About This Center
Straddling a ridgeline between two tiny fishing and farming villages, the Serai stands like an ancient sentinel over the patchwork of terraced fields and drystone walls dropping gently towards the beach 800m away. With the forested hillside behind, the Atlantic in front and long clear views up and down the coast, the location is breathtakingly magical.
Wonderful Essaouira close enough to be just visible on the southern horizon, farmers’ markets like stepping back in time, and a rugged coastline of huge empty beaches, caves and tidal pools; this is a place of sparkling eyes and healthy appetites. As an integral part of a rural Moroccan community, not hidden behind high walls and closed gates, the Serai offers a very unusual experience to ecologically and culturally-minded visitors: a perfect base for really getting to know this colourful part of Morocco.
