A popular beach resort, Agadir lies on the east coast of Morocco. With 10km of sandy beaches and around 300 days of glorious sunshine each year, it’s easy to see why Agadir attracts tourists looking for a healthy dose of sun, sea and sand. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1960, Agadir is very much a modern city. However, the oldest remnant of pre-earthquake Agadir is the 16th century Kasbah, offering incredible 360 degree views of the city. You can also get a sense of the past at the Musée du Patrimoine Amazigh, home to an impressive collection of Berber artefacts. For a dose of contemporary glamour, head to the new marina, where gleaming yachts bob alongside sleek boardwalk cafes and boutiques. If you’d rather be on the sea, rather than looking at it, consider hiring a catamaran and skipper for a cruise around the harbor. If all that sea air has worked up an appetite, join the locals at one of the fish stalls lining the port, or perhaps a plate of skewers under the shadow of the Loubnan mosque at Le Sésame. Plus, if you choose self-catering Agadir accommodation, you can also take full advantage of the gorgeous gourmet delights on offer at Souq al-Had. Here, stock up on gleaming piles of produce, which will not only save you money on dining out, but give a true taste of local Agadir life.
