🌍 Africa is my favorite continent, although Nothern Africa is so different from the rest, I still wanted to explore it.
💶It was relatively cheap.
How to spend 3 days in Agadir: Our itinerary
Here’s how we spent our 3 full days here.
1️⃣ Caught the late flight out on Monday evening (9 pm)
2️⃣ Tuesday: Beach and chill day.

4️⃣ Thursday: Day trip to Marrakesh.

Is Morocco safe?
In our experience, definitely. The strip in Agadir with all the restaurants reminded me so much of Lanzarote. Marrakesh was busier and had a lot more going on so in some situations I can see why it might feel overwhelming to some people but we never felt in danger.
Do women have to cover up?
Nope, not anymore. Women in Morocco now have equal rights as men. They no longer have to cover up, it’s a choice. In saying that, the mosques are still separated by gender.
🛌 Where to stay in Agadir
There are so many hotels along the main strip in Agadir. We stayed in La Suite Boutique Hotel, a 2-minute walk from the beach and about 30 minutes from the airport. It was a little cheaper than the beachfront hotels and the staff was all particularly helpful.

How to spend 3 days in Agadir, extra tips;
We literally spent 3 days here, so if we had more time with annual leave and priorities at home we would have stayed longer.
Depending on flight prices, I’d recommend flying into Agadir and flying home from Marrakesh so you don’t have to make the trip back.
