Agadir

Agadir holidays

The Agadir region, on Morocco’s west coast, takes the crown as the country’s most popular pick for a beach getaway. Its biggest draw is the 9km-long stretch of golden sand, which is dotted with lavish hotels, fun-filled waterparks and amazing bars and restaurants. Trace the promenade and enjoy chilling on the sand or trying out the local surf. But remember to saunter back inland to uncover its characterful quarters, cute tea cafés and mystifying minarets. When you aren’t seeking souvenirs in the souks, venture to the once-laidback fishing village of Taghazout, for lashings of authenticity.

Hit the beach

Morocco’s Atlantic coast is famed for brilliant beach breaks. And when Agadir’s main Blue Flag stretch runs for 9km without stopping, you’re bound to find the perfect sunbathing spot. It’s really clean and well-tended to, and there are lifeguards on hand, which means it’s suitable for families. It boasts super conditions for surfing and water sports too if you fancy hitting the waves.

Super souks!

Shop ‘til you drop at Souk El Had – one of the biggest and most traditional markets across the whole of Morocco. It’s spread over a huge 13 hectares and is home to more than 6,000 shops and stalls, so you’re in for a real shopping extravaganza. Browse colourful spices, the freshest exotic fruits, twinkling lanterns and ceramic tagine pots. Haggling welcome!

Fabulous food and drink to try

Feeling adventurous and want to try something new? Dig into the local cuisine and unlock a whole new world for your senses. Thanks to its prime coastal location, you can expect fish dishes as fresh as they come. Traditional tagine dishes feature mounds of cous cous piled high, then topped with succulent stewed meat and vegetables. Mint tea and mini pasty parcels called pastillas are also big business around here.

Beaches

Agadir's beaches are a sun-soaked paradise along Morocco's Atlantic coast. With miles of soft golden sand and clear blue waters, nearly six to be precise, they offer the ideal spots for a sun-drenched day of R&R. Watch surfers catching thrilling waves and then indulge in delicious seafood right by the shore. With a stunning sea view, we might add!
