Quick Guide to Agadir
Not to be confused with unequivocally dreadful 80's classic 'Agadoo', the Moroccan city of Agadir is made of much more palatable stuff. The busy port town hugs the side of the captivating Atlas Mountain, lapped by a sprawling sea front and framed by a mysterious Kasbah fortress. It's also a veritable hotbed of spices, beach life and very reasonable prices. Tasty!
Now, we've got to be honest with you here - Agadir isn't the place to head if you're after an authentic taste of proper Moroccan culture. If you're looking for the Morocco of Bergman and Bogart, a Casablanca style labyrinth of snake charmers and smoky African mystery, you'd be best to head to Marrakech or, well, Casablanca. Agadir certainly has its charms, but it's most comfortable companion is probably the cheap 'n cheerful package holiday. This certainly makes it a great spot for a last minute getaway to the sun though!
