When to Go in Agadir

Edit This

Agadir is surrounded by the Antiatlas Mountains, the Atlantic Ocean and the Sahara Desert in southwestern Morocco. Because it's so sheltered, it has a very mild climate all year round, similar to the Mediterranean. The area has more than 300 days of sunshine every year, and little rain. Most people visit Agadir from April to October, given that these months are the best for enjoying the beach and all of the activities that go along with it.

Spring and Summer

The summer season is dry and warm, perfect for long days at the beach, walking around town and surfing. The trade winds that come in from the southwest keep the temperatures from getting too unbearable. Skies stay flawlessly blue and clear during this season, and there is basically no rainfall to speak of. Temperatures tend to stay in the low to mid 20s (Centigrade), and mornings can sometimes be foggy in the summer, due to the moisture off the Atlantic Ocean.

Spring is just a bit cooler, with highs from 17 to 19 degrees Centigrade. Most tourists come to Agadir during these two seasons, and indeed the prices go up due to the high demand for hotels, activities, restaurants and more. However, despite the increase in tourists, it's still the best time to visit the city, because you are assured sunny days that are warm enough for the beach.

Fall and Winter

The winters are mild with a more than decent amount of sunny days. The humidity goes up a bit, and temperatures drop to about 13 to 16 degrees Centigrade, which is still pleasant for walking around town and going to museums or galleries, although not ideal for beach activities. Rarely do temperatures get below 10 degrees during the winter. There's also more of a chance for rain; showers begin around October and continue until March. December is, by far, the wettest month of the year. The rain and cooler temperatures are the main reasons that people don't travel to Agadir very often in winter or autumn. Autumn is wet as well, but has temperatures slightly higher than those during the spring (20 - 21 C). These seasons make up the low tourism part of the year in Agadir, so if you choose to go in winter or autumn, despite the more limited activities, you'll find plenty of discounts and deals when it comes to hotels and restaurants.
