** AGADIR **



The word Agadir means in Berber "Fortified Granary" and is probably derived from the semitic root "g-d-r" (meaning fence) through Punic or Hebrew.

It has a population of 678,596 (2004; census figures for the agglomeration include the nearby cities of Inezgane and At Melloul); the population of the city proper is estimated at 200,000. The mild winter climate (January average midday temperature 20C/68F) and good beaches have made it a major "winter sun" destination for Northern Europeans. The mayor is Tariq Kabbaj.

The city is located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, near the foot of the Atlas Mountains, just north of the point where the Souss River flows into the ocean.

Agadir is an important fishing and commercial port, the first sardine port in the world, (exporting cobalt, manganese, zinc and citrus).It is also a seaside resort with a long sandy beach. Because of its large buildings, wide roads, modern hotels, and European-style cafs, Agadir is not a typical city of traditional Morocco, but it is a modern, busy and dynamic town.

Yes but some areas of the city are a bit dirty specially near the Port which is quite normal

is it true that agadir is for youth and senior citizens ?? I was told most tourists are either between age 16 and 25 or over age 55
what about people like me between age 26 and 54 ???
