To get a taste of the hustle and bustle of old Agadir, head down to the port where you can watch the fishermen bring in the daily catch, head out to the souk and do a spot of bartering, or trek up to the remains of the 16th-century Kasbah and take in the spectacular sights of the bay.
Agadir’s top attraction is the six mile crescent shaped beach, soak up the sun, splash in the surf and enjoy!
Speaking of surf - there are many places in Agadir that are well suited for surfing, a few examples are Devils rock, Imesouane bay and Ankhor point. If you are interested in learning to surf there are a number of schools and camps to help you get started.
Built in 1540, all that remains of the old Kasbah are the fortified walls, however, the trip up the hill to this historic site is worth it for the view alone.
Engraved into the hill in Arabic are the words God, King and Country. The Moroccans are prohibited to speak anything bad about any of these three things. If you are interested in history you can easily find a professional guide here to take you on a tour.
Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Agadir’s walled souk and get ready to barter for your souvenirs! A "souk" is a term of a central, local market in an Arabic city selling spices, textiles and jewellery.
If you take a taxi to the Souk al-Had you should ask for it by name, since some taxi drivers take you to their own personal souk. You recognize the real souk by its ochre wall and the numbered gates.
