I loved Essaouira beach with the marble sidewalk areas and wide area to walk without cars. The sea looked stunning with plenty people going for a swim. A nice breeze to make a long walk more comfortable.

Walk just half an hour and you leave the tourism behind and just walk with the sound of the ocean and the wind in your hair .... Sand dunes to your left and a camel or two ... Beautiful x
