Agadir package holidays are an intoxicating blend of Arabian and European influences – tinged with tragedy and triumph. Originally a small Moroccan fishing port, Agadir became a Portuguese trading post in the 16th century, later coming under French rule. It has twice been destroyed by earthquakes – the second, in 1960, resulted in the city being rebuilt from scratch just 8 miles from the earthquake’s epicentre. Those booking cheap Agadir holidays today should take a camel trek to the16th century Kasbah, or citadel – one of the few remnants of old Agadir left standing.
The main reason for booking last minute Agadir holidays is its glittering Blue Flag beaches. Sweeping round a wide bay for over 9 km, they offer a diverse range of water-sports, while further from the town are rocky coves and dunes to explore. Massa Lagoon, Morocco’s most important bird reserve, is just one of the local natural holiday attractions.
