Want to discover Agadir? There are a thousand and one ways to do so. Beauty coupled with light in front of the ocean, bordered by immense beaches of about 10km.
Here, the softness is that of fine sand and the caress of the sun; it’s a paradise all year round, 3 hours from the main European cities.
Agadir is an Amazigh city in south-west Morocco, located on the Atlantic coast in the Souss region, 508 km south of Casablanca, 173 km from Essaouira and 235 km west of Marrakech. With 900,000 inhabitants in 2012, it is located in a magnificent site and has an idyllic climate that will make you forget all your worries.
Lined by palm-fringed boulevards and with its sea-front bars, Agadir, Morocco's leading seaside resort, has a decidedly western atmosphere. Agadir is also the country's premier tourist hub, something disputed by Marrakech, as well as Morocco's number one fishing port.
Commercial activity is also booming there with the export of citrus fruit and vegetables produced in the fertile Souss Valley. It has an exceptional climate of more than 300 sunny days per year and its 10km long beach is more sheltered than many beaches on the Atlantic coast.
It is now the largest seaside resort in Morocco where tourists and foreign residents come in droves, attracted by a mild climate throughout the year.
Known for its white buildings hidden behind the dunes, its wide flower-filled boulevards, its modern hotels and European-style cafés, Agadir is no longer a typical city of traditional Morocco, but a modern, active and dynamic city, resolutely turned towards the future.
