What our Agadir Shore Excursion is All About?
The half-day Agadir shore excursion that begins from the Agadir port includes:
Kasbah of Agadir –
The major historical attraction of the Kasbah of Agadir is its massive walls and the gateway. The Kasbah was built in the mid-16th century that once accommodated a bustling population within its walls. The hillside position of the Kasbah offers magnificent panoramic views across Agadir and the Atlantic coastline. This place offers the best photographic conditions in the late afternoon.
Visit the Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions –
Also known as the Berber Museum or the Musee du Patrimoine Amazigh d’Agadir, this museum is dedicated to the preservation and showcasing of the local Amazigh culture. You will be able to peek into the rich traditions of the locals. The exhibits here include dazzling Berber jewelry, clothing, pottery, lamps, textiles, tools and art.
The Swiss District –
The Swiss district is a marvelous place within Agadir that is located among the spectacular sandy beaches, desert landscapes and striking rock formations. It is the oldest villa neighborhood of the Agadir city.
Besides these three our Agadir shore excursion includes the visit to the main shopping area, the carpet factory and the artisan’s district where you will get an opportunity to attend the demonstrations of lace making, embroidery, and wood.
Also, if time permits we will make you visit the souks. The best local market for buying souvenirs and getting a glimpse of the local trade is Souk El-Had (or the Sunday Market) which is a large souk with about 6000 stalls. This souk is famous for its Argan Oil products. You can also find the best traditional Moroccan items such as clothing, footwear, pottery, rugs, carpets and more here.
