Agadir Sightseeing

Sightseeing


The town's new purpose-built marina, with its trendy restaurants, cafés, boutiques and shops, provides a very attractive setting for a wander at any time of the day, but is particularly lovely at sunset.


Get a wonderful bird's-eye view of Agadir from the old Kasbah. Only the walls of the ancient town remain as a memorial to the thousands who died in a devastating earthquake in 1960. The hillside below lights up at night with fluorescent Arabic writing.

Key Areas


If you fancy taking to the high seas then book a boat trip at the Marina. There's a range of cruiser or catamaran type vessels available. Lunch is usually provided on board and fishing can be arranged.


If you fancy a beach or sunset horse or camel ride then contact Amodou Cheval. Just 13 km from Agadir, their Ranch provides hour, half day or full day treks. The longer treks usually cover beach and mountains areas where they stop for refreshments at a Berber house. Transport provided to and from hotel. www.amodoucheval.com

Day Trips


The very ecccentric fishing/surfing village of Taghazout lies about 20km north of Agadir. A local bus ride costs only 5dh and is well worth the journey. Lots of tiny surfer shops and cafes to visit.


Just 30 km from Agadir in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains lies the exotic Paradise Valley. For the more energetic it is possible to take a guided trek to spectacular rock pools. Excursions can be organised through local agencies.


Aourir, commonly known as Banana Village (for its delicious bananas) is only 12km north of Agadir. There you can also find two very popular surf beaches; Banana Beach and Devil's Rock. Every Wednesday there is the local souk or market and the village restaurants are famous for their lamb tagines.


The Souss-Massa National Park stretches along the coast for more than 80km south of Agadir. There are many beautiful beaches, villages and fishing harbours to visit within the park, making a day trip well worth the effort.
