Silversea Luxury Cruises - Agadir, Morrocco

Boasting an impressive 300 days of sun per year, there is a reason why Agadir is Morocco’s premier holiday resort. Nicknamed the “Miami of Morocco”, the resort has sea and sand in abundance, along with a dreamy 10 km beach – perfect for travellers who want sheltered swimming or enjoy water-based fun in the sun. By contrast to the rest of the country, Agadir is thoroughly modern. An earthquake destroyed the city in 1960, killing 15,00 in 13 seconds and leaving another 35,000 homeless. View more

In its place, and under the direction of Le Corbusier, a new city with a new direction was built. Instead of souks and medinas, think modern architecture, wide, tree-lined avenues, open squares and pedestrian precincts. Low rise hotels, boutiques and apartment blocks line the splendid waterfont. While all the original landmarks were destroyed (many not once, but twice, in the 1960 earthquake but also in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake), Agadir strove to rebuild as much as it could. Thus the fabled 1540 Oufla Fort, originally built in the mid-16th century by Saadian Sultan Mohammed ech Cheikh was painstakingly recreated with as much authenticity as possible. The ancient kasbah sits at an amazing vantage point (Oufla being the Amazigh word for ‘above’). The inscription “God, King, Country” over the entrance in both Dutch and Arabic is one of the few original elements and dates back to the middle of the 18th century, when the kasbah was initially restored. The Kasbah offer by far the best views of the city.

Sultan Moulay Abdellah built this fortress in 1572 to protect the city from European attacks.


Your next stop is a brief visit to the La Lebanon Mosque, which highlights Moorish architecture and makes for an excellent photo opportunity.


Moroccan Fantasia Show

Continue on to a highlight of the excursion, a Moroccan Fantasia Show which offers a great opportunity experience horses and various Moroccan folkloric performances.

You will be welcomed by singers and dancers, Moroccan pastries and mint tea are served under traditional Berber tents as you enjoy belly dancing, Berber dances and Andalusian music. A horse race run by horsemen in traditional costumes, firing their rifles at the end of the race, is a symbol of manhood, courage, and hospitality.

From here, continue past the palm groves and gorges of the Tamrhakht River up into the mountains towards Imouzzer.

Alma Village, Paradise Valley, Rocky Gorges and Palm Groves

Upon arrival at Alma Village, another photo stop is made for panoramic views of your surrounds. Leaving Alma Village, re-board your coach and continue your picturesque journey through the countryside en route to the Paradise Valley.

Botanical Gardens and Argan Trees

Your last stop is at the Botanic Gardens. During a guided walking tour, view a plethora of plants used for the artisanal extraction of essential oils.

En route you will stop for a closer look at the indigenous Argon trees, you may be lucky enough to look upon the amusing sight of the local goats trying to climbing a tree.


The reign of Mohammed ash-Sheikh of the Saadi Dynasty, brought in Taroudant's golden age. The Sheikh constructed the city walls and built the great mosque and its minaret in 1528. The town became the capital of the Saadians, who used it as a base to attack the Portuguese in Agadir. Although Marrakech later became the capital, Taroudant continued to prosper through the riches of the Sous plain; marketing goods such as sugar cane, cotton, rice and indigo. Today Taroudant is fondly called the "Grandmother of Marrakech" and it retains the exotic feel of a small market town on a caravan route. It resembles a scaled-down, quieter Marrakech with its surrounding ramparts. Unlike Marrakech however, Taroudant contains almost the entire city within its walls. This town has is also known for its jewellery and carpets, with a much less frantic atmosphere to purchase these items.


Enjoy a brief walk through the souks and then some free time around the square to meander or people-watch.


Dar Zitoune

Re-board the coach for a brief drive to Morocco's hotel retreat, Dar Zitoune. Located in the heart of the region of Souss in the south of Morocco you will be surrounded by beautiful gardens and shaded by olive and citrus trees, an ideal place for anyone seeking peace and quiet. Tea and Moroccan pastries will be served in the garden or near the pool and the quiet of the area will be a most welcome retreat from the busy Medina just visited.
