Aglou Plage

Aglou Plage is a world away from nearby Tiznit, both in climate and ambience, although connected by 17 km (10 miles) of good tarmac. It's the start of a good 75-km (47-mile) stretch of untouched beach that runs down to Sidi Ifni, where the stretches of beautiful sandy beach are surrounded by tall cliffs and wind-bitten scrub. On most weekends between May and October the lifeguard-protected beach is packed with vacationing Moroccans. A vibrant real estate industry has emerged, serving wealthy Moroccans seeking a seafront vacation home as well as foreigners fed up with Agadir's popularity. At the other end of the realty scale, about a kilometer up the beach are a series of troglodyte dwellings built into the cliff as shelter for fishermen (and, according to locals, the occasional hermit Frenchman) that you can reach on foot. A seat in a shared taxi from Tiznit should cost about 10 DH. Agents in Tiznit can arrange rentals in Aglou.
