Great friendly Médina lots of stalls and little shops as well as all sorts of cafes and restaurants be prepared to haggle hard and if necessary walk away by the time you have counted to 10 they will come after you if you’re near the right price

Unfortunately the day we went it seemed most of the annual rainfall for the area decided to deposit itself'
I can imagine that when the sun is out it would be a beautiful place to spent lots of time.
We wandered the town and then into the market area where it was pleasant to wander and not to be hassled by stall / shop owners.
The wood carving and items for sale were not particularly expensive and of course haggling is a must.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink (coffee or mint tea etc)
Shame it was wet when we went but I would recommend a visit if you are in the area

A short walk from the Medina is the wonderful beach and interesting fishing port. Find Abdullah and he will give you the history of the place for a few Dirams.! (cant spell it)

Essaouira A place both our daughters had visited and said to be like St Ives in Cornwall, in a way yes plenty of surf , fishing boats, so fresh fish and pasties of sorts, the difference the sea gulls are friendly even swimming on the hotel pool, but not stealing your pasty or ice cream. If you like cats they abound, if you like the cafe life style there is something for all tastes and pockets . The people are friendly. Warm enough in March to sunbath in shelter of hotel pool area. The Medina has history a bit tatty in places but it is Morocco enough to do if you want to will come again
