Agadir, with its large 7 km long sandy beach and its 300 days of sunshine per year, attracts many tourists who come to spend their vacations with family or friends. Bordered by an endless line of hotels and residences of varying standards, the seafront has become a fashionable place on the Moroccan Atlantic coast where bathing, sunbathing and lazing around are the main distractions.
The city also has a 9-hole golf course and several tennis courts for sports enthusiasts. Those who prefer to be pampered and take care of themselves, will be able to benefit from all the treatments and massages offered in the hotels' spa and thalassotherapy center. For the cultural and authentic side, Agadir is not the ideal destination. The old Agadir is nothing but memories. It was razed by an earthquake in 1960. Rebuilt in a very concrete style, the city has lost its charm of yesteryear and will disappoint the purists. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
If you have the possibility of renting a car, go for a walk in the surroundings of Agadir to discover the small villages nestled in the mountains. The coastal road that serves Essaouira is one of the most beautiful of the Atlantic coast. Don't hesitate to go to Agadir out of season, when prices are more reasonable and the summer mists have disappeared in favor of a clear sun.
