Hello all, I am looking to stay a couple of nights in Marrakech, then maybe a night or two in the Atlas moutains and then on to Essaouira for some surfing. I have genuinely searched the forums and my questions are, mostly for confirmation:
1: what area would people recommend for an overnight stay or a night or two in the Atlas mountains but which is convenient transport wise from Marrakech? We would love to see the beautiful mountain views and perhaps go on some walks if possible. My understanding is we could travel by bus from Marrakech to Atlas area and back?
2: Travelling to Essaouira would require us to return to Marrakech and cannot be done from the Atlas mountains from what I gather, is this correct? From what I have read we would have to get a bus from Marrakech to Essaouira, to confirm is the travel time app 4 hours?
Many thanks for your help.
