Agadir Beach is an impressive stretch of white-golden sand backed with palm trees and a promenade. Set on the mid-Atlantic coast, Agadir is probably Morocco’s most modern city. It was built as a resort town after a devastating earthquake destroyed much of the old town in the 1960s.
With a marina, golf courses, restaurants, luxury hotels, shopping, and an incredible beach, this is one of the most popular destinations in Morocco.
The city is a somewhat curious blend of modernist European and traditional Moroccan architecture, and this is reflected to some extent in the people. There is a mix of expats and Moroccans living here and although this is a Muslim country attitudes are very relaxed and welcoming in Agadir.
The beachfront, with its promenade, are where it’s at in Agadir. You will find plenty of cafes and bars to relax in and enjoy watching life go by. This is also the place to find one of the city’s top notch saefood restaurants.
Agadir is a great spot for families and those seeking an easy, relaxing getaway. With 300 days of sunshine a year, and all the facilities you could need it is a great option. However, for those seeking a little more adventure and history it may feel a little limited. The good news is there are plenty of great spots brimming with history and wild beauty within a short drive of the city.
For surfers there are some good waves at the main Agadir Beach, but there are world-class waves up the coast at Taghazout. And for those looking for some of Morocco’s natural beauty, Souss Massa National Park is equally close with its deserted beaches and rare birdlife.
