The pleasures of the backcountry

Everything seems a bit sweeter under the Agadir sun. Shopping is no exception, so expect to boost your sense of well-being as you taste the many flavors of the Agadir region.

Morocco's native argan trees grow throughout the area; their oil is a precious commodity that has made Agadir famous. If you leave the city, you can visit one of the many cooperatives found throughout the surrounding area and learn about the know-how used to produce the argan oil that is used for culinary and cosmetic purposes by Amazigh, or Berber, women. In fact, why not spend some time at a spa or at one of the fitness and wellness centers in Agadir? They are a wonderful place to enjoy the benefits of the argan tree and its oil, which many believe can work miracles.

Finally, Agadir is a also a destination for food lovers. The outlying farmland is fertile, supporting almond trees and thousands of flowers, which yield some of the most delicious honeys in the country. Agadir cuisine draws inspiration from all these flavors to serve up delectable dishes like saffron rice balls and chicken tagine with honey to delight your taste buds!

Come to Agadir, where shopping is an art of its own.
