Agadir, Morocco, Africa Cruise

    Agadir is a city in the southern part of Morocco. It is of interest primarily because of its location, as it is surrounded by the Antiatlas, the Sahara Desert, many natural parks, and secluded beaches which are all easily accessible from Agadir. The city of Agadir itself is primarily a tourist resort that is popular with European travelers. It has a beach with all the appropriate facilities for beach-tourism.
    This is the ancient Portuguese port of Santa Cruz du Cap de Gué, a fortress that was conquered in 1541 by Mohamed el-Mehdi, founder of the Saadian dynasty. The agricultural development undertaken by the Saadians was very successful, known as Agadir’s Golden Age. They had a flourishing trade in sugar cane, gold, olive oil, hides and spices. Agadir is the most important shipping port in Southern Morocco, but there are also beautiful sandy bays with year-round warm swimming water. It’s a very modern city, built with the tourist vacation in mind, a city which boasts a number of good hotels, restaurants, shops and a lively nightlife. It is the perfect base for excursions to Taroudant, Tafrefout and, if you stay several days, further afield into the Sahara Desert. A delightful spot for a quiet, warm holiday.
