Cheap flights to Agadir
Perfect year-round weather, beaches to die for and prices that won’t break the bank balance; this pretty much sums up what Morocco’s premier resort Agadir is all about.
Agadir promises more than 300 days of sunshine a year, plenty of the sandy stuff – 10 kilometres in all – and beautifully warm waters that are enticing even in the depths of winter. And because this city was destroyed in an earthquake back in 1960, you can expect a modern resort built specifically with the tourist in mind, complete with five star hotels, self-catering apartments and a beachfront packed with bars, cafes and restaurants galore.
And when you’re not relaxing on the beach or ordering cocktails from the bar of your hotel pool, you’ll probably be taking some jet-skis out for a spin, driving some quad bikes into the desert, or having a go at a spot of camel trekking. Oh, and let’s not forget those golf courses – all three of them!
Banana Beach provides a stunning backdrop for the colourful array of fresh produce on display at the Wednesday market (souk) in the village of Aourir. Just 12km from Agadir, you can get there by bus for six dirhams (€0.50).
Watch 4x4s thunder by as they try to win the Argan Trophy. The event takes place on an exciting circuit through the Anti-Atlas mountains (12-14 April).
La Vallee Des Oiseau is a mini-zoo, home to a collection of small mammals and birds. Located between Boulevard Hassan II and Boulevard du 20 Aout, it provides an interesting walk in the centre of town and is open daily from 9am-6pm. Admission is free.
