Short trip Agadir plus?

I am going to Agadir to visit a relative this fall. I will be in Lisbon immediately prior. I will not be doing a full tourist trip to Morocco to say the least, but wanted to see at least something while I'm in country if i can work it out. The overall trip will only last three or four days. The Agadir visit will take up two days or so.

I apologize for the wide-ranging questions, but i have a few areas I need figured out.

Can I get there from Lisbon easily or should i go into Spain and go to Morocco from there?

I gather from reading that Marrakesh is the one place I should visit. Should I fly into Marrakesh, visit a night, then proceed (drive?fly?taxi?bus?) into Agadir? Then back to Marrakesh to fly out?

Any suggestions for this short trip will be very much appreciated.

The only advantage of going from Spain is that you can get a ferry if you wanted to save money on the crossing. Downside of this is that you will have along journey to get to either Marrakech or Agadir from the arrival point in Tanger so your suggestion of getting a flight from Lisbon is a sensible one.

You can then proceed from Marra to Agadir by bus (90Dh/€9) or private taxi (800-1000Dh/€80-100).

You could get a flight out of Agadir which is easy enough but I don't have details of flights to Portugal.

When in Agadir there isn't a great deal to excite a person but it all depends on what you expect. It is great for the beach and restaurants and is a safe place day or night. There are many suggestions in the "Things To Do" bit on the side of the page and you can do a day trip to Taroudant or (better still) Essaouira three hours north along the coast.

Thanks, John. So I will fly from Lisbon. I am not too worried about what to do when I get to Agadir because I will be visiting family--- though hopefully we can take a trip out to Essaouira.

Would you say that a simple schedule of flying into Marrakesh, seeing some of the sights, staying the night, then heading down to Agadir is a sensible one?

I can then either fly out of Agadir or go back to Marra and fly out.
