This full-day excursion takes us to Sidi Mbark, a small Berber village 35 km south of Essaouira. We walk along the amazing cliff line overlooking beautiful bays below. We visit the waterfall beside an old Marabout (house of a Saint or wise man). Discover nature at its best. Here, the convergence of a large sand dune, a small river, and an imposing rock splendidly frames a lovely bay.
The stream brings some water into this very dry region to irrigate local crops. The landscape offers a rich interplay of green, blue and yellow. As it sleeps on the rocks, the Marabout that gave its name to the village speaks of former times.
The hike now takes us southwards on winding paths through rolling hills. Along the way we encounter shepherds with goats and sheep. The trek provides panoramic views of the coastline and the Atlantic Ocean to the horizon. Walking above the bays we come upon stone houses where fishermen store their gear used to eak out a living from the sea.
On the return hike we stop at a bay for a refreshing swim (optional). Then, surrounded by beautiful scenery, we enjoy a vegetarian picnic at the waterfall of Sidi Mbark.
