- Agadir Luxury holidays
If you like a destination to take your breath away on arrival, Agadir is the place for you. Its coastline on the Atlantic includes a curved beach of pristine sand some six miles long, and broad enough that it never feels crowded. Families and surfers share the space, as the swells of the Atlantic Ocean break against the shore - the epitome of a tranquil beach location.
Agadir - a well packed port
Like any port city, Agadir owes a lot to its seafood trade, and fresh fish are served up on a daily basis. It doesn't get much fresher than the food prepared alongside the Avenue du Port fish market, where there are several small restaurants cooking up whatever has been caught on the day. You might not even need to go into a restaurant to try some of Agadir's most famous cuisine, though; sardines are one of the most valuable commodities to pass through the port, and they are served up simply cooked from stalls close to the market, grilled to cook them through and to lock in the flavour of the hot flaky fish.
A camel's tale in Agadir
While there is a full schedule of cultural events in Agadir, several of these are particularly worth looking out for, especially if you want to experience the thrill of camel racing. This chaotic sport takes place at the Sahraoui Festival in June, along with warrior dancing and singing; and at the Moussem of Tan Tan in Goulimine in July, Tuareg Nomads come to trade, bringing their horses and their camels with them. Competitions inevitably follow, while the Nomads also barter with one another for various foods and goods, as part of a general celebration of their shared culture.
When should I visit Agadir?
Like the rest of Morocco's Atlantic coastline, the cooling breeze coming off of the waves brings moderation to the hottest summer days, and this can make the destination much more comfortable when the sun is beaming down. A day spent on the beach, listening to the crashing waves, with the sea breeze passing over you, can make a summer stay in Agadir one to remember. That being said, the climate remains quite moderate all year round, so if you want some winter warmth - and don't mind a slightly higher risk of rain - then there really is no bad time to visit Agadir.
