Purpose-built holidays: Agadir was exclusively renovated for beach holidays in the 1960s, and as a result many buildings have a modernist design which is a complete contrast to what you’ll see on most holidays in Morocco. Structures are quite square and contemporary in design, although the unusual dusky concrete also gives the Agadir holidays a unique look too.
Beautiful parks: Since the rebuild in the 1960s, Agadir holidays also have three charming grassy parks which stand as oases amongst the urban environment. They make a pleasant place for a stroll on your Agadir holidays, and you could even visit the small zoo in one of the parks.
Beach holidays: Agadir holidays are great for beach holidays as there are several beaches close to Agadir and one right within the resort. There’s also Tamaounza and Imouran less than 20km away.
Attractions in Agadir
Agadir Kasbah: The only site to have survived the 1960 earthquake, the huge walls of this old Kasbah date back to the 16th century. Whilst much of the inside was actually destroyed by the force of the quake, the walls were able to withstand the impact. An 8km trip into the hills north of the port in Agadir, it’s quite a strenuous trek to reach the top, but when you do you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding scenery on your Agadir holidays.
Activities in Agadir
Town parks and zoos: There are three different parks to enjoy on Agadir holidays, making for some pleasant leafy respite amidst the dense metropolitan streets. Jardin Olhao is an oasis of tropical plants and palm trees, whilst Jardin Ibn Zaidoun has a children’s play area and some dusky walking paths. Although perhaps the most fun park is the Valee des Oiseaux. Literally translated from French as ‘the valley of birds’ this verdant park has its own zoo where you can view a number of bright and colourful birds such as peacocks, parrots and flamingos. There are some cheeky mountain goats here too!
Museum Municipal du Patrimoine Amazigh: This small museum has a rather long name, but it’s well worth remembering when you’re on Agadir holidays as there are a number of interesting little exhibits here. Spread across two levels, the museum’s main focus is on Berber heritage from the 18th and 19th centuries. Berber is the predominant culture of North African countries, such as Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, and in this museum you can discover more about their traditional clothing, jewellery and handicrafts.
Golfing holidays: There are three golf courses all within easy reaching distance on Agadir holidays. Golf de L’Ocean is the closest, and it’s characterised by flat, open fairways and lush greens. Then there’s the modern Golf du Soleil, which has huge palm trees and some stunning water features. Finally, Golf Royal is a little further away, around 10km from Agadir holidays, but it also has some pleasant foliage and challenging deep bunkers.
Beaches in Agadir
Agadir Beach: The real attraction of Agadir holidays largely lies in the beach. It’s a glorious four mile stretch of intensely golden sand which leads to crystalline waters. It’s certainly one of the cleanest beaches in the whole of Morocco, while the wind further out to sea attracts plenty of people on surfing holidays to this coastline too.
Taghazout Beach: Just north of Agadir holidays, this is another popular place for surfing holidays thanks to the high rolling waves. But even if you just choose this beach for sunbathing holidays, you’ll find lots to love at this smaller, quieter beach with its fine golden sand. You could even stroll into the sleepy village afterwards and explore the traditional Moroccan way of life.
Imouran Beach: Around 17km along the coastline, this is another great alternative to the main beach on Agadir holidays. There’s plenty of golden sand here too, although the main difference is the beach is surrounded by rocky crags and cliffs that provide a scenic backdrop to your sunbathing during Agadir holidays.
Restaurants in Agadir
Little Norway: This quality restaurant on the main road of Agadir serves a range of fantastically flavoursome meals. You can try delicious dishes like scallops or calamari (squid rings) plus classic Moroccan meals like terrine (stew served in authentic clay pots) and ginger and lime steak. The quality is so high here that it’s worth trying this restaurant even if you’re on all inclusive holidays in Agadir.
Le Flore: This restaurant generally serves Moroccan classics such as hearty tagine and herb-flavoured couscous, although they also specialise in seafood, with a selection of fish dishes caught fresh the very same day. Prices are pretty low so it’s a good choice for cheap holidays in Agadir too.
Restaurant Daffy: The restaurants on Agadir holidays largely have a huge selection of authentic Moroccan cuisine, and restaurant Daffy is certainly no different. Here you can choose from flavour-filled tagine, minted lamb and stuffed chicken and lots more besides.
Nightlife in Agadir
Hotel-based bars and clubs: Whilst Morocco is a Muslim country and drinking alcohol is forbidden for local people, there are still plenty of places to enjoy a few cool drinks in the tourist area on Agadir holidays. It’s actually free to enter the all inclusive hotel bars, even if you’re not staying at that particular hotel or having all inclusive holidays there, and there are seven nightclubs around this area too. Look out for the beach bar at Amadil Beach Hotel, Zanzibar, Orange Bleu (which offers salsa dancing), and Flamingo, which is considered to be one of the best clubs in Agadir. Lastly, there’s Disco Papagayo, the largest and liveliest nightclub on Agadir holidays.
Shopping in Agadir
Moroccan markets: Morocco is famed for its lively markets and street traders, and certainly Agadir holidays have this in abundance although unfortunately the stalls are not as vibrant as in Marrakech. The stalls are all focused around the biggest square on Agadir holidays, and from here they offer all sorts of handicrafts, from specially made perfumes to exotic ornaments and expertly woven rugs. If you prefer your shopping with a little more order, you could head to the indoor Marché central where at least there are a few more fixed-price shops where you’re not required to haggle! There’s also the Medina de Cocco Polizzi (designed by the architect of the same name) which is almost a work of art in itself, with its pleasant courtyard and colourful arches. It creates the perfect environment for the many artistic handicrafts on sale.
