Essaouira, on the Atlantic Coast of Morocco, charmed me utterly and completely. In addition to a lovely beach, the ramparts, and the cool vibe of the city, Essaouira is also a working fishing port, and a busy one at that.

Late in the afternoon, the fishing boats return to port with their catch. Just past La Porte de la Marine (Marine Gate), fishermen line the walls with their catches, and the attendant seagulls go wild. Essaouira Morocco fishing port
