  • Bird Valley

    The Birds Valley or Vallée des Oiseaux is not only an aviary, but also a small zoo. This zoo with mouflons, lama's and monkeys is as zoo itself not really a very interesting and exciting 'must see', but the as a whole with the green ambiance and waterfall in the middle of the town makes it enjoyable to walk around for a while. For families it's a...

  • Souq El-Had

    If you are a market addict like me, you may have a lot to explore at the stalls of the Souq al-Had. So I found at this marketstall boxes with all kind of different stuff from haberdashery, plastics, beans, stones to herbs (picture 1). Of many stuff I couldn't discover what it was, so there still are some mysteries at this market. The combination...

Agadir Restaurants

    A place busy with locals is always a good giveaway to a place being good! Weve returned here a number of times now and it has been reliably good each time - so this is one of those places that make a must-do whenever in town. Many times busy with families and bigger groups - with busy waiters running here and there the waiting time has still been...

  • Seafood next door to the Milanese

    We tried this restaurant when usually we go to the Milanese next door - the menu we could see was a bit more expensive but we thought not by much so ordered.- The mixed seafood grill that is 55 dirham at the Milanese was 60 dirham at El Petit Quai - when it arrived it looked just as good - BUT the calamari which is my favourite was horrible!the...

  • DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY

    In August 2011 I discovered Club Salambbo which is in Banana Village area opposite Fouquet Bar but much higher up. It is a European setting playing global pop music - a great disco experience.What I liked is that it was not overcrowded and it seemed to be a mix of tourists and locals.Drinks were expensive 50dh for a little Heieneken. Further, the...

Agadir Transportation

  • Taxis around Agadir - Petite taxis

    petite taxis are a cheap and fast alternative for getting around Agadir - hail them in the street, but best to ask them how much (ca combine?) for the distance you want to go or ask them to put their meter on if they don't give you a price that youre happy with.Otherwise by western standards taxis are very cheap in Morocco and yet cars and their...

  • To/From Airport

    Local bus number 37leaves from the main road, a short walk outside the airport terminal. It does not go to Agadir itself, but to Inezgane. This town, more or less a suburb of Agadir, serves as the main transport hub in the area. The bus ride from the airport to Inezgane costs 5 dirham. At Inezgane, you can catch another bus (line number 97, 98) to...

  • Going around

    Most of the areas in Agadir I visited are close enough to each other to walk. So I walked most of the time from the corniche to the central market or Nouveau Tarborjt. Within 5 -15 minutes I could reach all places I wanted to visit. If you dont like to walk or have to go to places at a longer distance there are petits taxis and buses. You can also...

Agadir Local Customs

  • Soccer

    The wide beach of Agadir, in the afternoon, looks like a series of soccer fields. Hundreds of youngster share the large space in a never ending animated competition. The wet sand is hard, making the games look more like the regular soccer than beach football. I think that only in Brazil we saw something alike.

  • Camel Tagine

    Well after 5 years or more of much involvement with Morocco Ive had my first meal of camel - as far as Im aware anyway! Camel meat is of course eaten in Morocco but many families would eat what is more easily obtained and prepared for meals being chicken, mutton or beef, or fish or even rabbit.But following my Agadir friends and their knowledge of...

  • Breakfast Moroccan style

    When we made a trip to the Paradise Valley we had breakfast en route. We had a stop at a restaurant in Tamraght 15 KM north of Agadir along the coastal road. It was not on the menu, but my Moroccan friends ordered breakfast Moroccan style for the four of us.We had delicious round local bread. It looks and tasted like my favourite bread baked in the...

  • culture shock

    I flew to Agadir in February 2009 and unsurprisingly heavy rains welcomed us though some days ago it had been quite sunny and warm. Be prepared for it, though if you are not fond of heat and love walking, biking, hiking or whatever it’s the best time for it. Before my stay in Agadir I was sceptical about conditions of a hotel but it was very good....

Agadir Tourist Traps

  • Touts in the beach

    In our first day in Agadir we were contacted in the beach by a nicely speaking guy, inviting us to a "superior" fish lunch in the authenticity of the harbour. We accepted, and went with him. Well, the ambiance was real, the lunch, served in very rustic conditions was plentiful, the fish was fresh, but... we payed 3 times its price in the regular...

  • cafes in the harbour area

    Now, this may not be solely the restaurant's or solely the tour guide's fault... it takes two to Tango!We were charged 150dh for a meal which was advertised, on a board outside, as 34dh or 37dh. I started to question the amount but the 150dh was taken quickly, under the pressure of leaving quickly to get to Essaouia in time!I am still disputing...

Agadir Off The Beaten Path

  • Arriving in Agadir...sights to see out...

    Glad you have chosen to go to Morocco for your trip in June. Agadir is a good base or a handy airport to fly into and then take off for other sights further afield. Being June its summer and getting pretty warm or rather hot in some places so having the beach will be nice.but you dont have to keep Agadir as your base for the whole time. There are...

Agadir Sports & Outdoors

  • Sportactivities at the beach

    You can come to the beach and ocean for swimming and bathing (picture 1). Be careful because of the undercurrents, look for the signs and flags. In the morning I saw lots of boys who came to the beach to play soccer. (picture 4).At the beach you can also rent pedalos, jetski's, surfboards and surfski's. For surfing you have to go 150 m out off the...

  • Beach football

    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.

  • My first ever parasailing!

    I saw parasailing many times before and you could easily find me among spectators of starting and landing parasailers on many European, Tunisian and Turkish beaches. But after long instructions of my lovely wife and short ones of a parasailing guy I did it for the first time just in Agadir and it was great experience, worth the cost... twice less...

  • Modernity

    Agadir was destroyed by a violent earthquake almost 50 years ago. We can see some ruins of the old city, but Agadir is now a modern city. Thus, it is not a great place to see traditional Morocco, only one of the best Moroccan beaches. That's why we spent a week in the beach, and another one travelling in the "old Morocco", in a perfect combination.

    Our favourite place to stay when thinking of Agadir Is a few kilometres further north up the coast at Tagazout. Usually we stay in an apartment complex that has been built looking over a small bay with beach so the views are great and the sound of the crashing waves I love at night. We can take the stairs down through the complex that come out at...

  • Agadir in March

    Hi, March is generally a very nice month - Agadir is generally warmer or milder than other places around that may still be a bit chilly. If the weather is sunny its generally warm to even hot - but can be variable and changeable so best to take layers and light but warm fleeces are good in case its very cold or in case you decide to go have...
