Why Choose to Holiday in Agadir
Agadir boasts access to a wide variety of geographical environments due to its location on the north-western coast of Africa. The city is blessed with over 10km of golden sanded beaches and turquoise warm waters, making it an ideal location for those wishing to experience a beach holiday like no other. Furthermore, the city is nestled at the foot of the Atlas mountain range, providing tourists to Agadir with opportunities for hiking and climbing. If this wasn’t enough, the proximity of the city to the Western Sahara affords tourists the chance of day trips (and longer) to the desert!
The stretch of coastline is occupied by numerous cafes, restaurants and bars as well as all the other amenities you would expect on a well-kept and much-loved beach. There are also plenty of opportunities for extra fun on the coast, as activities such as jet-skiing, quad biking, camel rides and even a little tourist train are available to beach-goers.
Nature lovers will also be enthralled by the possibility of visiting Agadir Birds Valley, a beautifully landscaped animal park with a focus on its large aviary. The park is populated with beautiful fountains, ponds, play areas and even a small petting zoo and offers free admission to visitors.
However, if you want to get out of Agadir and explore the surrounding region there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Many companies offer guided tours into the Atlas mountain range, and for the very adventurous, many even offer guided tours on camelback into the Sahara Desert.
Food, Drink & Nightlife
If you are looking to experience the local cuisine fully, then Sunshine.co.uk would recommend first trying a dish like Bastilla. Bastilla is similar to a savoury pie and is usually made with chicken that’s been stewed in saffron, ginger, cinnamon and pepper; it’s then layered within warqa pastry, which is incredibly crisp, alongside a herb-infused omelette and fried almonds soaked in orange flower water. If that sounds exciting to you, then you can find it in restaurants specialising in local cuisine such as Restaurant Daffy or Babakoul.
Agadir’s nightlife is also exciting and when the day-time temperature drops slightly in the evenings, the streets come to life. The nightclubs in Agadir are usually open all year round, and most offer free-entry. However, alcoholic drinks can be quite expensive, so be prepared when planning a night out! Clubs such as The Factory, Papa Guyos and Beach Club are some of the most popular venues in the city.
The primary currency in Morocco, and therefore Agadir, is the Moroccan Dirham. As exchange rates are known to fluctuate, Sunshine.co.uk would recommend beginning to look at exchanging Sterling to Dirham around a month before you are set to travel. This will give you ample time to shop around and make sure you are getting the best exchange rate possible.
The main spoken languages are Tashelhit, Moroccan Arabic and French, however as Agadir relies on its touristic economy, many people in the city speak English.
