Golden beaches, modern hotels, spicy markets, warm, sunny days – there are plenty of reasons to go to Agadir…
Morocco’s main beach destination, Agadir offers a charming blend of days on the sands and a modern city that has been dusted with old-world charm. An earthquake ravaged Agadir in 1960. Planners took the opportunity to rebuild the city near the original, adding wide French-style boulevards, a seafront promenade and pleasant hotels set amid lush parkland.
It is far from typical Morocco, but many visitors come for the lovely climate, delightful cafes and warm hospitality of the locals.

Top five attractions
The Old Casbah
This hilltop fortress stands high above the newer Agadir. Take a steady walk up the hill or get a taxi for terrific views of the city and a little glimpse into the past. There isn’t much to see, but it’s worth the trip.
Souk el Had
A new handbag, a bottle of Argan oil, a traditional Moroccan lamp – whatever you think you’re coming to buy, be prepared to leave with more as this bustling market tempts even the sternest of spenders. Enter at gates 5-10 to head straight for the tourist goods.
La Medina d’Agadir
A modern, purpose-built arts and cultural centre, this medina nevertheless retains the charm of a traditional village. Watch craftspeople at work and buy their wares as a souvenir.
Souss-Massa National Park
This park will delight bird-watchers, who can expect to see bald ibis, spoonbills and warblers, plus many other winged creatures. Four-legged animals, such as gazelle, are protected in captive breeding programmes too.
Drive east for an hour from Agadir and you will see the colossal terracotta defensive walls of the city of Taroudant. Markets make this unique site feel like a mini Marrakech.
Your holiday album will be full of colourful snaps when you attend one of these top events…
Honey Festival; May: Nearby Argana hosts this popular celebration of the humble honeybee and its produce. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the event for you.
Sahraoui Festival; June: Camel races, and traditional dancing and singing form the backbone of this summer event in Agadir.
Moussem of Tan Tan in Goulimine; July: This is a full-on day trip from Agadir (or stopover close to Goulimine), but the experience is unforgettable. Tuareg Nomads come from the Sahara to trade goods, buy (and race) camels and horses, and keep traditional elements of their culture alive.
