How to Spend 2 Days in Agadir
Two days in Agadir gives you time to take in the sights, relax at the beach, and sample local culture and cuisine. Book tours in advance to save time, fill your trip with fun activities, and splash out on one or two unforgettable experiences. Here are some ideas for how to spend two days in Agadir.
Day 1: Sights, Souks, and Sunsets
**Morning:**A city tour takes the hassle out of navigating and means you can fit all of Agadir’s sights into a morning. Visit the hilltop kasbah for an impressive view along the Atlantic coast, stop to see landmarks such as the Royal Palace and the Mohammed V Mosque, and stroll the atmospheric Talbourjt quarter with its historic buildings and traditional cafés.
**Afternoon:**The lively marketplace of Souk El Had d’Agadir is the place to purchase local handicrafts and souvenirs, as well as sample some of Morocco’s delicious street food. Shoppers can also combine a market tour with a visit to an argan-oil factory, to learn how Morocco’s famous argan oil is produced.
**Night:**A sunset camel ride is the perfect way to end the day. Mount up for a scenic trek along the banks of the Souss River, watch the sunset as you climb through the sand dunes, and look out for flamingos along the riverbank. For the full experience, combine your camel ride with a delicious barbecue dinner at a country ranch.
Day 2: Outdoor Adventures
**Morning:**Start the day with a romantic hot-air-balloon ride along the coast, watch the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains and Atlantic Ocean, then touch down to enjoy breakfast in a traditional Berber tent. Alternatively, set sail on a morning boat cruise and tuck into breakfast onboard as you glide along the beachfront.
**Afternoon:**Most travelers come to Agadir for the beaches, so plan to spend the rest of the day soaking up the sun and swimming in the warm Atlantic waters. Adventurous travelers can enjoy a host of fun activities, from Jet Skiing excursions to quad-bike tours (book in advance to avoid disappointment), but if you prefer to relax and unwind, combine a beach break with a visit to a traditional Moroccan hammam.
**Night:**Celebrate your final evening in Agadir by attending an evening show spotlighting traditional Berber culture. Feast on Moroccan tagine and sip mint tea as you enjoy live music, dancing, and performances by fire-eaters, belly dancers, and snake charmers.
