This vibrant port city on Morocco’s Atlantic coast
Is the place to come for a hassle-free beach holiday that’s as laid-back or full-on as you are. While Agadir Bay, in all its 5-and-a-half-mile glory, has enough for planeloads of sand-loving sun-worshippers, the town itself is a modern, bustling, and at times chaotic way to explore the contemporary face of North Africa.

Travel just a few miles from the centre of town and you’ll find Agadir’s new Medina, built to replace the ancient Medina which was destroyed in a devastating earthquake in the 1950s. Here you’ll find a warren of tiny workshops, where skilled artisans create all manner of local handicrafts.
Must eat at:
For a funky, laid-back vibe and an intoxicating fusion of North African and Mediterranean cuisine, Le Mauresque Lounge is hard to beat. It’s near the beach, too, making it just a short hop from most of the main resorts.
Must be there for:
The annual Timitar Festival, held every July, brings together performers and musicians (not to mention 800,000 fans) from across the musical and cultural divide, fusing the ancient and modern.
Considering you’re so close to the Sahara, it’s easier than you think to connect with nature – take a trip to the Oued Massa Nature Reserve to spot flock upon flock of rare birds.
If you’re up for a different perspective on the beach scene, you can take a trip along it by camel. Hiring your own ‘ship of the desert’ will cost around £15 for two hours.
