Morocco is a liberal Muslim country, and men and women are welcome to wear shorts and t-shirts. Swimming costumes and bikinis are normal on the beach but it is advisable to cover up your arms and legs a bit when walking around town. Shorts, tees and flip flops are the norm. Trousers and jumpers are sometimes needed particularly in mid winter when the evenings can be chilly so warm clothes are a good idea during that period.

What about the evenings?

It’s really up to you. You can dine on the terraces overlooking the surf and enjoy a drink under the stars, get comfy in the salon and watch a film, go and have a mint tea in the village and checkout the scene in this bustling little fishing village or we can arrange taxis for those who fancy checking out Agadir’s night life!
