Agadir is a beautiful beach resort in Morocco that's situated on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, along the foot of the majestic Atlas Mountains. It is located near most of the important cities of Morocco, including Casablanca and Marrakesh. A short train ride from Marrakesh can get you to this beach town.

 

There is plenty to do on Agadir holidays - you can visit the old fortifications of Kasbah or shop to your heart’s content at some of the local markets, which deal with spices, textiles and jewellery. Spend your morning relaxing at the hammam and your afternoon wandering inside the city's local museum. There are plenty of places to eat in Agadir, which serve delicious and authentic Mediterranean, Moroccan and European delicacies - so you're sure to indulge in a colourful plate or two.

 

It's good news for those looking for sunshine and warmth, as holidays in Agadir serve up wonderfully warm summers and mild winters. Lounge in one of its many Blue Flag beaches located in the north of the city. They are excellent not just for sun-bathing but also for water surfing. However, Agadir holidays offer more than just miles of glorious sand and sea. If you delve a little deeper, you’ll find a city full of olde-worlde charm and old-fashioned buildings. In spite of being rich in tradition, the city has a lively nightlife scene as well. There are a plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars, which are open throughout the year, making this beach town a buzzing place to be.

Learn to Surf

 

 

Learn to Surf

Agadir's calm, safe and golden Blue Flag beach is undoubtedly the main attraction. Travel a couple of kilometres south along the coast and you'll arrive at Tamraght Beach, a laid-back stretch where you can learn how to surf, windsurf, kite surf and more at one of the seaside schools. For those who are adept at riding the waves, head to nearby Taghazout and surf breaks such as Hash Point, Anchor Point and La Source where the waves are a little more challenging. If you don't fancy taking a dip, watch the surfers from one of the chilled beach cafés instead.

Hitch a Camel Ride

 

Hitch a Camel Ride

For the quintessential Moroccan experience, why not take a camel ride along the sands in Agadir? Local guides will explain more about the history of Agadir and the surrounding areas and keep your camera ready for great pics of the beach and city and the obligatory selfie with the camels!

 
See the Medieval Fortress

 

See the Medieval Fortress

If you're a sucker for sights, climb to the medieval hilltop fortress of Kasbah and soak up stunning views of Agadir and its golden coastline. Dating back to 1540, all that remains of Agadir's captivating castle today is its sturdy walls and entrance. Enjoy a stroll around the fortress' remnants and imagine the scene when Berber tribes roamed the terrain.

 
Hit the Beach Resorts

 

Hit the Beach Resorts

Agadir has a great resort vibe with all the rides, family friendly restaurants and entertainment you would expect of a classic Med resort. Agadir's main tourist spots overlook the beach and there is a charming promenade running along the seafront. The new marina has a stylish bar and restaurant scene while more traditional tavernas can be found in the town, just a stone's throw from the beach. During the day, the 9km beach is Agadir's most popular attraction but if you'd rather settle on more secluded sands, Sunset Beach and Palm Beach are less crowded and just as picturesque. Or head to the aptly named Kilometre 25 beach, for 25 kilometres of soft sand. Bliss!

 
Live it Up with Lively Evenings

 

Live it Up with Lively Evenings

Agadir's lively nightlife is another reason why this exotic, sun-soaked resort just keeps on getting more popular. The town boasts restaurants, clubs and bars perfect for friends and family. For a romantic evening of entertainment, Orange Cafe is situated in a quaint fountain courtyard complete with chilled Arabic electronica on the stereo. Experience an authentic Moroccan evening with sunken floors, cushioned seating and magnificent music along Boulevard du 20 Aout and Rue du Oued Souss or for a big night on the town check out Le So, Agadir's multi-storey club. Papa Guyos is another popular nightclub tucked inside Hotel Riu Tikida Beach, with after-midnight music from international DJs.

 
Fall for the Food

 

Fall for the Food

If you're a foodie you'll find lots of tasty treats in Agadir. For fresh seafood head to the city's biggest and best fish market in the port area where you can devour fresh BBQ fish while watching boats unload their catch of the day. If you're after more authentic food try Agadir's pastilla, a delicious pastry parcel made with fish or chicken before being dusted with icing sugar and baked until crispy and golden – perfect for snacking on when rummaging through the souks. Tagines are another deletable option and these clay pots are packed with flavoursome spices, succulent chicken or fish and pomegrante or apricots. If you're feeling thirsty, sip on traditional Moroccan mint tea and enjoy a sweet snack such as Kaab-el-ghzal, filled with gorgeously gooey almond paste.

 
Shop at The Grand Souk

 

Shop at The Grand Souk

No trip to Agadir is complete without a stroll around the souks. Agadir’s most impressive market is the Souk el Had, situated in a massive walled enclosure on Rue Chair al Hamra. You can find everything in this old market from fruits, vegetables and spices to clothes, shoes and souvenirs. The best days to visit are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, when the souk tends to be a little less crowded.

 
Take a trip to Marrakech

 

 

Take a trip to Marrakech

For a real change of pace take a full-day excursion to Marrakech. Just over three hours from the sandy beaches of Agadir, this vibrant and colourful hub is one of the most popular city break hotspots. Head to the Medina to browse the vibrant stalls selling everything from oils and slippers to rugs, pashminas and jewellery. Lying in the shadow of the majestic Atlas Mountains, the Red city is a treasure trove of spice-scented restaurants, famed palaces and iconic ancient sights.
