Agadir in Morocco is a popular choice for many tourists because of it’s amazing stretches of beach and selection of top beach resorts. The area is mostly famous because of it’s golden beach that stretches along the clear blue waters, but there is so much more to see in Agadir. If you want to visit a beach destination on your tour of Morocco, consider Agadir.
Agadir is home to a Medina, which is an old town, where you can wander through the narrow lanes and explore some of the amazing architecture. There is also a small zoo with aviary and children’s playground when you want to get away from the beach for a while, not to mention the few small museums giving you a taste of the areas past.
Musee du Pathmoine Amazigh is the favored museum which houses a selection of Berber artifacts, while Memoire De’agadir is a smaller museum dedicated to the earthquake in 1960. There is also an impressive Kasbah located on the hill which was built in 1540.
