Riad Inna, like the night before.
This day is about to be packed with amazing activities, so get ready!
The ramparts of Essaouira are remains of a fortress, like many Moroccan attractions. Once entering (it costs 10 dh), you can see some of the best views of Essaouira.
The Medina of Essaouira is actually a working fishing port that is also UNESCO Heritage Site. Surrounded by white walls, the medina is filled with souks, has a view of the ocean, and is supposedly home to many friendly people.
The Sidi Mohammed ben Abdallah Museum is full of at-taarikh. For 10 dh, you can see and learn about traditional Moroccan artifacts, including tapestries, jewelry, and weapons.

Club Mistral surf lessons--what could be better than learning how to surf on the Moroccan coast? I believe they are taught in French, so brush up on your high-school vocabulary. For group lessons, two hours costs 385 dh/person, and six hours costs 1045 dh/person. While I'm all about being as frugal as possible, I'm more than happy to shell out $50 for surf lessons in Morocco!
