Book a hotel in Agadir
With approximately 340 days of sunshine and six kilometers of soft white sands, Agadir is Morocco’s premiere beach resort! Nestled among the verdant valleys of the Great Souss and with the majestic range of the Anti-Atlas rearing up behind it, this modern, cosmopolitan city has all the attendant pleasures, thrills and luxuries you can ask for. So, if you’re looking to relax, soak up the sun and be pampered or if you want to fill your days and nights with adrenalin-filled adventures, Agadir is the ideal holiday location.
The beating heart of Agadir around which everything revolves is its spectacular crescent shaped bay. The white sandy beach, which stretches for as far as the eye can see, provides some of the safest bathing in Morocco and is the daytime destination for most visitors. Whether it is soaking up the sun, taking a camel ride or catching some waves, the beach provides something for all tastes.
Tracing the curve of the bay is Boulevard 20 Aout, Agadir’s main thoroughfare along which you will find many of its exclusive hotels and beachside (more...) resorts and a host of cafés, bars and restaurants. One block back from here, you will find the cities main shopping area centred on Boulevard Hassan II and Avenue du Prince Moulay Abdullah.
Further inland is the area of New Talborjt, where most of Agadir’s budget accommodation is to be found. To get a taste of the hustle and bustle of old Agadir, head down to the port where you can watch the fishermen bringing in the daily catch, head out to the souk and do a spot of bartering, or trek up to the remains of the 16th-century Kasbah and suck in the spectacular sights over the bay.
