Our flight got in late Monday night and after a comfortable sleep in our hotel room, we started our day bright and early with a luxury breakfast at Patisserie Tafarnout, which we’d seen had great reviews online. I had a croissant with jam and butter and Toby decided on chocolate cake which had a fondant icing and a truffly centre – we are on holiday after all! My croissant was delicious and I had a lovely freshly made orange juice, whilst Toby had a latte which he enjoyed as well, although I don’t understand how he could drink coffee somewhere so hot!
We headed over to the beach after breakfast and were delighted at how clean and well-maintained it was. After a bit of sun-bathing and when our food had gone down, we decided we’d have a play in the sea. The sky was clear and it was already sweltering, so we threw on our swimming gear and got stuck in!
Off to the beach
After our swim and another lounge on the beach, we decided we’d have a stroll along the coastal road, which gave us a great view of the whole bay and meant we could have some time to ourselves, which we really enjoyed!
Once we got back to the beach, we did something pretty uncharacteristic of us; we went surfing! We saw people having lessons on the beach and they said they were from Taddanga surf school. After a quick word with their instructor, we were kitted out with foam boards and headed out into the water! The waves were gentle enough not to be terrifying and our instructor was really helpful and patient. Annoyingly, Toby was a natural and stood up within half an hour. However, by the end of the lesson, even I managed to stand up, quite an achievement considering my sense of balance!
We really wanted to get out of Agadir a bit to enjoy some views of the coastline and the town, especially as Toby and I had both brought our cameras along for the trip. We decided to get a taxi to the Kasbah out of town, as we’d heard that it was a great hilltop location to get some holiday snaps. I’m really glad we went; the view from the high point of Agadir and its huge beach was breath-taking! There was also a lovely cool sea breeze and I got some great photos of the town, including a couple selfie with us in the foreground and the beautiful town in the background!
Out for some food
Once back in town, we took a look around the New Marina and spent a lot of time deciding which of the gorgeous, modern apartments and luxury boats we’d most like to buy! We were starving by this point and were relieved to find that there were a huge number of gorgeous restaurants in Agadir. We decided to eat at Restaurant Le Quai and were instantly impressed when the restaurant manager Eric came over to our table to say hello and ask how our trip was going! I decided on clams with spaghetti, and Toby had a beef dish with fresh truffle - he said it was the most tender and delicious beef that he’d ever had! We finished the evening with a couple of drinks at a local bar and had a sit on the beach before heading back up to our rooms after a truly unforgettable 24 hours in Agadir!
