Review of Dar Al Bahar Essaouira, Morocco

Dar Al Bahar (The House by the Sea) is a riad built on the ramparts of Essaouira, by the “San Dion” area, facing the ocean and its winds.

The rooms at Dar Al Bahar are elegantly simple, with whitewashed walls, a contrasting touch of blue and yellow in the traditional bedspreads and curtains and wrought-iron furniture.

Artwok done by some of the best local artists adorn the walls and the views from the terrace overlooking the ocean are simply wild and amazing.

Dar Al Bahar is a top riad to stay in Essaouira, although a bit secluded and tucked away.
