Down by the Agadir Marina


MARINA For several years, the city of Agadir has been one of the most popular seaside resorts in Morocco, benefitting from a comfortable climate year round. And it’s why the local and national authorities decided to build a marina which has become an economic and touristic asset to the region.

Opening in 2007 at the north end of the city, not far from the fishing port and the military base, the marina was several years in the making. And required several million dirhams to build shops and upscale housing.

And it’s been a choppy ride at times. Despite some disagreements, the national and international investors haven’t fled yet. IQuite the opposite in fact. Investors continue to open shops, cafes and businesses, including luxury real estate.

The old public polluted pool is no longer. Now the marina is a posh area, a place to be seen, whether in a cafe with friends or family, admiring boats as they speed past, or the ocean itself.

Cafes, chic boutiques, art galleries, luxurious pontoons and speed boats have become necessities here. Both tourists and locals flock here. And depending on the model, boats between four and 30 metres long are permitted at the port.

No matter how long you plan to stay, an apartment is available. Whether you want to live here year round, or just spend a few days, any apartments are available for sale or lease to enjoy the pleasant climate and beaches of Agadir. Tourist facilities vary to accommodate those making the trip to the Atlantic Ocean.

Not far from downtown, other buildings should be inaugurated soon like the Grand Stand built to welcome the CAN in 2012.
