Make Memories in Agadir
Agadir is a popular destination for beach lovers in Morocco. With a number of popular branded hotels, lining the softy sandy beach where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, Agadir is a great choice for family holidays. In 1960, the city was hit by an earthquake which caused a lot of damage, with much of the city having to be completely rebuilt. As a result the city doesn’t have the same historic feel to it, that Marrakesh or Essaouira do.
Agadir is known for its year round sunshine. The best months to travel are between June – September, with highs of 30 degrees & little chance of rain. Winters are still warm with highs of 20 degrees. November– March is warm reaching 20 degrees in the daytime but chilly at night. Perfect for a quick escape from the British weather. Easter holidays are a good time to get away for a bit of warmth and sunshine. Whilst October half terms usually offer the best weather for sightseeing & value for family breaks, reaching a pleasant 27 degrees centigrade most days.
TOP TIP> During winter months, outdoor pools are often too cold to swim in. There are a few places which offer indoor pools or outdoor heated pools. But cooler weather does make it a lot easier to explore the sites.

Easyjet, TUI & Ryanair fly to Marrakech departing from many local airports in UK, including London Luton, Birmingham & Manchester. AirArabia has also launched new routes to Morocco too. Flights usually offer good value however always check what time the flight departs. A 6 am flight with young children means reaching the airport at 4 am, with sleepy children to navigate through security & boarding.
TOP TIP> Why not fly into Marrakesh & out from Agadir ? We spent £1500 less last Summer by doing just that. The bonus was getting to stay in 2 amazing Moroccan cities not just one. For example, fly from Manchester with AirArabia to Agadir & fly back with Easyjet from Marrakech.
You can also fly into Marrakesh & take a Suprabus coach to Agadir for around £12 per person. Alternatively, you can book a private taxi transfer. We have used this company Marrakech Ariport Transfers, in the past>
