Agadiris a Moroccan tourist city. It is located 520 km from the capital, Rabat, 509 km from Casablanca. The population of the city reached 844,421 in the 2014 census, and most of them speak the Amazigh language, which is one of the two official languages of Morocco. The city overlooks the Atlantic coast and is located at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, north of the mouth of the Souss Valley into the Atlantic Ocean. 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. However, the city speeds up on the waterfront, where Moroccan street life arrives with a refreshing sense of space. The sandy beach, arched south of the dazzling white marina, offers clean water and 300 days of sunshine a year.
Agadir caters primarily to package tourists and will be less attractive to independent travelers. Families will enjoy relaxing on the beach and strolling around a handful of sites. However, if you don’t have children in the trailer, we recommend going elsewhere to make the most of your visit to Morocco.
