Popular tours and itineraries including Agadir & Southern Coast

Agadir & Southern Coast

Morocco's premier beach holiday resort and main fishing port, Agadir is a largely modern city. Rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1960, Agadir is the place to go if you want clean beaches and first-class tourist facilities. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Agadir competes with the Canary Islands as a winter destination for sun-starved Europeans. Miles of sandy beaches offer windsurfing, sailing and water-skiing, as well as some of the best seafood in Morocco.

To the north, the waves of Taghazoute are a draw for surfers from all over the world. To the south is the Soud Massa national park, a stopover point for migrating birds and the charming, seldom-visited coastal towns of Sidi Ifni and Merleft.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

Client review desert camp Sahara Morocco

Trip was big success with my daughter!

Hi Max
Thanks for reaching out…trip was big success with my daughter
However:
- driving was too long to the sand dunes from Ouarzazate ( 7h on the Saturday-9 on the Monday)- my fault…had forgotten how long drive through mountains/Draa valley is
- I got food poising ; was very sick ; luckily Dar Ahlam staff was very helpful upon arrival/that evening…may be ...

P.G.

The best dinner spot was at the riad hotel we were staying, Villa Maroc, where they serve huge platters of meat or fish tagine by candlelight.

Novelist Anna Stothard travelled to Essaouira with Lawrence of Morocco in August 2012, writing for the Observer Magazine.
