Beautiful Blue Boats in Essaouira, Morocco

Before you plan a trip to Morocco

Be sure THIS place is on your list: Essaouira. Yes I know it seems like too many vowels in a row, but you gotta go anyway. It was one of the most beautiful areas of Morocco, and you never think of that country as having a vibrant port-city, do you? Well all the more reason to go… Great photos, great food, amazing weather… it’s just amazing!

Daily Photo – Beautiful Blue Boats in Essaouira, Morocco

This whole medieval town is awesome, and it is more than enough fun getting lost inside the little streets and rampart walls. But I found the most interesting part was the harbor. There were maybe three different sections (or more), but each one featured an amazing array of different blue boats. Talk about endless photo ops… it never ended!

The Fish Market

Right by this place below was a fish market. Fisherman had been out since the morning, and now their partners were out selling fish on the docks. There were the craziest looking fish! I mean, there were some normal looking fish, but there were a few I have never seen before. I’d like to think I can identify a fair number of fish, but whenever I visit foreign fish markets, I see the craziest-looking sea creatures. It’s just amazing — I would have no idea how to prepare them or cook them… in fact, they often look way too scary, and I just kind of avert my eyes.

What a beautiful and amazing little seaside town this is! Who knew that Morocco had such charming places on the ocean? Well, I'm sure Moroccans know… but I sure didn't. This is definitely a fishing town and everything is boat-centric. I spent countless hours on the shore and on the docks exploring all the mythical boats. Here are a few of them for you.
