A travel taster by Mary Concannon of Eblana Travel
In many ways Morocco is caught in a time warp with past and present existing side by side, creating a charm and elegance that will astonish the first time visitor.
This cosmopolitan destination, a mix of the exotic and the unusual, is a refreshing alternative to the usual sunspots and ideal for those looking for a holiday with a difference.
Agadir has truly come of age and has taken its place among the best short-haul sun resorts. Agadir, Morocco's most popular and spacious resort is blessed with a beautiful location on 10 kilometres of sandy beach on the Atlantic coast. The newly completed three kilometre promenade is ideal for a leisurely stroll. A huge array of restaurants and cafes line the main beach area, stretching to the new marina. In the evening join in the local pastime of people watching, or sample its fine restaurants or casinos. The more active holidaymaker will be tempted to enjoy a round of golf on one of its excellent golf courses. Getting around is so easy, just hop in a local taxi which only costs a few euro.
