Dar Lazuli riad is perfectly located just inside Essaouira's medina walls, a couple of minutes walk to the beach, cafes, restaurants & souks.
Essaouira has a temperate climate, so makes a great year round destination, especially for those seeking winter sun.
Listed as one of the world’s best beaches, Essaouira is well-known for watersports including surfing, kite surfing and windsurfing. You can also rent a quad bike & explore the sand dunes, or take a camel or horse trek along the coast.
For the less adventurous, the broad sandy beaches are perfect for long walks & the sea is great for swimming.
Wander the narrow streets & souks in the medina, watch the fishermen bringing in the daily catch at the port, pay a visit to the wood workshops, or simply find a café in the main square – Place Moulay Hassan, & watch the world go by.
The annual Gnaoua or Gnawa World Music Festival in June features a great line up of musicians and artists from all over the world.
Other Activities: Kitesurfing, quad biking, camel riding.
Golf: The Essaouira Mogador Golf Club has recently opened and is a 10 minute drive from Essaouira. It is a 36-hole course stretching over 580 hectares designed by the renowned Gary Player.
