The fishing port, located southwest of the medina just off the Skala de la Ville, is one of the attractions of the city of Essaouira. There are plenty of old and small boats with multicolored nets. The fish market, easily located by its strong smell is best visited between 3pm and 5pm every day except Sunday, when the fish auction takes place. Entry costs 10Dh. A colorful place (predominantly blue in boats, since it is assumed that is the best camouflage for sardines), and picturesque images many cheeky seagulls come and approach the market and fishermen to steal some food.
