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.

Agadir day trip to Essaouira

The tour was amazing and more than we expected. Mohamed was very king, we couldn’t have had a better guide than him. We saw so much in one day and took photos at beautiful huts along the way to take photos. Thanks.

Essaouira day trip from Agadir

Hassan immediately picked us up from our hotel and we were driven as a couple in a comfortable vehicle through the most incredible landscapes and landscapes on the way to Essaouira. Hassan is a great guide with good local knowledge, and there’s nothing he won’t try to help you with. The trip lasts 3 hours, so you should take the break suggested by Hassan and have a coffee or tea and use the bathroom. Upon reaching Essaouira, we were taken to the Medina and we walked. It was very informal and since it was just the two of us we really enjoyed it. I advise you to inform Hassan in advance what you would like to see and this will allow you to plan his visit at his convenience. The Medina has a variety of faces, some trendy and others quaint and restless. Choose wisely. We had lunch in a very good restaurant by the sea, where we ate fish that was very well cooked. We had to leave early as we had another engagement in Agadir, but this tour gives you the opportunity to continue towards the medina and the city after lunch. We would gladly make any visit with Hassan as he is laid back, friendly and knowledgeable.
