Agadir is a Moroccan tourist city. It is located 520 km from the capital, Rabat, 509 km from Casablanca.

Agadir is the provincial capital of Agadir-Idautnan, a destination for Souss-Massa. The city was the scene of the Agadir Crisis of 1911 between France and Germany, which preceded the First World War.

With a bustling port and a complex of beaches stretching beneath its kasbah, Agadir was completely rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1960. It is today the country’s leading destination for sun, sand, water. pubs and pizzas. Laid out like a large network of downtown streets, surrounded by sprawling residential suburbs, Agadir’s concrete-clad interior neighborhoods are ugly and barren.

Agadir day trip to Sahara Desert reviews


Agadir day trip to Sahara desert

This tour exceeded our expectations as we hit a series of “must-sees” and the desert itself was breathtaking. However: – the four-star hotel at night was more like a one-star hotel. It didn’t affect us much because we didn’t spend a lot of time there. -The desert camp was nice, but we would have preferred to be further out in the desert.
