About Explore Essaouira

About Explore Essaouira

Hello there, and thank you for popping by! Launched in February 2022, Explore Essaouira is a comprehensive travel blog dedicated to the beautiful port town of Essaouira in Morocco. It has quickly become the go-to travel guide for English-speaking visitors to Essaouira, receiving over 30k monthly page views.

Run by British-born mum-of-two, Jenny Lynn, this is your go-to guide to get the most out of your visit to Essaouira with suggested activities, a self-guided walking tour, accommodation, eateries and itineraries.

Jenny first visited Essaouira when her boys were just 1 and 3 years old and instantly fell in love with the town, to then return time and time again.

Jenny Lynn, editor of Explore Essaouira

‘Morocco is the accessible Africa. With just a short flight from Europe you are immersed into one of the most vibrant cultures on our planet, and Essaouria with its laid back vibe on the windswept Atlantic coast is easily my favourite Moroccan town.’

Editor of Explore Essaouira

Our aim is to help inspire you and provide you with all the practical information you need to visit Essaouira. From what to expect from a surf lesson, to where to find the camels, to where to safely park your camper, we’ve got you covered!

Jenny has been a full time travel blogger since 2016. She is also the founder of TraveLynn Family (an adventure family travel blog), Peak District Kids (the go-to resource for families adventuring in the UK’s oldest national park), and On Penang (the online travel guide for Penang, Malaysia).

If you have found this website useful for planning your Essaouira adventures, you can show your support by buying Jenny a coffee. Thanks so much!

Explore Essaouira ebook

Updated for 2024, the Explore Essaouira ebook is the only travel guide you need for exploring Essaouira. It is jam packed with inspiration on what to do, where to eat, where to stay, and also includes a step-by-step self-guided walking tour (with photos). 

This is a PDF download for use offline and on the go (and ad-free!). Save it to read on the plane to Morocco, download to your phone to follow the self-guided walking tour around the medina, or print it off at home before you leave on your adventures and highlight all the bits you want to remember for your visit.
