For en flott solnedgang! Liker å ha muligheten til å sitte på en takterrasse et eller annet sted i en eller annen by og bare skue utover! Det blir nok ikke en tur innom Essaouira på oss denne gangen, men jeg skal absolutt tilbake til Marokko for sure, og da kan jeg tenke meg å dra dit, samt til Fes og Chefchaouen – og ikke minst ut i Saharaørkenen :D

    Kult med giveaway!

    1. Ja, Marokko har utrolig mange spennende steder. Kjenner jeg må tilbake dit ganske snart… Vil også ut i ørkenen! Tror virkelig du kommer til å få mersmak når du drar dit! ;)
