If you're planning a trip to Agadir and you want to learn more about some Agadir attractions, then you have come to the right place. In the few paragraphs of this article, you will be provided with an overview of the places you can visit and the different things you can do to enjoy your stay in the city.

Agadir is considered by many to be Morocco's premier coastal resort. Its main attraction is its beach that stretches for around 8 km, and that is well known for its cleanliness and the beauty of its golden sands.

Top-quality four and five-star hotels service the beach of Agadir. It is patrolled by conspicuous police to keep hawkers and hustlers at bay and guarantee that sunbathers and swimmers can relax in peace and have a good time.

Along the Agadir bay, you will find all you need for the perfect beach holidays. If you are a sun worshipper, then you'll find miles of parasols and sun-loungers where you can lie back and soak up the sunbeams while reading your favourite novel.

Jet-skis and dune buggies for hire are available for the thrill-seekers and water sports enthusiasts. If you are the romantic type and you want to go strolling up and down the beach to enjoy a sunset or hunt for the perfect memorable photo opportunities, then you will also find camel rides and horse rides all along the beach.

Among the main Agadir tour attractions are the city's three Golf courses: "Agadir royal club," "Dunes golf club" and the "Golf du Soleil." The city also has many tennis clubs.

Agadir and cultural tourism:

Many Agadir visitors complain about the fact that they miss the authenticity of the real Moroccan culture during their stay in the city. Compared to other Moroccan cities like Marrakech or Fès, Agadir does not have much to offer its visitors in terms of cultural or historical attractions.

The reason is that, after the devastating earthquake that hit the Agadir in 1960, the city has been completely rebuilt to comply with world-class western standards and to be mainly a top tourist destination. However, If you want to discover some of the charms and the beauties of the local culture during your Agadir holidays, then there are a few places that you might want to visit.

Agadir Kasbah is the main symbol of the old city of Agadir. It is a fortress that lies on the top of a hill overlooking the entire city, the bay and the fishing port.

Agadir also has a few small museums displaying Berber artifacts, including furniture, jewelery, and costumes. The most visited museum in Agadir is the Bert Flint museum, but other smaller ones are less known as "The Musée des arts Bereberes" and the "Talborjt Museum."

Finally, if you want to shop for souvenirs, then the best place to go is the "Souk El Had." This little weekly market is one of the main Agadir attractions because it is the right place to shop for souvenirs and local Berber crafts at the best price.
