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.
