I'm at final step in organizing my trip to Morocco (thanks again for all the infos you gave us inside other useful threads of this Sahara board).
I ask you the following question, since you know the Country very well: I and my girlfirend will arrive in Marrakech around noon of August 9, so we'll visit the town in the afternoon and overstay at night.
The following day, early morning, we will be bound to Essaouira, stay there 5-6 hours and return back to Marrakech late afternoon in order to be there before sunset.
Now your suggestion: is it worthy to spend that day in Essaouira or is it more convenient to use it completely to spend another day in Marrakech? (we'll stay only 10 full days in Morocco).
I ask you this because I would stay in Marrakech also that "full" day, but my girlfriend would like to go to Essaouira (that does not attract me so much, according to some reports I been reading all over the web).
Thanks for your suggestion! (of course, this question is "open" not only to Tim, but also to anybody else...)
