Essaouira was just like fresh air after Marrakech. Marrakech is a large city with a lot of people and where crowds are the norm. Essaouira is a relaxed fishermen town where it is quite easy to relax. It has become pretty touristic recently and that makes crowds are still present here again... but it is just ok, the town is just beautiful and cozy! A nice bastion in the Atlantic coast!
First big difference you can observe in all the coming pictures: the colours or Essaouira are "white and blue", whereas in Marrakech everything was red. That is also kind of healing after the previous days' stress.
The sea was also a good point there... it was cooler than Marrakech (even a bit too chilly at night) and the blue of the sea matched nicely with the overall of the city. Food was also great!! ;-) nice fresh fish and seafood!
The most beautiful view of the city is this one: the view of the medina from the pier at sunset... notable!
That day, the sunset was just great!
