The city of Agadir is located along the west coast and is the capital of the Sous Massa region. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Agadir is a modern and appreciated city above all for its beach, more than 10 kilometres long, its relaxed atmosphere and the great hospitality of its citizens.
The sand, the sea and the sun make this city, rebuilt and redeveloped almost entirely after the strong earthquake which destroyed it in 1960, a magnificent, green and luxurious seaside resort. Its sandy shores, town and dozens of hotels are a major tourist attraction for the many visitors from Europe and elsewhere during the winter months. The city is surrounded by residential areas, but the real attraction is the waterfront: the long sandy beach is bathed in crystal clear water and the sun shines almost year round.
Known for its white buildings hidden behind the dunes, its wide flowery avenues, its modern hotels and its European-style cafés, Agadir is no longer a typically traditional Moroccan city, but a modern, lively and dynamic city, resolutely turned towards the future.
Agadir is the leading fishing port in Morocco.
If you are considering Agadir as a holiday destination, take advantage of the many day trips that will allow you to discover the beautiful surrounding villages. In addition, 7 kilometres north of the centre you will find the Kasbah, built in 1541 and partially surviving the earthquake, from where you can enjoy magnificent views.
