Essauira Travel Guide
Julia Roberts is currently shooting the political drama Charlie Wilson's War in Morocco on Thursday. The film, based on a Texas congressman's dealings with Afghanistan during the war with the Soviets, sounds like it could leave us as confounded as Syriana did.
In any event, the movie is filming in Essauira, a small fishing harbor that has recently become a haven for windsurfers.
Surfing enthusiasts say the surf is better south of Essaouira where it is even windier for kitesurfers and windsurfers. A small town just north of Agadir called Taghazout is known for both its good breaks, high winds, and friendly local surf culture. Just in case Julia and the crew wants to stay active. Of course, you can also stroll into the the center of Essauira and put a monkey on your head. All depends what kind of traveler you are.
