History and culture
Agadir was traditionally a small fishing village, which is still rooted in its customs with a wild marine life, picturesque harbour and delicious seafood restaurants. Agadir was rebuilt after a devastating earthquake wiped out the whole city in the 1960s. The city was rebuilt a few miles south from its original place and features modern buildings, floral parks and wide grid-like streets, which are easy to navigate around than most Moroccan cities. However, the city hasn’t lost its traditional charm, with colourful souks, spas and mosques which can be explored.
Laid back nightlife
Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in one of the many bars in Agadir. The nightlife is low key compared to the cosmopolitan Casablanca and Marrakech, but there’s enough to keep you entertained if you are after a relaxing break away. Enjoy an authentic Moroccan meal and a cocktail or two in one of the beachfront restaurants or try you luck in one of the vibrant casinos. Pay a visit to one of the bars or venues that often host live music and traditional belly dance performances.
