You don’t have to go far to find relaxation in a city where the sun shines 300 days a year. Enjoy the many sights in Agadir. TEST
Stroll along the promenade from the marina to Agadir Beach. On your way, stop for a cup of coffee or to admire the many shops, which you will be able to do in peace because apart from cyclists and pedestrians, the promenade is traffic-free. Laze on the beach until the sun goes down and see the promenade come to life as evening falls. This is Agadir at its best.
The Kasbah is the historical sight of Agadir. The ruins of this 15th-century fort are situated on a mountain and offer a breathtaking view over the city and the bay. Take a taxi to the top and walk back down. If you look carefully you will even see a Dutch inscription on the gates, in remembrance of the trade relations Holland had with Morocco.
If you want to surprise those back at home with an authentic souvenir, you will certainly find one at Souk El Had. With about 2,000 market stalls this is one of the largest market halls in Morocco. Sunday is the busiest day, people stream in from across the region to buy things or to sell their wares to the public. The Souk is open every day, except Mondays.
If you want to leave the city bustle behind, take a taxi to the harbour and ask the driver to drive you around the area. Discover Moroccan every day life in this special part of Agadir where boats are built and fish is traded. Tip: do not forget your passport, the police sometimes ask to see your ID at the entrance.
If you have already seen all the sights in during your citytrip in Agadir then it’s time to pamper yourself. As the name suggests, at Tiznine Argan you can buy argan oil and good-quality cosmetics. It is also the place for a wonderful massage, a visit to a Hammam, manicures, pedicures and facials. And all for a fraction of the price you pay back home.
