Photo Friday: Agadir – tree climbing goats and beautiful beaches!

If you fancy a break that makes you feel like you’re a million miles away from the UK, then Agadir is the destination for you. It boasts warm weather, sun-soaked beaches and a scenic mountain range, as well as a rich local culture and out-of-this-world food. Here’s a peek at the best bits of this Moroccan marvel:

The Atlas Mountains

There are plenty of day trips from Agadir to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. You can all hop in a 4×4 and, before you know it, you’re at one of the most picturesque places in the world.

Beautiful beaches

If you like nothing more than a blissful beach, then you’ll love the Riviera-style Agadir. There are plenty of spots by the blue sea to get some sun, practice your volleyball skills or simply have a snooze under a beach umbrella.

The fishing port

For a taste of local culture, head down to the fishing port, where you can pick up a bargain on sea-fresh shellfish, eat out or just take in the sights and sounds of the busy scene. Definitely a place to bring your camera too.

View from the Kasbah

Take a trip to the old Kasbah and you can look down on Agadir from way up high. Time it right and you can also watch the sun setting from these historic and atmospheric ruins.

Souk El Had

You’ll want to pick up some bargains to bring home, and if it’s traditional trinkets you’re after, then Souk El Had is the place to go. Prepare to haggle (or at least chat) to get stunning local crafts at sensible prices.

See the tree-climbing goats!

Take a tour to the nearby ‘Mini Marrakech’ of Taroudan and you’ll have the chance to explore the sights of the city before a stop-off to see the amazing tree-climbing goats.

There’s more to Morocco than Marrakech. Monarch fly to Agadir from Manchester this summer.
