Agadir, Taghazout and surrounding areas in a week, alone and on a small budget

by zondervan

I visited Morocco in February 2007 and saw Marrakesh, the Atlas Mountains, Casablanca and Essaoira. It was a great trip but I never made it to Agadir. I have a week at the start of March and want to get down there and enjoy some beaches and sunshine. I have looked at some websites and it said about 70 degrees which is about what it was when I went last time. Is this realistic? I really want some sun after a bleak british winter.

I have never really tried surfing properly and want to try it at Tagazoute. What is the accomodation like there? Is there much of a backpacker scene there? What is the accomodation like? Can anyone recommend any good hostels or budget hotels? I'm travelling alone but usually have no problem meeting people to hang around with.

Beyond Tagazoute and Agadir are there any other places that people would recommend in the area or south of agadir?

Re: Agadir, Taghazout and surrounding areas in a week, alone and on a small budget

Have a look at my pages on Agadir and Morocco - the fishing village of Imousouane north of Agadir is really popular with surfers - as you can see in my pics there - and yes Taghazout is still a surfie town with lessons and rentals advertised - and south of Agadir down at Aglou its also a popular surfers spot. and thenon a bit further south at Mihrleft and Sidi Ifni.
theres a good hotel at Aglou which was cheap enough when I stayed there off season/March or something a few years back - and Taghzaout Im sure youd find something - I know theres a few places in the pockets of tourist resorts along the coast there.
my friends a Moroccan-Norwegian couple who travel from Norway to their family in the northern coastal outskirts of Agadir each year love Taghazout as their favourite spot.
the whole road up to Essaouira is great tho and is worth grabbing a car for if you can. Agadir is known as one of the cheaper places to rent a car as well.
and of course there are surfers destinations on up the coast to Essaouira esp at Sidi Kouki and Diabat and Essaouira itself.
have you invested in a Lonely Planet or Rough guide guidebook for mMorocco tho as therell be some info in these books that will help.

all the best.

Travel Tips for Agadir

Nouveau Tarborjt

by sachara

After I stayed three times in a hotel in the tourist area between the Boulevard Mohammed V and the beach, it was very refreshing to book a hotel in Nouveau Tarborjt at about 15 minutes walk from the beach and about 5 minutes from most places in the citycentre.

Nouveau Tarborjt is a safe and lively area with shops, a market, shops and sidewalk café's and restaurants. There are several midrange and budget hotels, frequented by independent travellers like backpackers and overlanders and also by Moroccans. Many of the hotels and restaurants are situated around the Place Lahcen Tamri in bright blue and white colours (picture 2).

The Mohammed V mosque at the corner of the Avenue du President Kennedy and the Avenue de 29 Fevrier is an important landmark (picture 1 & 3). In Nouveau Tarborjt are wide avenues (picture 4) and cosy alleyways (picture 5).

On our way to the Paradise Valley

by sachara

From Agadir we drove with our car in the direction of the water falls in Immouzzer des Ida Outanane to visit the Paradise Valley. Coming from Tamraght at the coast we drove first through the mountains and along a wide valley (picture 2), Here we made some stops for the views before we entered the narrow scenic gorge (picture 3) into the direction of the Paradise Valley.

The windy and narrow road, twisting along the steep slopes and palm trees (pictures 1, 4 & 5) made it a spectacular trip. Only this route made it allready worth to visit the Paradise Valley.

Sunsets from the fortress above Agadir

by angiebabe

Lots of locals up on the top of the big hill at the fortress above Agadir around sunset time - the camels and their keepers were still there for the tourists - the place is quite busy at sunset time - great views over the port and harbour and Agadir below and out to sea.

Handier to drive up with your rental car! but taxis will bring you up here - the walk down is okay though and the road way is lit until quite late. The walk up is steep and takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

The excellent Musee Municipal

by angiebabe

Excellent collection of Berber jewellery, pottery, a few carpets and wooden doors from local kasbahs.

Well displayed with information given on the items and where they are from. Also very good photographs and interesting displays of local culture and sites of interest in the area including the Berber tribes that live in the mountains nearby.

Amazighe heritage museum, jewellery

by sachara

The collection of traditional jewellery in the Amazighe heritage museum is very special. Anyway I am a lover of this kind of jewellery, especially the Berber and Tuareg style. More than 200 pieces are exhibited in the several exhibition halls. You can find bracelets, fibulas, talismans and necklaces.

The most important piece of the museum is the necklace of Massa. This necklace with a spirale became the emblem of the museum. It is depicted at the poster of the museum (picture 3).
