Holidays to Agadir
Agadir holidays are a unique blend of Moroccan spice and European chic. An Agadir holiday offers soft golden beaches to rival any in the Mediterranean. Away from the beach you will find a lively mix of east and west; belly dancing shows, Berber restaurants and bazaars, or Riviera-style casinos, clubs and restaurants. We at Coop Travel have bargain holidays to Agadir that will show you the very best this exotic city has to offer.
If you want a Moroccan beach destination where you can lounge in the sun by day and party all night, then Agadir is the place to come. Last minute holidays to Agadir offer a traditional taste of Morocco too. Behind the chic palm-fringed boulevards, Riviera beaches and modern hotels of the waterfront you will find mosques, Moroccan restaurants and the largest souk in Morocco, where you can buy anything from exotic spices to hand-stitched djellabas.
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, 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 the glittering Blue Flag beaches. Sweeping round a wide bay for over 9 km, they offer a diverse range of watersports, 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 attractions.
Late deals to Agadir also offer excursions to the ancient walled city of Taroudant, and camel treks into the Sahara Desert – a favourite with children. We at Coop Travel have Agadir package holidays in a variety of family-friendly locations.
