"Safi" Safi by earthflyer
Safi Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 72 photos
Safi is quite a pleasant town with a relaxed atmosphere but just outside the town you can see the industrial side of Safi with it's giant phosphate plant in view of the seafront.
Safi is very famous in Morocco for it's pottery, which many of the ceramics you see all over country comes from here. Within the fortified walls of the medina, much of the pottery works cover a quarter of the city and is a good place to buy some pottery to take back home. Beware that there are touts who will argue amongst themselfs to get your business. I had one man in his 50's who wanted to sell me something and I was quite happy to do business with him but a young man in his late 30's was trying to butt in. The older man took me up to see some of the kilns they work in and when we came back down we finished our buisness and shaked hands and went away happy but the older man was getting harassed by this young man. An hour or so late i came back through the medina and could see these two in the distance still arguing very hard with one another.
From the Place de Independence you can go left and get some good views of the coastline with the big waves from the Atlantic crashing onto the rocky waterfront. If you go right you will end up in the busy harbour but you can't take any photos there because of immigration. You only need half a day to see Safi but it is well worth a visit.
