ouarzazate to essaouira?


Just trying to play around with our itinerary...could anyone tell me the amount of time it would take to drive from the ouarzazate/ait beh haddou area directly to essaouira?

Also, by adding in Essaouira we would be limiting our time in Marrakech to 2.5 days instead of 3.5 days...is this worth it, or given the time, should we just maximize our time in Marrakech?

i think one day in Essaouira could be enough. Marrakech is a wonderful time to maximize your trip in. so where are you now and what have you seen are you hiring a rental car.how is the weather like there??

From Ouarzazate, you have to return to Marrakech to then go on towards Essaouira. This should take 6 and a half hours, possibly less whenever they finish the new highway between Marrakech and Ess.

Essaouira is certainly a charming place, without knowing the rest of your itinerary it's hard to say whether it would be worth it or not, but if you can manage it without it being too rushed I'd say go for it.
