Weather & Seasons
Spring (March to May) is arguably the best time to visit as these months are pleasantly warm and sunny, and the landscape is lush and green. Avoid August when Essaouira gets invaded by large numbers of visitors from home and abroad. Autumn (mid Sep-mid Nov) is also lovely, but the countryside tends to look a bit parched. Summer is pretty hot (approx 35°C) but tempered by sea breezes, and winter can be chilly at night.
Direct flights from London Luton to Essaouira with easyjet twice a week (Saturdays and Tuesdays), followed by a 15 minute transfer. Alternatively, there are numerous daily flights to Marrakech, followed by a 2.5 hour transfer.
