Things to do in Agadir
Trek to the Kasbah, Agadir’s hilltop fort. Built in 1541, the Kasbah was one of the few buildings in the city that survived a devastating earthquake in 1960. Enjoy panoramic views of the Moroccan coastline while learning about the Kasbah’s intricate medieval Arabic architecture on a guided tour.
Immerse your senses in the sights, smells and sounds of Agadir’s Souk El Had. Wander through open-air produce markets, browse an enormous variety of spices and treat yourself to a cup of mint tea and a gazelle horn, a soft almond and cinnamon pastry with a hint of orange blossom water.
Enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the Argan Palace, Agadir’s immaculate hammam. Rinse away your troubles with warm water, clay body wraps and olive oil soap scrubs. Discover the luxury of your own private bath or relax with locals in the hammam’s traditional social setting.
Fancy a sip of Moroccan wine? Featuring exquisite seafood, an extensive wine list and friendly staff, Les Blancs mixes cosmopolitan dining with views of the sea from Agadir’s marina. Relish the coastal ambience from Les Blanc's open-air lounge while sampling a variety of tapas and paellas.
