Agadir, Morocco

Temperatures during the winter months average between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit with roasting summer temperatures averaging between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Agadir has a wide selection of restaurants offering plenty of aromatic traditional cooking with favorites such as tajine's, pastillas and couscous easily found. Due to its location, fresh fish and seafood is also widely available with many fine restaurants and cafe's being found along the seafront providing splendid views of the beach.

The Souk El Had is located close to the centre of the city and offers offers a large selection of fresh fruit, spices and vegetables all piled high, and a large selection of traditional handicraft items such as rugs, leather items, homewares and clothing.
