SEASON: Spring and fall
The moroccan south is one of the few regions that still offers hundreds of kilometres of unspoiled coasts that no longer exist in the modern Europe.
Framed from large bands of dunes endless beaches invite to unrestrained gallop and give a great feeling of liberty. Impressive rock formations and blunt cliffs, some of them higher than 200 meters provide cave dwellings of fishermen, nesting sites of wild ibis, protected spaces.
At the coast you can also observe numerous kinds of migratory birds and seafowls for example flamingos, grey cranes, cormorants, stilts and sea gulls.
Beside the 72 species of birds there is also a great number of resettled animal species like ostrichs, gazelles and antelopes, which mainly gather in the protectorate of Souss Massa in the south of Agadir.
South to Essaouira we find ourselves in the area of the Berber, which is divided into several tribal areas. In former times this was stage for regular tribal disputes. Towards Sidi Ifni and further south we encounter trading nomads, which today are half-resident.
The architecture of the villages changes according to the availability of materials. Some are built of soil, some are stone constructions. They gather on soft hills, along the Wadis or in deep vales and softly melt with the colours of the landscape.
Main occupation: Fishing, cattle ranching, agriculture, apiculture, argan oil production, craftwork and tourism.
