Aglou Things to Do

    some of the most beautiful sunsets Ive seen have been in Morocco - and at a beachside or coastal setting is a rather picturesque option

    The promenade along the beach at Aglou provides some height and elevation which makes for lovely sunsets across the ocean towards Aglou - and there are a few cafes just there on the promenade you could sit at with coffee or orange juice and watch and photograph the sun setting

    Also a good place would be along the cliffs or walkways along by the cave houses/fisherman cottages just north of Aglou plage - there is a road above that follows that ridge along that you could back to Aglou plage on if its getting too dark to safely go back along the rocky shore line.

    -as does the height from the road that runs above Aglou that follows the coast down to Mihrleft and Sidi Ifni which is where we were driving along coming up the coast in February and got some lovely sunset shots.

    When you drive down into Aglou heading for the beach you will come to the carpark and then from there a long embankment or promenade which has been paved for a long way. Along here you can view the beach and crashing waves below you. The coastline stretches to the north into the distance and in the south you can see the bay of fishermen's houses that line the rocky shore to the promintory.

    You can sit in the sun at one of the restaurants and cafes along the promenade, as we did!, or take the stairs down on to the beach.

    My first visit to Aglou we ate in the restaurant where we stayed at Hotel Aglou Beach - paying 55 dirham each for a huge plate of seafood each.

    3 or so years later with another friend we chose a cafe at the end of the restaurants and cafes along the promenade - eve though the first one you come to had loads of people at it - the place we chose had a huge but clean eating area inside and friendly and well dressed waiters and we were able to sit outside in the sun under a sun umbrella - the menu and prices were okay and though the waiter reckoned that one plate of seafood wouldnt be enough for 2 people to share I reckoned that wouldnt be the case and we were right!

    We ordered a salade nicoise each - for 12 dirham each - which is a plate of various salad vegetables arranged on a plate with a big dollop of mayonnaise - and a mixed seafood platter for 70 dirham - I also ordered a large coffee for 12 dirham.

    Favorite Dish: The whole lot was very good - though I didnt quite enjoy the seafood as much as I would have hoped - there is a tendency in many places serving seafood to overcook the calamari and fish and also I dont so much like small fish like sardines (unless they are squashed on toast!)

    It was a bargain for lunch though - 49 dirham which is just under £4 (depending on the exchange rate! - as the sterling was down against the dirham this trip from the usual 15-16 dirham to 13-14 dirham for £1) in a lovely setting in the sun after coming from cold London!

    Salade Nicoise&grande noss noss by the sea enough seafood for 2 enjoy coffee and seafood in the sun beside the sea the cafe restaurant we chose

    One of the two by the beach by the moment- they build more- normal "Tajin" fear prices and friendly staff. No Alcohol but you can drink your own- remember to bring with you a bottle of good wine- and enjoy the sunset…
