Basking in Radiant Light: Warm and Sunny Days on Morocco’s Atlantic Coast

This year I went on a Morocco Winter Holiday in Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast of Morocco where the quality of the light is stunning and every day was a warm sunny day. Such a treat, as I now look out at the wind and the rain and the light starts to go already at 3pm in the UK.

Oceanfront Dining Delights: Ponchos, Stars, and Exquisite Terrace Dinners

The first night, we had dinner on a high terrace over-looking the ocean where they give you ponchos to keep you warm as you eat and drink under the stars.

Adventurous Thrills: Quad Biking, Jimmy Hendrix’s Ruins, and Scenic Beach Walks

The next day, we spent an hour Quad biking on the dunes, through the trees and passing the old ruin of a house where apparently Jimmy Hendrix once stayed! After that, lunch at a surf cafe with fresh fish and a long walk along the beach back to the Medina.

Enchanting Medina Exploration: A Magical and Manageable World in Essaouira

The medina is such a small and magical world, much more manageable than Marrakech and if you are staying in an apartment, the place to buy your food in the fresh markets to cook back in your kitchen. Lovely fresh fruit and vegetables and the smell of frying fish if you prefer to stop at a nearby street cafe.
