2h Horse Ride
The two hours of horseback riding in Essaouira, at the Ranch de Diabat, are an excellent combination of time / cost to live an intense equestrian experience; you can enter the luxuriant nature in a short time at a price accessible to all.

Leaving the Ranch de Diabat, you will leave towards the mimosa and eucalyptus forest, through the dunes, and you will arrive at the beautiful wild beach where you can gallop, breathe the iodine of the Atlantic Ocean and approach a small fishing village.

On the way back you will admire the Portuguese Castle located on the beach, which once served as a lookout for pirate ships arriving from the coast, and now in ruins and at the mercy of the elements, but with an ancestral charm.

You can admire the island of Mogador up close and observe the ancient prison and the mosque still intact, but which unfortunately cannot be visited as the island is home to a rare species of falcon, where it reproduces and is therefore a protected nature reserve .

You will continue along the Kassob river, on whose waters you will find seasonal migratory birds of rare beauty and finally you will pass on the remains of the Sultan Moulay Abdallah Palace, included in the Unesco heritage.

Finally, you will return to the Ranch de Diabat, where you can rest on the terrace, access the toilets and make yourself comfortable.

The staff will take you back to Essaouira via the free shuttle, or you can leave independently if you have arrived with your own vehicle.

The walks are done every day of the week by appointment and subject to the availability of teachers and horses.
