Essaouira

Formerly known as Mogador, Essaouira has preserved the splendor, traditions and cultural wealth of Morocco. The UCPA Centre is located in the heart of this charming city, with blue boats and smells of the spices from the souks surrounding it. The consistent wind has attracted wind sport lovers for over 30 years to this incredible part of the world.

Activities

Famous for it's kitesurfing and surfing, the ​centre in Essaouira specialises in these sports. Participants are split into groups based on ability and all are welcome, from complete beginners to experts. But it's not all about those sports! The ​area has an amazing array of landscapes, and a culture certainly worth exploring. 

Local Town

​Essaouira is an historic town located on the ​west coast of Morocco, exposed to the powerful Atlantic. Originally a completely fortified town, many parts are still contained within the walls. The town offers a more laid-back approach to life, especially when compared to the frenetic Marrakesh. A perfect destination for combining sport, culture, and relaxation.

UCPA Centre

Instead of having a purpose built UCPA centre, in ​Essaouira UCPA use Hotel Miramar. The hotel is ​situated on the beach, in the centre of the town. Rooms are 2-3 beds shared between guests (twin and double rooms are available for a supplement).

Testimonials

  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.

    Oliver P
  • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level. 
    Amelia S
  • One click and you’ve booked everything. No searching around for lessons, ski-hire etc. And the best thing is you can keep adding people to your group.
    Anna R
  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.
