Also known as the Banana village, Aourir is situated 8km North of Agadir and just a 40 minute car journey from Agadir airport this village offers you a true Moroccan experience. Aourir was nicknamed the Banana Village by Jimi Hendrix in the 1960’s due to the Banana groves found in the Valley and the large quantities of small sweet Bananas that are sold on the roadside in the main streets.
Aourir boasts 300 days of sunshine every year and is situated on the Atlantic Coastline with a stunning mountain backdrop. The long sandy uncrowded beaches and magnificent waves with a fairly constant swell during the winter months (Nov-March) make this an ideal sun spot for surfers and tourists who want to soak up the Moroccan adventure.
Aourir has two main streets where you can purchase most things that you will need whilst on holiday, there is a small supermarket, a pharmacy, an ATM and plenty of restaurants for lunch and everning meals but the highlight of the week in Aourir is on a Wednesday when the weekly Souk arrives. The market place and main streets become alive with the vibrant smells and sounds of the market, an experience you just can’t miss.
