Travel to Agadir

Go with Etihad Airways when you book your flights to Agadir and before long you’ll find yourself enjoying one of the top tourist destinations in Morocco. In a place where the beaches of the Atlantic blend seamlessly with the surrounding mountains, this dynamic city stands out with a flair for the contemporary yet remains rooted in tradition.

Top 5 Things To Do Agadir

  • Get lost in the narrow streets and walkways of La Medina d'Agadir, a museum in the form of an early Berber village surrounded by eucalyptus trees and sand dunes that have been meticulously reconstructed using traditional materials and techniques
  • Look around the Souk el Had, a market where you can experience a genuine Moroccan atmosphere and buy fresh fruits that come from the Souss Valley
  • Climb up to Kasbah, an old fortress in Agadir offering spectacular views of the city
  • Visit the Berber Museum, where you can discover the ancient Berber culture and admire its cherished treasures
  • Relax on the beach in Taghazout, a small fishing village located a few kilometres from Agadir

Plan Your Agadir Holiday

With Etihad Airways you can find flight deals to Agadir for very reasonable prices. The climate is mild throughout the year and it doesn’t lack for sun, but before booking tickets to Agadir keep in mind that the winter is not ideal for enjoying the beaches. You can, however, explore places like the Olhão Garden and Souss-Massa National Park.

If you choose to travel during the summer, you can dance to the rhythm of the Timitar Festival, which takes place in June and is ideal for learning about Berber music. This celebration attracts some 500,000 people; hence it is a good idea to make your reservations early if you want to find cheap hotels in Agadir.
