What to do and what to see in Agadir
- Kasbah in Agadir: Of this historical fortress erected to protect the city from Portuguese attacks only the ruins stand – and wonderful vistas of the sea. Since the fortress is a few kilometres from the town centre, the best way to get there is by car or taxi. For visitors in search for adventure, there are camel back tours.
- Jardim de Olhão: Located in the Talborjt district, this town garden in the Moorish style marks the twinning of Agadir with the Portuguese town of Olhão. It is a cool, relaxing spot in the heart of town, with shadowy trees that protect visitors from the sun. The garden features a restaurant where you can sit and have a refreshing drink.
- Boulevards in Agadir: The city has three main avenues with all the tourist facilities in the area: Avenue Hassan II, Avenue Mohammed V and Bd.20 Août. These boulevards are always lively and look very much like European districts. Tourists will find here everything they might need.
- Agadir Town Museum: Named ‘Bert Flint’ after the Danish historian who visited Morocco many times and even lived here, this town museum has numerous pieces, traditional costumes, musical instruments and decorative objects, jewels, weapons, and so on.
- Agadir Zoo & Aquarium: La vallée des Oiseaux (Valley of Birds) is a peculiar zoo and aquarium with exotic birds and native fish from the coast of Agadir. The zoo is close to the beach, on Bd. Mohammed V, and features manicured gardens. It is a great attraction for kids.
- Mohammed V Mosque: The mosque offers a display of beauty in the form of Arab art: tiles and decorated walls. It crowns the Avenue du President Kennedy and is the largest mosque in Agadir. It is closed to non-Muslims.
- Port of Agadir: Agadir has one of the main commercial and fishing ports of Morocco. The port is internationally known for its exports of citrus fruit and fish, especially locally caught sardines. At the port you can still see men building wooden fishing boats.
