Essaouira is a place where the climate
the impression of being a thousand miles north. The rainy season
looks like spring, with clear skies and sunshine along the week. It
rarely keeps raining non-stop longer than one hour or so, after
which the sky quickly clears up, opening the way for the warm
sunrays that heat the air creating an atmosphere closer to fantasy
than to reality. The reflection of light on the wet asphalt and the
pavement tiles in the streets added to the white colour of the walls
Medina fills you with joy and ecstasy.
Rainbows are a distinguishing feature of winter in Essaouira, a city
known for its mild climate. The average temperature is 22°c in
summer and 17°c in winter. This is due to Its position under the
influence of the cold Canaries sea current which
also causes winds especially in
spring and summer.
