Atlantic Coast

 

 

Overview

Led by an experienced and very knowledgeable guide, the trip is flexible and may, for example, include a visit to points of interest for bird watchers and botanists, to Agadir (for example to the port to see the fish landed (272 species!), to the beach, to the viewpoint at the Kasbah, (the site of the old city destroyed by an earthquake) or even an off licence), to Tamri to a shop at a cooperative (which sells a vast range of locally produced honeys, olive and argan oil products), or a stop to buy tiny sugar bananas (organically grown out of

doors and said to be the best in Morocco), and to experience the culture of Taghazoute which is the surfers’ paradise or you can simply enjoy the wilder parts of the coast.

For those keen on wildlife, there are opportunities to see the endangered bald ibis at Tamri or near the lighthouse of Cap Rhir where other sea birds of interest are found and to see the various endemic species including cactoid euphorbias such as Euphorbia echinus for which this area is renowned.

There is a wide choice of lunch spots, for example beaches or near the lighthouse at the promontory of Cap Rhir.
