Agadir is a beautiful city on the south coast of Morocco. After a huge earthquake in 1960, the city was rebuilt as a modern resort, with a promenade, marina, and golf courses too! It boasts beautiful sights, including the original old wall, a long crescent-shaped beach, and the looming Anti-Atlas mountains.
The beach is the perfect place to soak up the sun in Agadir. You can sunbathe on the golden sands and release your energy in the water, with opportunities to windsurf, sail, and surf. Other than being a great beach-holiday destination, Agadir is full of Moroccan culture and history to immerse yourself in. You can’t leave without riding a camel or shopping at a traditional souk!
Agadir is perfect for couples as they can find romance by sipping on cocktails, lounging at the beach, and trekking through the city’s wonderful scenery. It’s a great family holiday too, with a range of beach activities and camel rides in the desert keeping both parents and children entertained.
The beach isn’t the only attraction in Agadir, so make sure not to miss out on anything!
Agadir’s nightlife consists of a few clubs, bars, and pubs along the palm-lined promenade. For a more relaxed evening, you can book to see a Berber show or puff on shisha whilst looking out onto the beautiful beach.
Moroccan cuisine is simply delicious, with a variety of dishes to choose from. Along the promenade you’ll find many eateries serving everything from seafood to traditional meals like djaja mahamara – chicken stuffed with couscous.
If you’re looking for a break from the beaches, head to Crocoparc. A safe and exciting environment for children, this establishment is home to many crocodiles, iguanas, tortoises, and snakes!
Agadir beach is the perfect place to spend your day. Stretching over 9 kilometres, this beach boasts pristine sand, a variety of water sports, camels to ride, and a long promenade with plenty of places to buy refreshments.
The best shopping is done at Souk El Had. This is a large souk with around 6000 stalls selling traditional Moroccan items like clothing, rugs, pottery, spices, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
Annually in July, Agadir hosts the Timitar Festival. This is one of Morocco’s biggest events, as it brings together a diverse mix of musical talent, performing, traditional, contemporary, Moroccan, and global music!
Agadir enjoys a hot climate all year round. The months of June to August see little to no rain but also are known to witness heatwaves – sometime reaching up to 40 degrees. For this reason, the best time to go is in the autumn or spring, when the weather is more comfortable but still warm enough for a beach holiday.
The Moroccan Dirham is used here.
