The Moroccan city of Agadir, rebuilt from its ruins after the earthquake in 1960, is one of the most developed areas for visitors, with plenty of room for walking near the Atlantic, restaurants and entertainment, all blessed by the subtropical climate and its incredible beaches.
Agadir is a modern city running parallel to the coast, with three wide avenues covering the tourist area. It is a cosmopolitan and modern university city with good urban development, large buildings, important hotel chains, cafeterias and wide roads giving it a style of its own. It has a wide, modern seaside promenade, with plenty of restaurants and shops, which goes from the pleasure harbor to the new spa tourism area south, Cité Founty, the Royal Palace and Benzergho, a golfing area next to the river.
The beaches of Agadir are one of the most appealing features of the area. They are long, with fine golden sand, and feature benign, warm weather all year round because of the subtropical latitude. You’ll love the warm waters! Some beaches are sheltered by bays or reefs that tone down the force of the wind and the waves, making them calm and ideal for bathing. Others are more open to the ocean, with plenty of wind and large waves that are a delight for surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers.
The beach in the new part of the city of Agadir is surrounded by hotels, restaurants and cafeterias and stretches from the pleasure harbor to the new spa district known as Cité Founty, where the royal palace is located right by the mouth of the Souss River. The beach is clean, well-cared for and with all the services you need.
Agadir is an ideal base for getting to know the southern coast of Morocco and going on excursions in the surroundings. Whether you plan on soaking in the rays on the beach or are just looking for a perfect base for excursions, Agadir is the ideal destination for you.
