Useful city facts
- Located on the Atlantic coast near the Sahara, Agadir has a hot semi-arid climate with maritime influences. The summers are very hot, although cooler than in many inland cities, with the average high temperature reaching 26°C (79°F) in September. Winters are short and mild, with an average high of 20°C (69°F) in January, the coolest month. If the wind permits, surfing is possible at any time of the year. The precipitation is practically nonexistent from May all the way to September but experiences an increase from November to February.
- The main daily language used in Agadir is Shilha Amazigh, one of the Berber languages of North Africa. Part of the Afro-Asiatic family, Berber languages are only remotely related to the Arabic and they are not mutually understandable. Knowledge of Arabic and French is very high in Agadir. The knowledge of English is lower, although people working in the tourism industry will usually know at least some basic phrases. Some inhabitants of Agadir also speak Spanish.
- Although the Southern coast of Morocco has been inhabited since antiquity, very little is known about Agadir before the 14th century when it was first mentioned in a map. Over the following five centuries, the city was ruled by a number of sultans, dynasties, and colonial powers before becoming a part of the unified Kingdom of Morocco.
Top destinations and activities
- Kasbah. Built in the 16th century in the oldest district of the city, Kasbah is an important place to visit not only because it is one of the few buildings in the city that has survived throughout centuries, but also an important example of medieval Arabic architecture. Being built on a hilltop, it also offers impressive views of the rest of the city.
- Agadir Medina. Made in 1992 using traditional building techniques, it is a recreation of the city’s old medina that was destroyed by an earthquake. Architecturally beautiful, it is also a place where you can learn about local Berber culture.
- Souk El Had. The largest souk, or market, in Agadir, El Had is a great place to practice your bargaining skills as you can purchase everything from fruits, vegetables, and spices, to Berber clothing, pottery, and musical instruments. Even if you don’t want to buy anything, this is a great place to feel the local atmosphere.
Traffic and parking tips
- Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h on highway (autoroutes), 100 km/h on roads outside urban areas that are not highways, and 60 km/h within populated areas.
- Even inside some big cities, and in the most smaller towns and villages, there are no special lanes for cyclists or sometimes even sidewalks for pedestrians. In those cases, you’ll be sharing a road with them, so be extra careful.
- Road signs are written in both Arabic and French. If you don’t know either of these languages, it’s good to learn at least the main terms in one of them before renting a car.
- The legal alcohol limit is 0.00% for both experienced and novice drivers. Drunk driving can lead to large fines and even jail time or deportation.
- The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
- If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
- The nation-wide emergency police number is 19 and the nation-wide ambulance and fire safety department number is 15.
A toll needs to be paid for using most of Morocco’s motorways or autoroutes. All of the toll roads in Morocco are administered by the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM).
Morocco uses a “closed system” for its toll roads, meaning that there is a toll booth both at the entrance and the exit of the toll road. You pay either by cash or by credit card (although some toll points might only accept cash so it’s good to have some available at all times). Make sure to keep any proof that you have paid for the toll road as police checks are frequent and fines can be hefty. The prices for using the toll roads are generally quite low.
Most of the toll roads connect the largest cities of the country. Oftentimes you can opt to use regional roads instead - while traveling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.
Ideas for a day-trip
- Taghazout. A small and cozy fishing village it may be, but Taghazout is a real giant when it comes to surfing. One of the most popular spots on the whole long coast on Morocco, Taghazout offers everything from surf schools for beginners to awesome waves for pros, and even tranquil camel rides along the beach if hitting the waves is not exactly your thing.
- Paradise Valley. A place of special calm, this beautiful valley made up of natural swimming pools, impressive rocks, and small waterfalls more than justifies its name. It is located where the Atlas Mountains begin, and you can spend a full day here going on walks or finding a perfect spot and having a long picnic. Upon exiting the valley, make sure to make a stop at one of the small villages where you can enjoy delicious local cuisine and tea.
- Crocoparc. Located just a 20-minute ride from downtown and founded as a conversation project, the Agadir Crocodile Park is a beautiful green place that’s home to 325 Nile crocodiles, at least some of whom are full six meters (20 feet) long.
Most popular rental types and cars
The most popular rental car type in Morocco is an Economy, followed by Mini and Intermediate. Most national highways are in great shape, but if you plan to drive in mountains or desert, getting a 4x4 vehicle can be a good idea. The most popular rental car in Morocco is the Hyundai i10, although travelers also love the Dacia Logan and the Renault Clio.
- Essaouira. Favored by Berber kings and rock stars like Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles alike, Essaouira is a beautiful coastal town a couple of hours drive north of Agadir. Although windier and rainier, what it lacks in weather it more than makes up in the atmosphere, beautiful Moroccan architecture, and delicious seafood.
- Marrakesh. Although Baghdad, Beirut, or Alexandria might argue, Marrakesh is perhaps the most famous ancient city of the Arab world. If you’ve come to Morocco at all, its sights, gardens, and souks are not to be missed.
- Ouarzazate. Located high in the Atlas Mountains and serving as an entry point for the Sahara Desert, Ouarzazate is more traditional than many other famous cities of Morocco. Famous for its stunning Kasbahs, unique desert plants, and the fortified village of Aït Benhaddou, it feels like no other place.
