Photos of Agadir in Morocco [Maroc]: Vacation Pictures Beach & Street Scenery

Here is a view of Agadir from the Kasbah, showing a somewhat warped view of the city, the beach and the port areas. I wasn't thinking of stitching the pictures when I took them and they must be at 2 different "zoom" settings. Well, you get the idea. Dry, hot and lots of sand. Agadir was almost totally destroyed by an earthquake in the 1960's and the city was moved a little bit south, from where the blank area near the road is. Consequently, there is very little "old" architecture.

Agadir is a popular vacation spot for Europeans and native Moroccans alike. There has been a steady build-up of hotels for the last few years that is still going on. I stayed at one of the big hotels called the Agadir Beach Club. It was a nice place to stay, but it is sad to see some of the hotels aggressively roping off the beach from public access. The writing on the cliff in the upper-right photo says, "God Country King". There is a nice "boardwalk" area at the north end of the beach towards the port.

I read somewhere that Agadir gets around 360 days per year with sunshine...it will probably be nice... Agadir is very much a tourist destination, but it is also a larger city and not quite as cute as Interlaken, Monterey, Newport, Rhode Island, Rockport, Massachusetts, Sedona, Arizona, etc.

There are still many new buildings going up, mostly hotels along the 10km beach, I think. You can see there is already a McDonald's.

The main souk (market) is on Thursdays; the zoo is open most all of the days.
