While the city of Agadir is known for the 300 days of beautiful sunshine that the Moroccan coast receives each year, there is still plenty of fun to be had as the sun goes down. The atmosphere of the promenade is as lively at night as it is during the day. Restaurants flaunt international flavor, live music floats through the air, and you can dance the night away at one in effervescent night clubs. Check out the list below for ideas about the nine best things to do in Agadir at night.
1. Drive to the Kasbah for stunning sunset vistas
The Kasbah is a series of fortifications that were built in 1541. From atop the hill where the Kasbah sits, you can see how Agadir sprawls from the concrete jungle to the glistening golden sand beaches. The stunning panorama is even more impressive as the sun starts to set over the Atlantic and the lights begin to twinkle in the city. The Kasbah is located approximately 4 miles (7 kilometers) northwest of the city center, so take a taxi to the Kasbah and watch as dusk colors the white buildings of the city below the hill. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can choose to forgo the taxi back down and make the hike back to the city on foot.

Traditional Moroccan fare is also served. No matter what dish you choose, it is sure to be delicious.

From here, you can enjoy the pleasant hustle and bustle as people head to souks, restaurants, and clubs. If you need a boost of energy, order a scrumptious snack from behind the patisserie counter or sip on mint tea, a Moroccan staple.

When you feel like hitting the dance floor, Papagayo is the place to go. Listed as one of the best nightclubs in Agadir, DJs spin Western hits and ensure that the party goes until the morning. Like most clubs in Morocco, Papagayo is attached to the Riu Tikida hotel’s property, so security is tight.
Le So, or the So Night Lounge, is another popular option to spend the night partying. The club is laid out on several different levels, and the champagne and vodka bars are truly incredible. Although the drinks can be a little bit pricey, local artists and DJs keep music pouring all night for a spectacular evening out.
