Hello,
Essaouira offers reliable,cheap petit(more NEW taxis now) and grand taxis,plus regular buses to rural areas and beaches e.g Sidi Kaouki.Supratours link to Marrakech,and a wealth of buses service Morocco.The new Essaouira-Marrakech road journey takes 2.5 hours,using the motorway is less. Car hire is from 300dh per day and my favourite- scooter hire 600dh for 3 days.Horse and carts are even cheaper,and add a new dimension to public transportation.We have just launched the el Ghazoua horse and cart project,creating jobs and local transport in rural areas.However I must mention that lifts are often offered from the friendly locals and european residents.Thank you!

Thank you for your contribution, aglou! :)
