Agadir Morocco “Pearl of the South” or “White City by the Sea”. Climatically spoiled, located in a wide bay with a wide sandy beach, the fertile Sous plain as the hinterland, against the backdrop of the foothills of the High Atlas, is an ideal starting point to discover and love Morocco to learn.
Morocco’s southwest is a region of sharp contrasts: worlds lie between the modern seaside resort and the interior, with its mud-walled – seemingly untouched by time – trading cities, the archaic structures of lonely mountain hamlets and dim souk alleys.
In 1962, the reconstruction of Agadir began as a seaside resort. Today Agadir is a tourist center with many hotels, restaurants, and leisure facilities.
The Boulevard Hassan II and the Boulevard Mohammed V, the two main thoroughfares, are lined with palm trees on both sides. Agadir, with over 25,000 hotel beds, is by far the largest tourist center in the country.
A large part of the population lives from tourism. The fish processing industry, the port, which is one of the most heavily handled in the country, and the cement works in the north-west of the city are also important.

Morocco offers a great climatic variety due to its long coast to the Atlantic Ocean and its mountain ranges that act as a climatic divide. The Atlantic coast has a mild, maritime climate all year round with only slightly fluctuating daytime temperatures. During the summer months, high fog can form in the coastal region in the mornings.

We have recently been able to offer charter flights from Morocco to Europe.
For example from Agadir to Frankfurt or Marrakech to Paris.
Of course, you can also book scheduled flights. However, charter flights are more interesting.
Sometimes these cost half of a scheduled flight.
For example, you can fly to Frankfurt with Condor from 230 euros per person.
Agadir – Entry requirements
Germans, Austrians, and Swiss do not need a visa to stay in Morocco for up to 3 months. Upon entry, the passport must be valid for 6 months. Drivers need the green insurance card marked “Valid for Morocco”.
When you enter Morocco (if you have not yet been to Morocco in the same year), you will receive a six-month customs permit for your car. Since your personal residence permit (stamp in your passport) is only valid for 3 months, you should arrange for an extension in good time if you want to stay in the country for longer than 3 months.
We recommend that you contact a police station (for example the Essaouira police station), where this is usually possible without any problems. The often proposed solution of leaving Morocco for a few days in order to return with a new residence permit is more cumbersome and can lead to unforeseen problems; be it,

The transfer prices can be found in the REISEPLANER after booking the hotel.
The little red taxis take you around the city during the day for a basic fee of 1.40 DH and at night with a small surcharge. Make sure that the counter is switched on or reset.
Some are now equipped with a cell phone and can be picked up for a small surcharge. You do not need to use this service in the center or on the main thoroughfares, as you have to wait a maximum of 5 minutes day and night.
Beige Mercedes 10 years and older. These take you to places outside Agadir and also to many cities in Morocco.
You can either rent the whole taxi or take a shared taxi. A shared taxi means 6 people (2 in the passenger seat and 4 in the back seat). So if you use a taxi on your own you have to pay 6 seats. It is a bit uncomfortable to squeeze into the front passenger seat with two people or squeeze into the back seat with four. Why don’t you buy the two passenger seats and you’ll have a pleasant journey?
