Morocco is one of our favourite countries and we are thinking of a long
weekend in Essaouira in January to celebrate a birthday. Accommodation is
no problem but we would be glad of advice on the best way to get there,
Research so far suggests London to Marrakesh, Casablanca or Agadir, but
how do we do the final leg?

Essaouira has a fantastic beach, fascinating hybrid architecture and a laidback vibe, with little hustling. It's also north Africa's surfing capital. There're cheap flights to Marrakesh and Agadir, but both are up to three hours by bus.
The Morocco Tourist Board has more information, Best Of Morocco offers four nights in Essaouira including flights and accommodation. Royal Air Maroc flies there but you must stay overnight in Casablanca both ways.
Free nights, upgrades, hammam & massage and honeymoon special offers.
