Kite-surfing is surprisingly easy to pick up, and with an enormous beach and consistently powerful wind, Essaouira offers the perfect environment to learn this adventurous new sport.
We recommend a week to really get to grips with the sport, but a couple of days with correct instruction should see most beginners get at least a good grasp of the basics.
For surfers of a non-kiting persuasion, the break at Sidi Kaouki - just half an hour away - is one of the best on Africa's Atlantic Coast. Original Travel can arrange board hire, lessons and/or transfers.
