Essaouira : kitesurf & surf spot

Essaouira is a 3 kms sandy beach bay. On the wild side, it is the starting point for horses, camels and quads riding. On the other side, this is the entrance of the old city, called Medina, and of the fishing harbour.

Spot’s characteristics : a side shore wind blowing throughout the year, and the islands of Mogador at 1km off the coast. Thes islands filter the swell and let beautiful waves pass. The spot is very safe without rip currents and rocks. It’s a sage place for kitesurfing and surfing.

Essaouira bay is wavy in winter, ideal for surfer lovers and to practice strapless tricks! The rest of the year, the water is calm and the waves are pretty small and soft.  Kitesurfing and surfing is accessible to all levels, from beginner to advanced.
