Travel to Agadir: Guide to Agadir Travel

Agadir is Morocco’s premier beach resort, a city that offers you a little of everything within hip, modern and comfortable surroundings. You will find a fabulous bay skirting the Atlantic Ocean, a magnificent beach with a great sweep of sand, excellent water sport facilities, a fine range of accommodation and a vibrant nightlife.

For a more authentic Moroccan taste, Agadir can be a great staging post for easy local excursions, including delightful waterfalls at Immouzer, a beautiful palm-lined gorge at Paradise Valley and fine surfing at the laid-back surfing resort of Taghazout.

Agadir Travel: Sights and Activities

The major selling point of Agadir is its crescent beach, a wide expanse of fine sand which extends an impressive 9-km to the south of town. It is very clean, swept each morning and constantly patrolled by lifeguards. Safe swimming coupled with 300 days of sun a year make it a prime destination for package-tour holidaymakers.

However, the town itself is modern and lacks any sights to keep you occupied. Unless you’re a serious beach lover, you will need to take some excursions to nearby local attractions in the Souss Valley or even further afar.
