..some of my friends , when I mentioned Morocco, seemed surprised that I hadn't been to Essaouira.

I booked with Supratours coaches online. A regular service, comfortable and reasonably priced...we just had to get to Marrakech train station.
We decided to spend a few days in Essaouira and again I booked online. I choose a town house in the Medina Dar al Bahar.

Eating out was no problem...apart from there being too many places to choose from!
We ate at the Fishermens huts, you choose your fish from a display of the mornings catch...
|really fresh fish|
|grilled sardines and prawns.....sorry cats nothing left!|
The harbour is well worth a visit......

By chance we were in Essaouira in the only month when the winds from the sea are light, instead we had to contend with some sea fog...just like Ireland!
Here are a couple of other places we ate..Safran where we had goats cheese salad with argan oil...delicious and a lovely little Italian restaurant Dar Baba..both in the Medina.
This is only a glimpse to whet your appetite...we look forward to our next visit...soon I hope...so much left to explore!
