Lined by boulevards dotted with palm trees and bars on the seafront. Agadir, the first seaside resort of Morocco, has a decidedly very western atmosphere. Agadir is also the first tourist hub of the country, place sometimes disputed by Marrakech, and the first fishing port of Morocco. Commercial activity is also booming with the export of citrus fruits and vegetables produced in the fertile Souss valley.
Its exceptional climate, more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and has a 10 km long beach,. It is now the biggest seaside resort of Morocco, where tourists and foreign residents come, attracted by a mild climate throughout the year.
Known for its white buildings hidden behind the dunes, its wide flowered boulevards, modern hotels and European-style cafés, Agadir is no longer a typical city of traditional Morocco, but it is a modern, active and dynamic city, resolutely Forward-looking.
With a busy port and beach resort sprawling beneath its kasbah, Agadir was completely rebuilt following a devastating earthquake in 1960. It is now the country’s premier destination for sun, sand, pubs and pizza. Laid out as a large grid of downtown streets, surrounded by spacious residential suburbs, Agadir’s
concrete-covered inland quarters are ugly and sterile. However, the city hits its stride on the beachfront promenade, where Moroccan street life comes with a refreshing sense of space. Arching south of the shiny white marina, the sandy beach offers clean water and 300 sunny days a year.
