If you are looking for a more isolated and less developed excursion away from the beach, from Aourir (12 km [7 miles] north of Agadir), take the paved road 50 km (31 miles) up into the Ida Outanane Mountains to the waterfalls here, near Immouzer des Ida Outanane. Check with locals—the waterfalls are often dry when the region is experiencing drought. On your way you'll pass through the palm gorge of Paradise Valley, where the rocky riverbank welcomes picnicking Moroccan
families and foreigners alike. The Berber souk in Immouzer is on Thursday and is a great place to buy local honey. The many opportunities for walking and hiking make this an ideal day excursion from Agadir.
