MORE ABOUT ESSAOUIRA
When staying in this kitesurf house Essaouira, you’ll be staying in a small town with restaurants, shops, a cozy authentic market / night market, bars, a doctor’s post and hospitals.
The town of Essaouira is as far as we are concerned somewhat off the beaten track. Of course there are more and more tourists but turn off the ‘main street’ (independence street) and you walk between the locals along restaurants where you can still dine with delicious Harrirra soup with freshly baked bread for less than € 2, –
The Essaouira kitesurf house is approx. 15 minutes drive from the airport of Essaouira.
We will be happy to arrange an airport transfer for you from Essaouira airport (around €25). But transfers from Marrakech and Agadir are also possible (from about €80).
People are friendly and take their time for you.
Tip: always greet people first and ask them how they are doing, before you say what you want. That’s very much appreciated!
Please note all the prices mentioned are subject to change.

In Essaouira there is plenty to see and do besides surfing and kitesurfing! Therefore, you will find below a number of activities that can easily be undertaken from the Essaouira kitesurf house.
Discover the medina (walking) The medina is actually a small town centre in a town. Surrounded by walls that look like castle walls you can walk along the market along merchants with fresh fruit or typical Moroccan delicacies.
Discover the beach and the fish market (walking) Outside the walls of the medina is the beach and the port. The harbour is a very photogenic must-see. Buy a fresh juice for less than €0.50 and walk past authentic fishing boats and walk to the beach between camels, horses and (kite-) surfers.
Horseback riding Our host will be happy to show you the stables. These horses are well cared for and you will be assigned a horse that fits your level. Whether you can already ride or canter on the beach: everything is possible!
From the explora surf centre you can also book mountain bike tours. Great for the no-wind mornings.
Massage Zahira is the “woman of the house” and makes the rooms and breakfast. What she also does is give massages in the room! Highly recommended.
Sunbathing on the sun-drenched roof terrace The terrace is not only suitable for BBQs but also for relaxing, reading and sunbathing.
Sidi Kaouiki Visit this village (beach) about 20 minutes drive. Sand as far as you can see and virtually no people to be seen except a few locals on a donkey…
Shopping, Eating and Drinking
Go to the night market or the Sunday market. Our host on location will be happy to show you the best stalls. Or shop at Otman, Chic? (mega loft) bring a well-filled wallet for the latter. WindowShoppers also welcome!
Food and drink Breakfast is included in the stay.
For lunch and dinner we have some great tips for you!
Lunch on the beach at Ocean Vagabond. They have delicious salads and bake fresh pizzas outside in the stone oven.
Have a cold beer or a nice cocktail on the edge of the medina at the harbour at Tarros. Beautiful views of the setting sun and (traditional) live music and happy hour every night!
Dining is possible at Mega Loft. A concept store, rooftop bar and restaurant in one! Every corner of this special place is used and there is always a cozy place to find! Another nice place in the medina is Coast. You can drink delicious coffee or eat traditional tagine. The owner is just not always present: when the surf is good he closes his toko for a while.. Finally, we want to mention Triskala where they have a small day ticket and where eating is an experience in itself: all special tables and small corners. So this is highly recommended, especially for the vegetarians and vegans among us.
At Outbound we love our planet and I’m sure you do too. There are several eco-friendly shops and restaurants close by! The kitesurf house in Essaouira takes care of its surroundings and the planet. That’s why food will never be thrown away here. In addition, they only buy locally.
Also nice: they organize a beach-clean-ups (almost) every Sunday. They only employ locals at this kite and surf centre. And, these boys are trained internally as IKO or VWDS instructor. They get a fair salary and breakfast + lunch at the school.
