    Favorite thing: There are many banks in Agadir and most hotels can change your money into Moroccan Dirhams for you. The exchange rate is a set rate done daily by the government too so no need to shop around for the best rates. The maximum amount you can withdraw from a cash machine is 4,000 dirham. That's about 400 euro, more than the monthly salary for the average Moroccan.

    Most machines accept Debit cards but if you come across one which doesnt work just move onto the next machine and then remember the name of that particular one. Credit cards are not widely accepted for payments, although you can use them at travel agents and many upmarket hotels, restaurants and shops.

    You can also change travellers cheques at most banks which you can use Euros, US Dollars and Sterling cheques but they do charge commission.

    GARDEN OF HOTEL EL TIKIDA BEACH AGADIR

    Favorite thing: I am white like a flour or... excuse, Brits or Scandinavians (usually :-) and I hardly get a tan first of a bit red colour... So, sleeping in the sun on a beach is not for me unless I have an umbrella (it costs :-). And being always moving character, I can't do nothing that is I can't lie on a beach to get a tan more than, say 10-15 min.

    So my main and favourite activity was swimming or better to say diving into large waves in the ocean, some water sports, walking along long beach, watching people and amazing, exotic gardens of some fancy hotels located along the beach.

    AGADIR - PANORAMA FROM THE KASBA HILL

    Favorite thing: Traveling around Morocco by own car, my wife (Urszula = matcrazy0) and I, stopped at many palces along the Atlantic Coast looking for any public beach we used to see in Western Europe and... except of hotel beaches, we didn't find any. There were rather some areas of sandy coast but dirty, with no facilities, no foreign visitors but many local sellers and beggars (kids), Urszula complained.

    So, Agadir was a surprice! The beach was clean, long (8 km, 5 mi), wide with a lot of tourist facilities along (toilets/restrooms, restaurants, bars, water sport equipment hire etc.). There was a very pleasant breeze from the Atlantic which made it a very nice place all through the day. The beach was guarded by local police and there were not many sellers (a few) on the beach. I could see young locals playing football on the edges (western and eastern) of the beach.

    Fondest memory: Wide and loooong sandy beach, to walk along (for me) or to get a tan (for my better half).

    Leave Agadir!

    On our way to Essaouira

    Favorite thing: As Agadir itself doesn't offer anything special, one day we rented a car and went to Essaouira. It's about 2-3 hours drive along the coast road. Even the driving was a pleasent experience, no tourist, only sea on the left and mountains on the right. We passed through some typical countryside villeges, such as Tamri, where there was a huge banana souk.

    The beach

    beach

    Fondest memory: Well, Agadir might not be all that spectacular. But the beach simply is; clean, fine grained, very long and wide - just how a beach should be. The water temperature of the Atlantic Ocean is about 22°C (72°F) in the summer - very refreshing as the air has 30°C (86°F) and up!

    Favorite thing: If you're looking to spend a few relaxing weeks on the beach, Agadir is perfect! But if you'd ike to see "the real Morocco" I'd head for Essaouira or Marrakesh instead, as Agadir is very touristy and not that beautiful, as it was built in the 60's after an erathquake.
