While looking at Agadir's spacious residential neighbourhoods, beachfront promenade, and wandering holidaymakers, it is hard to believe that the city was devastated by an earthquake in 1960. Today, it is greatly in demand among many of the European tourists who wish to escape the harsh winters of their home country and laze around in the sun-kissed environs of this Moroccan city. On the surface, it appears as if the city doesn't have much to offer for tourists. However, there are quite a few interesting things to be seen and done while holidaying in this city that’s often described by tourism promoters as one of the pearls of Morocco:

Unwind on the beach

When you get to Agadir's enchanting and serene beach, you'd certainly be tempted to relax amidst vast stretches of fine sands and a tranquil atmosphere that prevails in its surroundings. If you've visited the Essaouira beach nearby, you'd certainly be pleased upon visiting the beach of Agadir as it is not hit by the incessant Atlantic winds. Instead, what you get upon visiting this beach is a clean and well-maintained stretch of sands and the presence of trained lifeguards.

Try Some Angling

While holidaying in Agadir, you'll always find a fisherman trying to catch fish as you begin exploring its coast. If you are interested in angling, they can be of immense help and you can catch some good fish yourself with some assistance from them. You can get some prawns from the local market and use them as baits while attempting to catch the fish. If you have developed quite a few skills in angling, you can expect a good catch of eels.

Spend a day at Crocoparc

The Crocoparc in Agadir was initially started as a conservation project. However, this impressive crocodile park is home to many generations of Nile crocodiles today, which wander about in their large enclosures. The entire place is beautiful, well-maintained and vast in order to ensure that the Nile crocodiles have enough space for their movements as they can grow up to 6 metres in length. If you are travelling with children, they'll have a wonderful time watching all the crocs from a safe vantage point.

Enjoy the views from Agadir’s promenade

The promenade of Agadir is a delight for people who love to take a stroll along the seafront. Over the years, it has become one of the city's most prestigious and inviting places. It was opened in the year 2007 and comprises of some elegant neighbourhoods, such as the OuedSouss Avenue, Palm Bay, and Tawada Avenue. Whether it is evening or daytime, this particular place is thronged by locals and tourists alike. Some of the sports enthusiasts can also be seen practising beach volleyball on the beachside areas. If you wish to unwind with your favourite drink, there are some trendy coffee shops, hotels, and restaurants to choose from.
