Day 8 Agadir - Essaouira

Today have the morning free to enjoy the city of Agadir. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1960, the city was nearly entirely rebuilt, and was done so in the European style. Therefore, there is no old-town medina in Agadir as there is in other Moroccan cities, but what Agadir lacks in that department, it more than makes up for in its beaches. Go for swim or enjoy lovely walk along the bordwalk. Afternoon departure to Essaouira set about 2 hours away. (B)
