Agadir Beach Break
(05 Days / 04 Nights )
If you are looking for a beautiful unspoilt stretch of coast, Agadir is the perfect base. It is the place for sailing, surfing, galloping through the edges of the tide on horseback, scuba diving, parachuting over the sea… or just getting one of the best tans North Africa can offer. Agadir is close to the Canary Islands, and is Morocco’s show piece resort. Wide boulevards and gardens run deep into Agadir, and the golden sand beach that fringes the huge bay is of such a size that people sit together out of choice rather than necessity. Weary Atlantic waves collapse on the gently shelving bottom, making this a great place for padding children and extensive waster sports.
