November in the Netherlands. In other words: grey, rainy, dark and cold. A warm destination like Morroco is very attractive to visit during this time of the year.
Morocco can be smoking hot in Summer, but Autumn, Winter, and Spring are perfect for a visit to Morocco. In winter, temperatures are still around 21 Degrees with clear blue skies. Sounds good for a winter sun destination right?
Exactly what I thought a few years ago. Together with my dad and his wife Bar we flew with Ryanair ( European Low-Costow Cost Airline ) from Niederrhein Weeze ( NRN ) in Germany to Agadir ( AGA ) in Morocco.
I stayed 8 days, and they stayed a week longer. A week was all I needed to boost my vitamin D, get a tan, relax, watched Dad having a typical Moroccan haircut and shave, and discover and learn about the people, culture, colors, and nature of Morocco.
What to do in Agadir, Morocco
→ Stroll around and shop, eat and drink
Agadir is the main tourist beach destination in Morocco with a seaside promenade lined with cafes, restaurants, bars, and boutiques. The buildings are all quite low build, which gives Agadir a cozy character.
→ Visit the Souk
Agadir has a massive souk with many market stalls where you can buy everything you can imagine. Make sure you bargain your prices down!
→ The Beach in Agadir
Great, wide sandy beach for hours of relaxation and chilling out.
What to do outside of Agadir, Morocco
If you want to know more about the real Moroccan culture and life, make sure you go inland and discover mountain Berber villages, souks, oasis, and historical buildings. Here are the two things I did outside of Agadir.
→ Jeep Safari and Visit Imouzzer
This was a great day tour to explore the real Morocco. We went with a 4 wheel drive of the beaten tracks, through mountains, villages, visited a Berber family, and explored the rough side of Morroco.
→ Visit the villages Tiout and Taroudant
Another great day tour which will show you to remote, dry and barren landscapes, wild camels and goats that stand on tree branches ( I am serious! – Can you spot the goat standing on a tree branch below? ↓ )
Tiout is a remote town located 90 km from Agadir and surrounded by palms in a natural oasis. With the Atlas Mountains in the background, it’s a beautiful little place.
Taroudant is a little city surrounded by old historical city walls with lovely markets full of spices, locals selling and making traditional things and lots of terracotta and earthy colors.
Where to stay in Agadir
Agadir has many hotels and apartments to choose from. Check them all out HERE.
We stayed in Hotel Anezi, a Hotel / Apartment complex, located close to the beach and center of Agadir. They have a great swimming pool, a nice garden, and terrace with great views of the ocean and Agadir.
At the top floor of Anezi is a bar where you can enjoy immaculate views over Agadir. A great accommodation for a stay in Agadir. For more info and prices CLICK HERE
