Travel from Marrakesh to Taghazoute

by zondervan

What is the best way of getting from Marrakesh to Taghazote? Should I take a bus from Marrakesh to Essaouira and then change bus or take one to Agadir and then change? How regular are the buses to both locations from Marrakesh and what is the price like?

Re: Travel from Marrakesh to Taghazoute

buses are pretty cheap in Moroco - wouldnt expect to pay more than £10 - grande taxis which are faster are not much more so either option is good. Taghazout is only a few kms north of Agadir whereas Essaouira is 160 km north of Agadir.
so up to you - if you want to go see Essaouira then why not - but if your aim is to get to Taghazout fairly direct then obviously the answer is via Agadir!

buses are usually fairly frequent thru the day - whether the international standard ones of CTM or Supratours, or local buses that will take a bit longer as there will be many stops to let passengers who want to get on and off at many places along the way whereas CTM and supratours are for those wanting to go to Agadir or Chichaoua along the way.

otherwise go by grande taxi - they leave when all 6 passengers seats are full - you can make it a bit faster and more comfortable by buying 2 seats - esp the 2 front seats if you can for optimal viewing if you want to take photos and for comfort.
getting to taghzout from Agadir should be about the same - by grande taxi - usualy the grande taxi stations are in same vicinity as bus stations.

Travel Tips for Agadir

Gnaoua art from Essaouira

by sachara

In summer 2007 I discovered at the cultural fair at the Passage Ait Souss a container and a traditional tent with colourful Gnaoua art from Essaouira. The inside, but especially the outside of the container was painted with colourful paintings in this unique artstyle.

Earlier in the year I visited in Essaouira Galerie Damgaard. Frederic Damgaard originally from Denmark opened his gallery in 1988 to give the possibility to local artists to exhibit their work.

Essaouira is known by this group of so-called free artists, all with their own unique style. Their naive work in bright colours is based on myths, depicting animals, human beings, dots and geometric patterns. In their work you can recognise the Berber and African origin of the Moroccan folk-art.

Beach football

by matcrazy1

Moroccans love football. Each morning I saw young natives playing football on the beach, on the less crowded or empty areas at the two ends of the beach, not to disturb tourists.
If you want you can always join them, they are very friendly. They succesfully asked a few foreign visitors to join them but... not me.

Visit to a mountain village

by sachara

From Agadir we made in 1992 a one day tour with a landrover to the mountains in the area south east of Agadir and north east of Tiznit. First we visited the barrage and lake in this area and then we headed on unpaved roads into the mountains.

With a donkey we took a track to a small mountain village. On our way up we had a good look at the wadi with palm trees and the small fields of the villagers. The village looked very scenic and the villagers were very friendly, came to see us to say hello.

See my travelogue.

Choo Choo Train

by gugi66

There is a litle train that drives tourists around central Agadir (sigtseeing). It looks really fun but it´s all crap.

Don´t take the train it was nothing special about it and you don´t see anything that havent seen alredy.

Valley of the birds, green walk in the town

by sachara

The Valley of the Birds or Vallée des Oiseaux is created in a dry riverbed running down from the Boulevard Hassan II to the Boulevard de 20 Aout close to the beach. This narrow green park is a popular place for families to have a look at the birds and to visit the playgrounds.

The park has two entrances, so you can make a shaded and green walk coming from the seaside to the citycentre, like I did. You start at the entrance at Bv de 20 Aout. The entrance fee is only 5 dirham for adults. Without hardly any notice during this lovely walk you undercross the Avenue Mohammed and walk along the Place d' l'Esperance. And all of the sudden you stand at the Bv Hassan II close to the Central Market in the citycentre.

Opening hours of the Valley of the Birds: daily from 09:30-12:30 and 14:30-18:00
