Shared taxis and the occasional bus leave from a small depot hidden in the backstreets some distance from the seafront. I arrived from Inezgane (a large market town between Agadir and it's airport, with good transport connections) in about 4 hours, which took the scenic route through Massa, Plage d'Aglou and Mirhleft, all on a coastal route, spectacular in parts. Sidi Ifni wasn't the most popular route, and my fellow passengers had all been waiting a while for a sixth person (i.e. me) to turn up. Likewise, heading south from Sidi Ifni was time consuming. I was heading to Smara, so that meant changing at Goulimime and again at Tan Tan...but wait long enough and something will happen, either another passenger will roll up or you'll come to an agreement with the driver over how much the empty seats will cost.

Sidi Ifni is very popular with elderly French tourists who drive their camper vans down from Europe. You'll often see them playing boules on the old airstrip to the south of the main town, much to the fascination of the local kids. A few locals also join in sometimes and it can get quite lively at times as they all take it extremely seriously, especially the women!
Did I really just say 'bowls' and 'lively' in the same sentence? I told you this town was laid back!
