, King Muhammad V of Morocco declared: "If Destiny decided the destruction of Agadir, its rebuilding depends on our Faith and Will." Agadir after 1960 The current city was rebuilt 2 km further south, led by the architects Jean-François Zevaco, Elijah Azagury, Pierre Coldefy, and Claude Verdugo. Agadir became a large city of over half a million by 2004, with a large port with four basins: the commercial port with draft of 17 metres, triangle fishing, fishing port, and a pleasure boat port with marina. Agadir was the premier sardine port in the world in the 1980s and has a famous beach stretching over 10 km with one of the finest seafront promenades in the world. Its climate has 340 days of sunshine per year which allows for swimming all year round. The winter is unusually warm and summer heat is never oppressive (summer haze however is common). Agadir is the premier tourist destination in the country, a claim sometimes disputed by Marrakech, and the premier fishing port of Morocco. Business is also booming with the export of citrus fruit and vegetables produced in the fertile valley of Souss. With its white buildings, wide flowered boulevards, modern hotels and European style cafes, Agadir is not a typical city of traditional Morocco but it is a modern, active and dynamic city, turned towards the future. The bay of Agadir and the nearby Bay of Taghazout are members of the "Club of the most beautiful bays in the world". The city is served by the Agadir–Al Massira International Airport (Agadir–Al Massira Airport). Climate thumb right Sunset in Agadir (File:Agadir coucher soleil 0992.JPG) Agadir features a subtropical-semiarid climate (Köppen (Köppen climate classification): ''BSh '') with warm summers and mild winters. Located along the Atlantic Ocean, Agadir has a very temperate climate. The daytime temperature generally stays in the 20s °C (70s °F) every day, with the winter highs typically reaching 20.4°C (70°F) in December–January (''see weather-table below''). The annual temperatures are very similar to Nairobi, Kenya, but with much less rainfall -about 10 inches annually- and the mid-year nights are less chilly than the Kenyan Capital. Occasionally however, the region experiences winds from the Sahara called ''Chergui'', which may exceptionally and for a few days (2-5) raise the heat above 40°C. The lowest temperature recorded in Agadir was -2.6°C and the highest maximum recorded was 49.1°C at Agadir airport on 30 July 2009 Wikipedia:Agadir commons:Agadir

international fast

in Morocco, but the prices are not so high and there is nobody pushing you to buy. Eat There are four main zones to eat in Agadir: * New Talbourjt: The cheapest restaurants are here. There are menus for 35 Dh. It's one of the cheapest zones in Morocco for tourists. * The beach: Next to the beach, there are many restaurants. You can find from international fast food to Indian food, good fish restaurants, etc. It's the most expensive and touristic zone. * Around the Uniprix: It's the mid price zone. There are touristic restaurants and some restaurants for the local people. If you're looking for a quick snack, keep an eye out for the pastry vendors who roam the beach carrying big plastic trays, selling sweet fried bread (a kind of African variant on the donut). Beware, however, that these friendly hawkers will often approach you on the beach, strike up a conversation, and then thrust a pastry into your hand, whether you asked for one or not. Which, of course, you are then expected to pay for (Dh 5 or Dh 10 is a fair price). If you don't want to buy, simply refuse the offer with a polite smile. They ''are'' delicious, though. Drink Agadir is ''touristically prepared'' for Europeans, so you can find night clubs in the touristic zones, where you can find more tourists beside the usual locals looking for tourists. Alcohol is found in all the touristic places. If you are looking just to talk and drink something during the evening, you can go to the nice and big cafes that are at ave. Hassan II, like ''La Fontaine'', ''La Veranda'', ''Le Dome'', etc. It's a real ritual for many Agadir citizens. Sleep The main budget accommodation area is in the Nouveau Tablorjt. A simple double room will set you back around 150–180 Dh although you might find a really basic hotel with crappy toilets for 80 Dh. Arrive early as hotels tend to fill up quickly in high season.
