Morocco calls

Where picturesque desertscapes dissolve into a sultry vista and the breathtaking mountains creep up into the union of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean…Morocco has it all
The moment one steps out of the airport and ventures into the nearest hotspots of civilisation, a scene from the legendary film Aladdin confronts you. Palm-lined boulevards, snake charmers, tented markets and hoards of handicrafts come to life against the constant pulsing of the Gnaouan drums. Morocco calls and only those afraid of exploration, adventure and a vivacious culture dare say no.
To get a quick taste of the boundless natural spaces, gear up for the city of Agadir, in the south-west. Agadir is known for its unique overview of the Atlantic Ocean. Many prefer to call it the only true beach town of the country. Not only can you languish all day on the golden coast but you can also enjoy the city’s plethora of sports and water activities. Ranging from jet-skiing, kite surfing, windsurfing, sailing, horse-riding, tennis to golfing, Agadir is a haven for active outdoor folk.
With over 300 days of sunshine, Agadir has become a major attraction for the Europeans who enjoy its fusion of traditional Arabic architecture with European styles. For late night camping, away from the hustle-bustle of the seasonal tourism, visit the excursion of Taghazout, a 6-kilometre long beach, bordered with pine, eucalyptus and tamarisk trees.

And why come so far and not experience the once-in-a life time walk through the Sahara Desert. For a reasonable price, tourists can enjoy a camel ride through the desert from Agadir. Travelling across the seemingly endless dunes you can see the Royal Palace, and explore the Souss Massa National Park, a bird watchers paradise. Here, you will be able to catch the pink flamingos and the endangered bald ibis, rarely found in other parts of the world.

If in the mood to tingle your adventurous streak, you can hire a Geological Team to take you in search for and excavate prehistoric Jurassic fossils found near the mountain range. However, be sure to pack adequate clothing, sun block, water and a stout pair of trainers or boots for the archaeological experience, as the Morocco sun can catch you by surprise.
Nights in Morocco offer a range of clubs and musical events to suit various moods. For an electrifying night with world class DJs: Dreams, Flamingo and Paya Gayo are hailed as the best clubs in the country. If in the mood for something a little mellower, listen to traditional Arabo-Andalusian melodies or watch the warm and intoxicating oriental cabaret.
A nice place to shop in Agadir is Le Medina d’Agadir Cocco Polizzi, built by an Italian architect in the early 1960s. This is a great place to buy souvenirs such as potter, ceramic, gifts, artisanal products, handicraft, slippers, wood decorations, bone and metal ornaments and jewellery.
