Read more about Agadir

Feel the North African heat in Agadir, the Moroccan major city that has something for everyone. If you’re seeking a beachy break, you’ll find a peaceful spot of shore on the sands of Plage d’Agadir. History buffs will appreciate the unique museums and architecture. Plus, for the evenings, the variety of bars and clubs in the city cater to all tastes. With a spacious beach, delicious food and fantastic nightlife you can enjoy the Moroccan sunshine in whichever way you please in this wonderful seaside town.

Beaches
A spacious stretch of shore, Plage d’Agadir is a whopping 10km of luscious golden sand. A perfect space for sunbathing, the crescent-shaped beach features sun loungers to rent and space for those who simply lay a towel down and relax. Throughout summer, a great selection of beach games and watersports are available on the beach. A lovely range of bars and restaurants are along the promenade, perfect for food and drinks in between sunbathing.

Food & Drink
When you think of Moroccan cuisine, you may just think of couscous. However, the North African country offers an abundance of tastes and textures throughout its dishes. Tagines are largely used for Moroccan cooking, mainly to make casseroles typically made with meat, vegetables, dried fruit, spices and nuts. A lovely vegetable-based dish to try is zaalouk, made from cooked aubergines and tomatoes. As a coastal town, Agadir also boasts delicious seafood, and Le Blancs is a highly recommended restaurant to sample delightful fresh fish dishes.

Culture
Take in the culture of Agadir at La Medina d’Agadir, a collection of beautifully designed buildings hosting art workshops, studios and an ethnological museum. Another museum to visit is the Memoire d’Agadir, a quaint museum displaying the past of Agadir and showing the time around the ‘great earthquake’ in 1960, the most destructive earthquake in Moroccan history. As a predominantly Muslim country, Morocco also features some stunning mosques to see. Due to this, you may want to keep in mind your clothing, as it is respectful to locals to be modestly dressed.

Nightlife
Whether you prefer to spend the evening enjoying quiet drinks or love to dance ‘til you drop, Agadir has a wonderful range of nightlife options to suit you. Over on Avenue Hassan II, there is a selection of cafes and restaurants for a peaceful evening out. Those who love a night out on the tiles can head to Flamingo Oriental Night Club or Papagayo Night Club to dance to the hottest hits until the early morning. Feeling fancy? The So Lounge is an exclusive club with chic interiors and a fabulous ambience.

Things To Do on Agadir Holidays

Souss Massa National Park
Discover Agadir’s natural side and visit the Souss Massa National Park. A protected stretch of coastal land just south of Agadir city centre, the park is filled with sand dunes, cliffs and is a great place for birdwatching. Some birds to look out for include Marbled Ducks, Booted Eagles, Purple Herrons and Great Spotted Cuckoos. Even if you’re not an avid birdwatcher, the park is a lovely place to spend a peaceful day out.

Souk El Had d’Agadir
A traditional Moroccan Souk with a fantastic selection of goods to browse, the Souk El Had d’Agadir is the perfect place to experience the bustling market atmosphere. From spices to shoes and vegetables to vases, a wander through the souk will fulfil your retail therapy needs.

Crocoparc
A day out for the whole family, Agadir’s Crocoparc is a park filled with beautiful gardens and, of course, crocodiles! See hundreds of the scaly creatures lazing around, plus a botanical garden and a cactus garden. Kids will love the playgrounds, workshops and the amphitheatre where shows and educational presentations take place.

Moroccan Hammam
Treat yourself to a relaxing trip to a Moroccan Hammam, a spa with multiple rooms where you will experience a range of treatments. You’ll be scrubbed and bathed in a variety of temperatures, leaving your skin feeling as smooth as silk. Plus, in most Hammams, you can pay a bit extra for a massage to be included, if you want to feel completely zen.

Culture

History lovers will love a holiday to Agadir as the town enjoys a hugely interesting past. Way back in Medieval times the town was just a tiny fishing village with a single harbour until the Portuguese arrived in 1505, thereby beginning a growth in population and ensuring that the town enjoyed huge economic prosperity for almost two hundred years.

In 1960 meanwhile, Agadir was almost totally destroyed by a huge earthquake that buried the town, killing almost 15,000 people. Reconstruction began in 1961.

Cultural events are arguably the most enjoyable aspect of a holiday, and Agadir has plenty of them. Animal lovers will want to visit the Massa Nature Reserve, which is only a short drive outside of the town. It offers the opportunity to admire rare and beautiful birds, as well as jackals, mongoose and herds of gazelles. For a truly bizarre experience, May sees the town host its annual Honey Festival, where historic beehives are said to be in the largest in the world.

In November meanwhile the towns yearly Fish and Seafood Exhibition offers visitors the chance to sample lots of delicious food, while in December the Agadir festival is celebrated with arts, crafts and music.
