Agadir is a city in the southwest of Morocco, located on the Atlantic coast, approximately 500 km from Casablanca and 230 km from Marrakesh.

This is one of the main urban centers of Morocco, the sixth largest city and the largest resort in Morocco (in 2004 according to a census, the city had a population of 680 000 inhabitants). Agadir is the second tourist destination in Morocco after Marrakesh with many restaurants, shops, entertainment and hotels within the city and on the seafront promenade facing the Bay of Agadir. This bay actually belongs to the Club of the most beautiful bays in the world.

Agadir is located in the rich plains of Souss which has an enormous potential in agriculture and has enabled the Saadian dynasty to ensure the golden age of Agadir during the XVII century. Back then, the city was known for the export of dates, waxes, spices and gold.

The city is also a good base to explore the countryside as it is the capital of the Souss Massa DraaRegion :Imouzzer, Tiznit, Taroudant, Tafraout, Mirleft… and discover the traditions of the Berber tribes. The word Agadir actually comes from the Berber dialect named tachelheet and it means « fortified granary ».
