A Kitesurfing Holiday in Morocco’s Busiest Port

The trade winds which once established Essaouira as Morocco’s busiest sea port have now secured it as Morocco’s premier kite surfing holiday destination, and its unique setting is fast proving popular within the watersport community.
This is what it makes it a great destination for a Kitesurfing Holiday in Morocco.


The expansive stretches of beach is a perfect arch offering both space and safety for budding kitesurfers,  as the wind direction is predominately side on. For more experienced kitesurfers Essaouira is the perfect mix of smooth wave riding to the left of the bay as well as flat spots by the river mouth and closer to the town for one to progress manouvers
