Exploring the Atlantic coast on foot (with optional lifts on camels): sweeping sandy bays and rocky headlands, fishermen and farmers, tree-climbing goats and camels grazing with their young. If you love a salty tang in the air and walking with the sounds of the ocean this is the trek for you!

This is an 8 day Itinerary offering:-

  • A 5 day trek – easy/moderate, with high quality wild camping, including camel support, following the beautiful coastline south of Essaouira, with long sandy beaches, rocky inlets, small scale rural agriculture, marabout shrines, and abundant wild flowers
  • Plenty of time to explore and enjoy Essaouira with its excellent climate, beaches, lively fishing port and to hone your bargaining skills in the relatively quiet souks
  • An opportunity to visit the bustling city of Marrakech with its labyrinth of souks, the vibrant Jemaa el-Fna Square, the Ben Youssef Medersa and the tranquil Majorelle Gardens which house the magnificent Islamic art collection of Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent.

Thank you very much for the caring, guiding hands you gave to our walking and camping on the trek. You and Mohamed did wonders with bringing us all together as a group and making the trek so very enjoyable, given some of us not being young and agile. S.G. Morocco Atlantic Coast Trek 2015. What a great holiday - it was a privilege to share it with you. C.B. Morocco Atlantic Coast trek 2013.
