The sun all year round asks for a visit to the beach! Agadir’s elongated beach is ideal for beach tourists. Jet skis are available for rent, parasols and sun loungers are available on Agadir Beach. Along the beach is the boulevard with plenty of eateries where you can order something to eat or drink. Enough fun things for a day of beach fun in Agadir!

Coastal resort Agadir is not located near the Sahara. Therefore, your stay in Agadir seems difficult to combine with a visit to the Sahara. However, not everybody has the time (and the inclination) to do a multi-day trip and to drive many hundreds of kilometres to visit the Sahara.
But we have the answer to that!

The little Sahara is 45 minutes drive from Agadir and you can book a half day trip with Surf Paradise Morocco to visit the little Sahara. Not only will we visit the little Sahara, you can also try sandboarding during this half day trip! (This is also a very fun activity for children and teenagers)
We will visit the little Sahara on this half day trip when it is at its most beautiful. During sunset, when everything turns beautiful orange and we can see the sun set. The ultimate formula to end a holiday day in a beautiful and special way.

Taghazout surfcamp
