Just north of the Agadir city in Taghzout lots of hotel choices are also available for booking.

Another Taghzout beach area choice closer to the shoreline is Home Location. This facility rents apartments with full size kitchens and from many of them you can walk from the back door right to the beach.

Things to do
The village of Igherm is not too far from Agadir and on the way to the mountains. There is a nice example there of the unique architecture associated with Berber granaries. These granaries have been built the same way since ancient times. The views too of the High Atlas range from the city are spectacular.
If you want to learn to cook Moroccan style then try the L’Atelier Madada just north of Agadir in Essaouira along the coast. Highly rated, you can learn the art of cooking couscous as well as baking the very sweet Moroccan pastries.
Nearby you can experience camel or horseback riding at the Zouina Chevel. They offer overnight camping treks for the whole family following trails along the coast or inland.
If you want to extend your visit and study French or Arabic, there are various courses offered at the Alliance Franco Marocain. The school also hosts cultural exhibits and events that are open to the public.
Hit the Beach
If you are looking for almost guaranteed privacy this time of year, then head north of the Agadir and Taghazout beach areas to historic El Jadida. The beaches are crowded during the summer months but in September you could find yourself completely alone with a beach to yourself.
Another quaint and very private beach spot is anywhere on one of the scenic beaches by Oulidia. Close to El Jadida, the beaches are pristine, clean, and with September being the start of the off-season you are sure to find a nice quiet romantic spot if you so desire.
You will not have to worry about running back to Agadir for supplies. El Jadida and Oulidia both have plenty of restaurants, fishing areas, and sports equipment rental shops.
Where to Eat and Drink
La Truite Irish Bar offers all the comforts of home. With a sports bar atmosphere, the kitchen offers a solid English breakfast in the morning and there is always lots of soccer playing on the wide screen TVs. Another place for breakfast or coffee is the Orange Café in city central a few blocks from the main beach.
If you want to try a breakfast café where the locals hang out, try the Patisserie Hassan. Hassan’s offers local or European style coffee and pastries in the early mornings.
For dinner, La P’tit Dome has good food, outdoor seating, reasonable prices and even a children’s menu. You will find this spot within sight of Agadir beach on the Harbor end of the corniche.
La Blancs by the entrance to the marina is a very popular place with seafood and fish dinners. You will have to call ahead if you want a table on the patio. The beach views are fabulous.
