Recommended places to stay

Continue along the coast to Casablanca for a morning visit to the Hassan II Mosque before heading south to El Jadida. Visit of El Jadida, including the famous underground cisterns and historic harbour.

Recommended places to stay

Continue south to to the fishing port and seaside town of Safi with free time for lunch. Afterwards, continue alongside the sardine factories briefly before emerging on to a seldom-used but stunning coastal road all the way to Essaouira.

Relax in Essaouira; an easy town to explore on foot. Why not indulge in a fresh fish BBQ lunch at the harbour then explore the sea-facing battlements and craft shops afterwards. You may also like to spend time on the huge beach, play golf or enjoy some surfing. You may like to use one of the days for a detour inland to Marrakech on one day.

 

Drive down the spectacular coast road, ever southwards, passing many small villages and famous surfing beaches before reaching Agadir. Along the way we recommend a short detour inland to visit the waterfalls at Imouzzer.

After a brief visit of Agadir, we recommend you drive south to Tiznit, continue to Aglou Plage and then travel along this wonderfully unspoilt section of coastline to Mirleft for a couple of nights. An alternative place to stay would be Sidi Ifni; however, you may elect to remain in Agadir to visit Taroudannt and the Souss Massa Nature Park.

In the Mirleft area you can visit many beaches, partake in activities arranged locally such as para-gliding and also visit the unique ex-Spanish town of Sidi Ifni.

Recommended places to stay

This is the final scheduled day of this itinerary but you could elect to stay longer at Mirleft or travel even further south to Tan Tan Plage or return to Agadir. Depeneding upon your flight time or onward arrangements you could also spend an extra night in Tiznit or Taroudannt which are both relatively close to Agadir Airport.

Drop off car and driver at Agadir Airport for flight home.
