The perfect vacation feeling? Remember taking in the spicy ocean air while strolling along seafront boardwalks in shorts and a t-shirt well into the warm night. Remember the foreign sounds coming from the souvenir shops, the omnipresent scent of suntan lotion and the sand in your shoes. Agadir brings back marvelous memories of the perfect holidays. The best thing is that you can always make new memories!
After Marrakech and the capital, Rabat, Agadir is the main destination in Morocco for fun in the sun and in the water. While your kids are building sand castles, you can relax in the shade of a beach umbrella – Agadir offers pleasant temperatures all year round. However, the White City on the Atlantic is not only made for families. It has a vibrant nightlife for couples and single travelers as well as many cultural treasures. While most ancient sites were destroyed in the 1960 earthquake, the kasbah built at 236 meters in the 15th century has not lost any of its splendor. Because Agadir was rebuilt from the ground up after the earthquake, the cityscape is modern. Marina Agadir with its yacht harbor, diverse restaurants, hotels, and night clubs opened ten years ago. Agadir has the best infrastructure in the entire country. If you love sports, you can look forward to well-maintained golf courses and tennis courts, and to spiking up your adrenaline water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, or diving.
The seemingly endless beach of Agadir meanders along mundane Mohammed V Boulevard lined with a plethora of shops and cafés. Life takes place here: The wind carries Arabian sounds and the aromas of grilled meat and patchouli incense. If people-watching is one of your vacation pastimes, feast your eyes on the locals at their card games and on the innumerable pots and pans filled with tasty mezze that makes your mouth water. Take a seat in one of the cafés and enjoy the unhurried goings-on, always with a view of the wide blue of the ocean, and the sound of bustling kitchens in your ear.
The New Medina, reconstructed with much love for detail, is home to an array of craft shops and boutiques. Take a day trip to the outback; you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of dreamy landscapes and surprisingly lush vegetation. To forget the frosty temperatures at home for one moment longer, visit Citrus Valley with its orange and olive plantations, mellow Saharan winds, and views of the impressive Anti-Atlas mountains. Too bad time passes so much more quickly when you are on vacation…
