The most beautiful beaches in Morocco are: North of Agadir entourage Taghazout village, dozens of clean, great beaches and smaller ones along the coast Agadir - Essaouira: Agadir beach, Tamaounza ( 12 km), Aitswal beach or Devils rock beach, Imouran (km 14), Taghazout (km 19), Bouyirdn (km 20), Timzguida (km 22), Aghroud (30 km), Imiouadar(27 km), Aghroud (30 km).
Agadir city has something unique: beautiful, golden, sandy beaches and the cool fresh morning air on the beaches. Vivacious and overlooked by the town along with the old ruin of " KASBAH" the natural beauty of the area is huge. It could be that is why it is a favorite holiday destination among tourists.

After the tragic earthquake in 1960 that hit Agadir, the city was rebuilt to be made better and more beautiful than it was preceding to the quake. It was the needs and wants of the tourists, more than any other element, that led to the beautiful rebuilding of the city to such an extent. The streets were extended, trees were planted and hotels were constructed between  the city and the beaches for tourists to retire into during the night after a cold and exhausting day in the burning but pleasant sun.

Agadir is not really Moroccan. Civilization and development hit Agadir turning it into a more technical and developed city, making the tradition and culture here disappear slowly over the ages. It is, what many people call, “universal”. Pretty easy place but not too different from home.

Honestly speaking, Agadir may not be very interesting or impressive, neither is it oriental. However, the beaches make it enjoyable all the same. Continuous sandy shores, with the breeze blowing into your face, the sweet smell of the sea and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, the birds twittering, the sun shining with all its might, the beaches of Agadir are sincerely unique. They’re different from any other beach you may have visited around the world. The very sight of the beach lets your soul loose and your heart beat harder and faster. You can actually feel your spirit escaping and the stress and tiredness of your body disappearing. It is a truly comfortable experience, a real change from the usual busy lifestyle you lead back at home, working day in and out, leaving no time for yourself, in paradise.

The vast, long, clean beaches stretch south-west, as far as your eye can see. A swim in the clean sea water helps relax your mind and body taking out all the pain and suffering you have gone through over the years, leading your busy lifestyle where nothing and no one is more important to you than profession and work.

In Agadir, the beaches are the most important tourist attraction. The atmosphere is simple, charming and comfortable.

A visit to Agadir can be one of the most pleasant and memorable experiences you’ve had in your life.

Everything that you would normally take to the beach: Sunscreen, Cap, and some warm clothes.
