Very clean with good toilet facilities and several good restaurants . Very reasonably priced horse and camel rides 50 durams(£4) each for 45 min ride.

This beach is very pleasant in the summer season. The sea was beautiful and the sun is out all summer.

Very windy at times so you might get sand blown in your eyes constantly but it's a nice place to cool down as the wind is cool. It seems to attract kids after school playing football too so just be aware you may need to...More

Always windy here. Keeps the temperature cool. The Atlantic Ocean is cold, too cold for swimming even though some people do. Sand nice to walk on. White and fine. Too much rubbish on the beach. The beach is large and many water sports plus horse...More

Really nice beach with beautiful sunset. Beautiful view from there! We also slept at the edge of the medina, looking over the sea and it's beach.

If you have just been in the Medina, I recommend that you put your swimsuit on and get into the lovely, cool, relaxing sea. Be warned though, I don't think there is a lifeguard in many places and the waves tend to be quite strong.

I will start by saying that the accommodation we booked got us off on the wrong foot in Essaouira. Had we not stayed at Baousala perhaps we would have had a different opinion of this place. Riad Baousala is a $10 taxi ride 15 minutes...More

Lovely beach full of locals and friendly people, safe for night walking on the beach, good restaurants with sea view around as well.

Friendly and beautiful place. We took surfing lessons for 2 days at BKS. Recommending surfing for everyone (also kids). Good family beach.

Response from Koshkha | Reviewed this property |
Yes, you can. Some people just lay out a towel whilst there are also a few sunbeds - not sure if totally 'public' or connected to bars. A lot of people use the beds at Beach & Friends - buy a drink or two and they're happy... More
from where to start trip to desert would be the easiest way avoiding unnecessary long driving with the tour guides?

Response from Debbie G | Reviewed this property |
Hi, I would recommend Ranch de Diabat. They are based about a mile from the beach and will come and pick you up. I know one of their guides does do trips into the desert, some of them several days long - I can't answer... More
