Agadir Travel Guide

by our Morocco expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryAgadir - well restored after the 1960 earthquake devastation - is probably Morocco’s best known ‘beach vacation’ town, with the outskirts village of Taghazout being a prime location. On the Atlantic coast, it grew out of, and still is, an important fishing port with fresh sardines a local gastronomic delight. The pre-1st World War ‘Agadir Crisis’ allowed France and Spain to occupy Morocco as a colony, with independence ceded only in 1956. With temperature in the low 20’s C during Dec-Mar, Agadir is a rightly popular ‘winter sun’ destination for people of the northern hemisphere. At times, the principal beaches can be crowded but with long stretches of nearby attractive coastline, it’s not hard to break clear if that bothers you. More modern than traditional, the city is not unattractive and even unusually boasts a recently-built medina.
