Things to do
If the beach seems a bit chilly in February, the winter months are a great time to go fishing. Anglers of all sorts will find something to please them. If you want to try your hand at sport fishing, the mild weather, calm seas and abundant sunshine offers a fun day-trip on the ocean for the whole family. There is freshwater fishing too. At Lake Ait Aadel, about 3 /12 hours by car, you can catch black bass, trout, perch and other game.
If you don’t want to fish but want to take a different sort of day trip, about two hours south of Agadir you can tour the famous prehistoric rock carvings in the town of Tiznit. You can get there by private cab for as little as $75 to include a private tour guide.
Coastline of Agadir
Hit the Beach
If you're holidaying in Agadir in February, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the excellent surf conditions the area is known for. For the novice or pro, trade winds and sheltered spots mean it's the ideal place to ride the waves.
Whilst you're on the coast, why not take advantage of the stunning scenery with a walk along the miles of golden sand that stretch out along the coastline. Agadir's beaches are a beautiful sight and, though it may still be a bit chilly to relax on them in your swim-wear, they're still well worth a visit.
There are miles of beaches along the Atlantic coastline of Morocco by Agadir. The beach by the resort itself extends for over 3km. The promenade, which borders the beach, extends a further 2km. You can bike or walk in the perfect February sunshine. Several locations offer bike rentals including many of the hotels.
The old lighthouse by Cape Ghir is one of the most picturesque beach locations in the area. Walking along the beach in the evening and watching the waves break over the rocks, this historic light house built in 1932 makes a great backdrop if you have a penchant for photography or painting.
Where to Eat & Drink
Just about any block in the city contains a variety of places to eat and drink. If you like fish and don’t want to pay premium prices, you can get a great meal for as little as $5 at the Fish Market. Choices are plentiful and the fish is always fresh.
If you don’t like fish, but also don’t want to spend a fortune, try the O Playa. A mixture of Moroccan, American and continental fare, the steaks are excellent. They are open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Nightlife goes on until the wee hours of the morning. Nightclubs like El Paradiso in the Hotel Argana in the heart of the tourist section of the city by the beach operate from dusk to dawn. If trendy is more your style, then the Flamingo has a large dance floor and plays the latest European music all night long.
Where to Stay
The entire region is dotted with many interesting places to stay. If you make the journey to Tiznit to see the prehistoric art and decide to spend the night, try the Dar El Janoub. Beautiful sea views from the rooms, lounge areas and fabulous pool, the hotel style is very Moroccan.
For a romantic get away with a very distinct local flavor try the Auberge Figue de Barbarie. Very rustic, isolated and located by an isolated beach, the service is good and makes a great getaway for couples wanting privacy and not concerned about amenities.
If you are looking for a family friendly, all inclusive hotel located in the center of the action, you can’t go wrong at the Club Med. Golf, tennis, and by the beach like all Club Meds the hotel is great for children.
