GoeEye-1 Satellite Image (0.5m) – Agadir, Morocco with mild winter climates and good beaches have made it a major “winter sun” destination for Northern Europeans. The city is located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, near the foot of the Atlas Mountains, just north of the point where the Souss River flows into the ocean. Agadir is an important fishing and commercial port, one of the first major sardine ports in the world. Agadir is also known for its exports of cobalt, manganese, zinc and citrus products. It is also a seaside resort with a long sandy beach. Because of its large buildings, wide roads, modern hotels, and European-style cafés, Agadir is not a typical city of traditional Morocco, but a modern, busy and dynamic town.
