For those of you who are seeking a bit of adventure, this might just be the activity for you. Spend a few hours riding along the hills of the hidden parts of the city. You will likely have an instructor that you have to follow, but feel free to be as adventurous or as reserved as you want. There will be countless photo opportunities when stationary and the chance to visually take in all that the city has to offer. Quad biking will only take a couple of hours out of your day. Do it in the morning when the air is crisp and fresh or do it in the evening when the sun is about to set. Either way, you will have a great time and still have the other half of the day to explore or complete another activity.
If you went to Morocco and did not ride a camel, did you really go to Morocco? Camel riding is without a doubt the most popular excursion across the country. When booking your holiday, chances are there were countless pop ups offering deals on the camel riding experience. Almost every tourist who has ever travelled to Agadir, has ridden a camel. You can book a private session or go along with a group of other tourists. It is a family friendly activity with two people being able to share one camel. Similar to quad biking, but without the adrenaline rush, you will be able to see all the sights of the city. Agadir has a rich history all of which you can enquire about with the instructor during the ride.
A traditional relaxation treatment for anyone looking for a detox on their holiday. The hammam spa includes a full body scrub, soaking, rinse and massage, making it one of the most popular spa choices across the world. While the practice originated in Arabia, it was popularised in Turkey and has now become common practice worldwide. Although you will enjoy all the adrenaline filled, physical activities that you will encounter on your holiday, it is important to take the opportunity to slow down and relax, even if it is only for a few hours.
Whenever we, as humans, travel or find ourselves in a new place, it is almost imperative that we make ourselves comfortable. Being aware of your surroundings via exploring is one way to do that. Going on a city tour is another. In 1960, a shock earthquake destroyed Agadir and it had to be rebuilt. The tour will take you from some of the highest mountains in the city to the most deprived areas, giving a full overview of the real Agadir. It is an experience not to be missed.
Stretching many miles along the coast lies the beach of Agadir. With clean sand and a blue sea, it is no wonder tourists and residents alike spend so much time there. Most of the tourist hotels are within walking distance of the beach, if not on the actual beach itself. There are many restaurants in the vicinity for when hunger strikes and a few bars as well. The beach is well separated into different sections. There are designated areas with deck chairs for those that want to sunbathe. There are areas for the young ones who want to lounge about or play football. There is even an area for the locals who are selling their products along the beach front. When the last day of your holiday is approaching and you are all worn out, a beach day is the perfect way to say goodbye to Agadir.
Travelling abroad can be both exciting and daunting. But some ideas, a good plan and a little bit of faith are all you need to ensure that your trip is a success.
