Experience this bustling city on the south coast of Morocco. Agadir is perhaps best known for its silky-soft sandy beach (there’s a whopping 10km of it to enjoy so you’re bound to find a spot!) and year-round sunshine. Most of the original city was destroyed in a huge earthquake in 1960, and what you see today is a modern resort that was built in its place, complete with trendy marina restaurants. Beyond the beach you’ll still get a sense of the rich history on Agadir holidays; you’ll find the Kasbah Mosque and traditional Berber villages within easy reach. And don’t forget to pick up a souvenir at the bustling souk.
Things to do
For many visitors, holidays to Agadir are first and foremost about long, lazy days on the beach. And where better to soak up the North African sunshine than on a 10-km stretch of almond-coloured sands? It’s one of the best beaches in Morocco. When you’re ready to refuel, you can grab a bite to eat at a local stall; the freshly-barbecued fish is a must try. If you’re looking for a livelier spot, do as the locals do and head to the Souk El-Had for a spot of shopping. Fragrant spices fill the air as you wander past mountains of plump dates. In the evenings, you can dine in one of the stylish restaurants overlooking the modern marina. Just sit back and enjoy the sunset as you sip a chilled glass of Moroccan white wine.
Enjoy warm weather and blue skies throughout the year.
