Essaouira Mogador Airport is so insignificant that it is not listed on their website among Moroccan airports. When the aircraft comes near Safi it disappears from the screen - quite so scary .....
A bus service runs from the airport to Essaouira approximately every 2 hours during the day and taxis are available at arrivals.
