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.
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.
