How Does Tafedna look?

Tafedna long beach

The beach of Tafedna is 2 miles long.

A one-hour drive from Essaouira towards Tafedna, the Atlantic Ocean appears at the end of the road. Below, on the hillside, lies the fishing village of Tafedna.

Nature here is still unspoiled, and the view is impressive. 

In front of the village, blue boats line the beach. A long strip of sand runs the length of the bay. Dunes border the ocean. And a little further, a river that flows into the sea.
