About Agadir

Agadir, Morocco

In the foothills of the Anti-Atlas Mountains lies Agadir. A coastal city, with miles of golden beaches for you to relax and enjoy during your vacation.

FlipKey has hundreds of Agadir homes and apartments for you to choose from. Some even have their own swimming pools! 

About Agadir

Agadir looks out across the Atlantic Ocean, and isn’t too far from Casablanca. The city was born anew after an earthquake struck in 1960, making it a modern and exciting destination for you to explore.

Not much is known about the ancient of history of Agadir. Though we do know that the Portuguese once founded a trading post and a fort there, these have since vanished and are considered a mystery by locals.

Agadir is now considered Morocco’s premier destination for sun and sand, though the city has lots to offer, too. This is the perfect spot for families, as you have all you need within walking distance. Especially if you pick a FlipKey property near the marina!

While you're there, definitely try some of the local food. It's delicious! Try tagine at the roadside cafes for a real taste of Morocco... Kefta is our favorite!

What to do

You must visit as many of the iconic beaches as possible. Relax on the sand, ride a camel or even try your hand at watersports! There is so much to do, that a week may not be enough!

Next, we suggest taking a stroll along the seafront promenade. You'll have a beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean, and a great selection of restaurants and street vendors to choose from.

Get your souvenirs and some tasty treats at the Souk El Had d'Agadir. Exotic and interesting shops line the winding streets of this busy marketplace. See if you can find something unique to take home with you.

A rare survivor of the 1960 earthquake, you must go visit the Kasbah - a relic of old Morocco. It was first built in 1541, and still stands offering superb views from the top of the hill. It's definitely not to be missed.

Top Agadir travel tips

There are several museums which you and the family can go and explore, but if you're looking for culture, Marrakesh might be your best bet.

Agadir is ideal for beach-lovers and families looking for a break from reality. Sound familiar?

You'll encounter a few street vendors while you're there, and haggling is the name of the game. Start your bid at half of what they ask for and keep going until they come to you!

The colorful spices at the souk aren't just for show – the food is infused with delicious flavors, though some find it a little spicy.

Agadir sees 300 days of sunshine a year, so there's not really a bad time to pick for your beach vacation. Use FlipKey to find your perfect vacation home and pack the sun lotion – it's going to be hot!
