Enjoying over 300 days of annual sunshine, Morocco’s largest beach resort is set on a vast protected beach.
Once a traditional Moroccan town, Agadir was completely rebuilt as a result of a devastating earthquake in 1960.
Today, a modern resort, Agadir’s beach is home to a variety of watersports, horse and camel riding, and of course relaxation.
A lively resort with many bars and restaurants and a great deal of entertainment, Agadir also offers a quieter district for those in search of relaxation. Resort style hotels provide, amongst many facilities a selection of restaurants, bars, sporting equipment and plenty of space in which to relax.
Agadir holiday highlights
• Just south of Agadir, where the Souss river flows to the Atlantic, estuarine mud flats are home to a staggering 414 species of birds including greater flamingo, cormorants, little egret, bald ibis (in winter months) and black winged stilts. The migratory periods of February to April and September to November offer the best sightings.
• Imouzzer is a paradise like valley lined with towering palms and just 35 miles north east of Agadir. The Berber village, is renowned for its honey production and is celebrated in a May festival. There is also a weekly souk or market, and spectacular seasonal waterfalls which are best seen in spring.
• An hour along the Souss Valley is Taroudant. Known as the small Marrakech, it is definitely worth a visit either as a day trip from Agadir or as an overnight stop.
• There are three excellent courses for golfing. Golf Du Soleil, Golf les Dunes and the Royal Golf Club host 63 holes of challenging golf.
• Maybe one of the most interesting markets is the Dromedary Souk that takes place on a Saturday morning at dawn. Those taking part are called the ‘men of blue’ named after the indigo coloured wraps they wear.
