Things to do in Agadir
While most visitors come for the beaches, Agadir has a number of interesting historical sites waiting to be explored. The Kasbah is the most popular historical attraction; and the only real historical venue in Agadir proper. Dating back to the 16th century, the Kasbah offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Agadir's museums provide a cultural experience that will help you seek shade from the sun. The Amazigh and Agadir Memorial Museums are windows into the area's past.
Visitors looking for a day trip can travel to some of Agadir's neighbouring towns. Essaouira is just a couple hours away, and the 18th century seaside fortification is well-worth seeing. The UNESCO World Heritage Site offers postcard perfect pictures to visitors on a day out. Explore the city's narrow streets and check out the amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean from atop the fort.
Best beaches in Agadir
The beaches of Agadir are the main attractions, and the city's shores are perfect for a number of reasons. Agadir Beach is long and wide, providing plenty of sand to stretch out on. Taghazout Beach is a surfer's paradise and throughout the year draws experienced riders to its waves to hang 10. Even novice surfers can learn to ride at Taghazout.
The beaches are a top draw in winter as snowbirds from Europe flock to the shores. Agadir averages winter temperatures around 14C, and its waters are perfect for beach lovers seeking a chance to recharge in the sun.
Once you have had your fill of surf, sand and sun, head to the marina for a bite to eat and drinks to refuel. The marina and seafront are decked out with tantalising restaurants and a number of boutiques, providing a modern vibe to the city.
