|Agadir-Al Massira Airport Shuttles|
|Agadir – Al Massira Airport is located in the capital city of Agadir, Morocco. Agadir is a large city in the southwest of Morocco. Known as the gateway southwestern Morocco, it is the only airport offering commercial flights to Agadir.|
Over 15 miles from downtown, reaching Agadir coast can be a difficult trek, though an easy feat if you’re prepared ahead of time. Reserve a shuttle to avoid public transport schedules as well as traffic, reserving with either local companies or area providers to make each arrival a spectacular one.
Choose which neighborhood you plan to get dropped off in before taking the plunge, either staying in the south beach area of Founty, home to several beach resorts as well as the Casino Atlantic Palace, or go all out at Secteur Touristique (Tourism Sector) for easy access to the city’s best resorts, from Club Med to the Royal Mirage, not to mention shoreline cafés, theaters, and the opening entrance to Agadir Birds Valley’s massive aviary. For something close to the beach but away from the buzz, choose somewhere more inland, whether it’s Boutchakat’s close access to urban gardens and shops to Abattoirs busy bazaars at Sunday Market.
Ensure you’ve got every aspect of your trip in order by printing out all confirmation emails, starting with your shuttle reservation. Do the same with hotel bookings and local tour agencies, one of the most popular being Agadir Tours. Store all physical documents in a travel journal for safe-keeping as well, also taking special care of your extra important documents by scanning them, including passport, identification, and medical prescriptions. Keep those digital scans stored away somewhere they can’t get lost, choosing between a secure email inbox or wide variety of cloud storage services.
