Agadir is a real Moroccan gem - a modern, palm-lined holiday resort offering everything that a tourist could want, not least almost six miles of soft, golden sands, and plenty more besides.
Agadir hotels allow you to experience the traditional beach holiday with a difference. This destination has a uniquely Moroccan take on the usual tourist resort, and although it’s a fairly contemporary spot with every amenity you could wish for, there’s no mistaking that you’re in Morocco. You’ll detect the scent of ras el hanout in the air as you pass the local eateries and browse the stalls of the souk. You may well be invited to partake of a mint tea as you barter with a salesperson over the price of a souvenir, and you’ll hear the call to prayer from the Kasbah Mosque.
When it comes to accommodation options, you’re spoilt for choice. Cheap hotels in Agadir are often family-run establishments, typically riads, which are collections of rooms set around a central courtyard that’s ideal for eating, relaxing and socialising with other guests. If you want to be pampered in a spa, enjoy time relaxing by the pool and eating at delectable cuisine all without leaving your hotel, opt for one of the 5 star hotels in Agadir.
To pay most of your costs before you even leave for Agadir, all inclusive hotels are a great option. When you’re not basking on a fabulous beach, sampling the freshest barbecued fish or sipping a glass of chilled local wine, there are plenty of things to do near Agadir. Just a few miles from the city is La Medina d’Agadir, which offers a considerable 13 acres of stalls selling local crafts as well as museums. Don’t miss a trip uphill to the Kasbah - the views from this 16th century site are the city’s finest.
Souss-Massa National Park makes a very worthwhile day trip. This reserve is a great place to see exotic birds, including flamingos and ostriches. You might also spot wild gazelles and other fauna. A visit to Essaouira is a must if you love animals, as you’ll see the native tree-climbing goats hopping around from one tree to another, and at Paradise Gorge you can see magnificent waterfalls and an azure pool.
