Adventure in Morocco: Fly by Helicoper to Essaouira from the Royal Mansour
August 24, 2011By: Mary Winston Nicklin

Royal Mansour MarrakechLeave it to the Royal Mansour, the opulent Marrakech resort owned by the King of Morocco, to organize the ultimate adventure to the oceanfront city of Essaouira. Long considered one of the best anchorages of the Moroccan coast, Essaouira is an ancient port once settled by the Carthaginians, Romans, and then Portuguese. It's a marvelous mixmash of archeological treasures-- its medina is a UNESCO World Heritage listed site-- in a beautiful setting. The Royal Mansour Marrakech, home to a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno, will fly you by helicopter to Essaouira where you'll be driven to the town of Ounagha for a wine tasting at "Val d’Argan," a French-owned winery. To cap off a dazzling day, you'll be served an extravagant lobster dinner under a Bedouin tent on the beach at Sidi Kaouki.
