Dream holiday destination for beaches, wind and desert

Three hundred days of sunshine a year, beaches that stretch for miles and a year-round mild and dry climate make Agadir on Morocco’s southern Atlantic coast to a popular beach holiday destination. Agadir’s more than six-mile-long sandy beach boasts a beautiful promenade and is a magnet for sun worshippers, party animals and families alike.

Featuring mild swells and long, flat sections, Agadir Beach is particularly suitable for families with children. Water sports enthusiasts find a windy paradise not far from Agadir. Surfers cannot help but be drawn to Taghazout. The fishing village is situated a half-hour drive north of Agadir and rated as one of the best surf spots in North Africa. Meanwhile, golfers hit their ball on a golf course with stunning scenery - such as the Tazegzout golf course.
