Weather Averages for Agadir in June
Averages for Agadir in June
June is very warm in Agadir as the tourist season gets into full swing. The average temperature during the day is a very warm and pleasant 20°C. The average high though now reaches 24°C during the day. The UV index climbs to 11, which is considered extreme. You will need generous amounts of sunscreen liberally applied every few hours to avoid sunburn and sunstroke. In the evenings the temperature only dips a few degrees below the average high to 16°C at the coolest. With the light breezes most won’t even require a jacket in the evenings.
June in Agadir has the most sunshine of any month of the year. The almost 14 hours of sun gives you plenty of time for the beach, pool and the plethora of outdoor activities the area offers. Morocco observes daylight savings time and June is the month when you move your clocks forward one hour. After the 18th of June the sun will rise at 5:30AM and still won’t set until close to 8PM. If you like to get in an early morning jog or swim before the sun gets up, you might want to consider going earlier in the month!
One day at most a month at most you might experience a very brief shower. A rainfall average of 2mm means precipitation is not something the traveller needs to fear in June in Agadir.
The average sea temperature is a very warm 20°C (that's about 68°F), so you can relax on Agadir Beach, top up your tan and take a dip in the sea. Wind speeds are very low at on average 6mph, so given the warm temperatures and plentiful sunshine beach life is wonderful.
Humidity won’t be an issue when outside in the evenings since the average dew point is 15°C which, while on the high end, is still within the comfort zone.
Things to do
For the more adventuresome there are dune buggy rides. Agadir Adventures offers ATV or quad tours all around the area. They also have Jet Ski excursions to cities and areas up and down the coast.
Tamazirt Excursions provides plenty of options for day trips. Mountain and desert private tours are specialities.
Tired of the beach and pools and want to try something different? A day trip to Paradise Valley offers waterfalls and natural pools for swimming. You can even try cliff jumping. The mountain scenery on the ride to and from the area is not what most expect to find so close to a beach side resort.

Situated along the South Atlantic coast you will find the Grande Mosque, one of the oldest in the country and built in the more traditional African-style architectural style. In nearby Dakhla you can also see the old Spanish Christian cathedral with its beautiful Spanish architecture.
Don’t miss the Taroudant City Walls if you are taking an excursion right in the centre of the Souss Valley.
Hit the Beach
Yoga on the beach is a popular attraction in Agadir. The Villa Mandala caters to yoga enthusiasts with beautiful outdoor gardens and its own beach and pool areas. Zen Surf Morocco along the Taghazout beach area also offers a beachfront access hotel for yoga aficionados. The spa facilities at Villa Mandala and Zen Surf are first rate too.
Like something even more unique? Try surf casting (surf fishing from the beach) on Dakhla beach. Located south of the city on a small peninsula abutting the Sahara Desert, this is a popular pastime for locals and tourists alike. The city of Dakhla provides plenty of restaurants and cafes when you take a break from the surf. Kite surfing provides great sport. The Dakhla Spirit Surf House has not only accommodations but certified instructors and all the equipment on site.
Where to Eat & Drink
If you need some ice cream to cool down then go to Ice Vahine. The ice cream is homemade and and has plenty of delicious flavours to chosse from. A firm favourite with the children – unsurprisingly!
Craving some Mexican food? Try Taco Loco. This popular haunt doubles as a great place to have a beer at the bar and just hang out. Don't miss the tasty tacos.
Fish is a stable of local and tourist diets in Agadir. The Laayoune near Tagharte beach north of Agadir serves excellently prepared seafood dishes and the prices for a three course meal won’t break your budget.
Nightclubs become the centre of fun for singles and young couples once the sun sets. One of the biggest dance parties each night can be found at the Factors and Actors. Catering to the younger crowd, it is one of the most popular nightclubs in town.
One of the most consistently highly rated places for dinner is the Quartier d’ete where you can enjoy a fusion of French and Moroccan cooking. Located 12 miles north of the city it is worth the cab ride for the great dining experience.
Where to Stay
If you are addicted to surf casting and want to stay close by the Dakhla rather than the Agadir beach area, then try the Tahiti Hotel. Another great choice by Dakhla is the Dar Rio Oro with great views of the surf from many of the rooms.
Surf Berbere has great apartments, an informal atmosphere and is right by the ocean. The Strand-Surfwohnung by Taghazout beach is a European style bed and breakfast with many of the apartment balconies overlooking the coast.
The Riad Foutour is an authentic Moroccan style bed and breakfast along the coast just north of Agadir city. There is even an on-site carpet store.

If you don’t want to search for a dinner or lunch locale daily, then try the all-inclusive Best Western right near both the beach and city centre.
