Essaouira Beach, Essaouira, Marrakesh-Safi, Morocco
Wind-free days in Essaouira are rare, so beach lounging isn’t really an option; instead, the broad, sandy city beach serves as a local park, popular with joggers, strollers and footballers. Conditions for windsurfing and kite-boarding are near-perfect and you’ll nearly always see boarders hurtling along; some spots are good for surfing, too. Sunbathers and swimmers are best served by the larger hotels on the seafront boulevards, which have sheltered pools.
