Agadir, Morocco Luxury Cruises

Located on the West Coast of Morocco, Agadir is a modern city boasting wonderful beaches and parks, situated close to the Sahara Desert. It’s a unique and interesting destination, with most buildings featuring 1960s and 1970s architecture. The city centre is flat, clean and well-maintained, whilst the beaches are ideal for sunbathing and surfing. If your shore excursion extends into the night, then you’ll find that the city’s bars and nightclubs offer an opportunity to unwind after a day spent touring the city or testing your skills on one of the excellent local golf courses.

Sightseeing in Agadir

Agadir suffered the effects of a 1960 earthquake, and was repaired and rebuilt over the following two decades. Now continuing to be modernised, the city features a number of buildings that were designed in the 1960s to futuristic specifications. As with most predictions about the future, these architectural designs never became the widespread reality. The result is a city that’s quirky, and unlike any other in Morocco. The dry, hot weather makes Agadir an ideal place to relax on the beach, or enjoy a lazy day without organised tours and events, though you’ll find that the city’s attractions are as varied as the tourists that visit.

La Vallée des Oiseaux

This small animal park is completely free to enter. You’ll find a selection of birds and mammals, and might have the opportunity to feed them during your visit. It’s not an attraction that will fill a whole day, but is one that you can enjoy as an alternative to the beach.

Museum Municipal du Patrimoine Amazigh

This museum has a small collection of artefacts, offering an insight into the 18th and 19th century life of the Berber people. Items include clothing, jewellery, crafts and musical instruments.


Agadir’s beaches are dotted with surf schools, and there are dozens of sheltered bays where the waves are particularly high. Surfing is one of the most popular activities for locals and tourists, and a short lesson is the perfect way to learn a new skill before returning to your cruise ship.

Shopping in Agadir

Your Agadir shopping experience would be incomplete if it didn’t include a visit to Souk El Had. The market has more than 3,000 stalls, with independent traders selling everything from food and household items to antiques, collectables, clothing and accessories. You’ll find hand-crafted items, leather goods and all sorts of unique items that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. Moroccan crafts include traditional footwear, glass and ceramic items. Oils, herbs and spices are also popular purchases. Meanwhile, if you prefer luxury items then you’ll find designer boutiques close to the marina, where you can instead spend your money on top brand clothes and accessories.

Eating out in Agadir

As in the UK, restaurants in Agadir serve cuisine from all over the world. You’ll find Italian restaurants and pizzerias, grill restaurants, Japanese and Thai restaurants, gourmet restaurants, seafood restaurants, fast food eateries and cafes, all with extensive and varied menus. Street vendors and beach sellers, offer up a selection of lighter options and snacks. These include snails, soups, grilled corn and sweet pastries that are similar to doughnuts. Make an effort to find a vendor selling one of these pastries if you’re looking for a unique snack that you might not find anywhere else on your travels.
