What to see:
The town is famous for the remains of Portuguese buildings and the Cistern. Although these are fairly limited places of attractions in this port city however there is a mysterious appeal to the whole atmosphere and look of the sleepy yet busy port city. Even the most dedicated historian may find their interest waning after an hour.
How to Reach:
• There are many (3-5) buses a day from Agadir to El Jadida. From the north, there are also buses all the way from Rabat, through Casablanca. Private vehicles and shuttles are available in plenty to reach El Jajida anytime around without problem.
• Many trains depart every 2 hours from Casablanca Port and Casablanca Voyageurs train stations. The trip to reach El Jajida can take up to 1 hour 30 minutes
Many buses arrive at night. You are likely to find your hostel or campsite closed at 3:30 am. If you have sleeping bags or a tent ground sheet, sleeping on the beach is possible. You may wake up damp from the salt spray though."
