Welcome to Agadir
A travel guide to Agadir, Morocco, will be setup here shortly.. while you wait, have a look at these photos from January 2012:
The beach in Agadir is great. White sand, width of appx. 130 metres, 5 kilometres long.
In the afternoon you may book a 30 minute camel riding trip on this camel. His name is Mucho. It costs 50 dirhams for 30 minutes ride and is completely safe according to Mucho’s owner. And no, the 50 dirhams was his first offer and I did not do any haggling.
A large open square marks the centre of Agadir. Not very busy at the middle of the day as you can see.
The market square is another sad slab of concrete. Be prepared to haggle.
The newest and most fancy part of Agadir is the Agadir Marina. A collection of nice cafes, boutiques and European shops (Mango, Zaro etc.).
Beach and sun
The beach and the sun is the major attractions of Agadir. The whole city was destroyed in a large eartquake in 1960. The city was then rebuilt as a tourist resort aimed at attracting European tourists. And yes, it can remind of the older resorts along Costa del Sol in Spain and sunny destinations.
Quite a nice photo I think. Oranges in Morocco are very tasty and juicy.
The local mosque in Agadir is a landmark. It is not possible for non-muslims to visit the Mosque.
Plenty of mega hotels
All the large hotel chains of the world seems to be established in Agadir. The fanciest hotels are along the beach. You may choose from various hotels from Riu, Club Med, Sofitel, Iberostar, Decameron and many more chains.
