Agadir : Holiday Accommodation
Embodying a mix of old and new, local and Western, this popular fishing port has the appearance of a modern European holiday resort with a distinctive Moroccan flavour. Framed by the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains, it's Morocco's prime holiday resort and boasts a swathe of golden sandy beach. You'll discover a range of watersports, or you can saddle up and experience a bumpy camel ride along the shoreline. Agadir offers a fine array of restaurants and bar/cafes that fuse Berber, Arabic and Spanish cuisine. Visit one of the souks and you'll experience an explosion of colour, aroma and noise, and find all kinds of souvenirs from handwoven carpets to ornate jewels and brass (but make sure to haggle before you buy!) One of the few older buildings is the Kasbah, about 8kms from the centre, where you can enjoy fantastic views over the coast. Agadir is an excellent base to venture further afield to Marrakech, as well as the old walled city of Taroudannt or Paradise Valley.
