"Agadir has everything you want from a holiday resort, there are sandy beaches, shops and a newly built marina with lovely restaurants."
Agadir, an ancient city, was destroyed in an earthquake in 1960 and rebuilt 2km further south. It is located at the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, close to the Atlas Mountains, and is the largest coastal resort in Morocco. It boasts gorgeous white sandy beaches as well as a beautiful waterfront promenade and a recently built marina with luxury shops and restaurants.
A laid-back city that is tethered to the sea, it is the perfect destination for families and those seeking a traditional beach holiday. It is especially renowned for its surfing with the nearby Taghazout Beach, renowned for being the best in the entire country. Agadir is a charming resort destination that does exactly what it says it will, it may not have the history of somewhere like Marrakesh but is exceedingly good at what it does. Visit the ancient Kasbah for spectacular panoramic view of the entire town. Souk El Had is the region’s largest market with around 600 small shops and stalls surrounded by high walls.
