Highlights

Paradise Valley

Paradise Valley is a area North-East of Agadir.

It’s a lovely area to swim or hike.

The main swimming hole is located below.


Taroudant

This city in the Sous Valley in southern Morocco. It is situated east of Agadir on the road to Ouarzazate and the Sahara desert and south of Marrakesh. The town is known as the “Grandmother of Marrakesh” because it looks like a smaller Marrakesh with its surrounding ramparts. In the sixteenth century, the Saadi dynasty briefly used Taroudant as a capital before it moved its royal seat onwards to Marrakesh.

To the tourist, Taroudant is much less touristy than the grandfather, Marrakech.
