Agadir is sited on a gentle bay with seven miles of magnificent sandy beaches. It is the country's leading fishing harbour and a lively ancient town founded by the Romans and watched over by its citadel, built by the Portuguese in 1540. But in 1960, shortly after the independence of the country, disaster struck and the city was virtually destroyed by two earthquakes and a tidal wave. In the aftermath of the disaster, the government undertook the reconstruction of Agadir and planed the area as Morocco's major tourist resort. The city was rebuilt according to modern specifications for this purpose and today Agadir is indeed Morocco's foremost seaside resort and offers a wide range of five and four star hotels
