Essaouira

After the trekking we had three days of relaxation, swimming and ice cream eating on the Atlantic Coast in the ancient town of Essaouira (goes back to the Phonecians!) before returning for a day to Marrakesh and flying home. Essaouria used to be a hippy hang out and prides itself of having been visited by Jimmy Hendrix himself.
It now hosts a huge World Music festival - Gnawa - every June and it is full of music and arty types all year round.
