Today will be a short walking day above the Atlantic. We will pass through several Berber villages and hamlets to a beautiful landscape of towering dunes until our next camp near the small waterfall of Sidi Mbarek. The waterfall is ideal for a refreshing shower and the dunes are great for exploring.

On this final day of our trek we’ll enjoy an incredibly scenic walk from one deserted beach to the next with spectacular wide ocean views. Finally we’ll reach the small village of Sidi Kaouki, a fishing port and meeting place for wind-surfers. After saying farewell to our camel drivers, we’ll drive to Essaouira. Overnight stay in a riad/hotel.
