Located in southern Morocco, Agadir is a popular summer playground. There are plenty of excellent places to eat, drink and sleep in this seaside resort with a decidedly European feel.

Want to sit back and let someone else do all the planning for you? Then book Culture Trip’s six-day group adventure where you’ll get to hike the Atlas Mountains and stop off at a traditional Berber village.

Also referred to as the New Medina, Agadir Medina was created by Coco Pollizi, a Moroccan-born Italian artist. Be transported back to times gone by as you stroll through the alleyways of the reconstructed medina along the tall walls built from sand-coloured stone. Shopkeepers sell an array of wares and you can watch artisans at work.
