How to get to Safi, Morocco

  • Safi is a city on Morocco's western coast, it's not as famous as compared to her neighboring city Essaouria, most tourists usually make a stopover at Safi while on their way to Essaouira but I realized its a great city once you get to get around:

Top attractions in Safi:

  1. Pottery
  2. Great surfing waves

The cheapest way to get to safi from Marrakech

  • After landing at Marrakech's Merana airport, I took a petit taxi for 50 Dirhams to Bab Doukala ( bus and taxi station).
  • At Bab Doukala you can get a shared taxi to Safi for about 90 Dirhams ($7).
  • Disadvantage of taking a shared taxi: you have to wait for other 5 people to fill up the taxi, which can take up to 30 minutes.
  • Trip duration: 2 hours.

Second cheapest transport means to Safi

  • Alternatively you can take the train to Safi but you have to switch trains at Benguerir.
  • Train trip duration: 3 hours
  • Cost: 70 Dirhams
