Beaches in EssaouiraEdit This
The Plage de Safi, is to the north, is good if the sea is calm. However, if the winds are blowing, the water can be dangerous. The beaches to the south are more popular and filled with soccer games. If you continue south, you will find the ruins of an old fort called the Bordj El Berod, which was the inspiration for Jimi Hendix’s song Castles in the Sand. Further south, there is a Berber town called Diabat, once a legendary hippie hangout. Nowadays, it has reverted back to a normal, Berber farming village where foreigners are no longer able to rent rooms because of a police crackdown.
