When, in the late nineties, people started to travel to Morocco for their holidays, a whole new world opened up - a new book opened. The chance to take a vacation in such an exotic place had not been part of the mainstream travel agent portfolio before, and, as a destination, Morocco swiftly captured the imagination of tourists from all over the globe and continues to do so today.


Over 8 million holiday-makers now flock to Morocco every year, and many of these choose Agadir as their base. Bestowed with a sublime climate, and boasting mile upon mile of award winning golden beaches on the Atlantic coast, this is a location where east meets west - with all the facilities you could wish for in a charming and evocative city full of wonderful delights. This is the perfect place to stay if you wish to visit the eerie Sahara Desert, or the majestic Atlas Mountains, both of which are reachable by car.


Marrakech is often referred to as 'the red city'. This is due to the fact that you will see dusky pink coloured walls and buildings everywhere you look. Many of these traditional buildings date from the 12th century, when the bricks were traditionally made using red mud and water from local plains - these are called 'tabia'. However, you will find that Marrakech is most definitely not limited to one colour - this exquisite place showcases every colour of the rainbow to its best effect. One highlight of this magical city is the bustling market located in Jemaa el-Fna square. Here you are likely to see exotic snake charmers and beguiling belly dancers - for charm this is a city that is surely second to none.

When to visit

Summertime in Morocco is extremely hot. In Marrakech, the mercury can regularly hit highs of 40*C during July and August. Stay on the coast though, and you will benefit form a delightfully cooling, near constant sea breeze. The heat is far more bearable during the spring and autumn, with temperatures in the mid to high 20's. If you want to explore the wonders of the country's cities on foot, you should consider visiting during the winter when temperatures tend to hover around in the low 20's, and rain showers are few and far between. Don't forget to pack some warmer attire for the evenings though, as it can feel distinctly chilly after dark.
