Places in The Souss Valley
Taroudannt (also spelled Taroudant) is sometimes called ‘Little Marrakesh’, but that description doesn’t do the Souss Valley trading centre justice. Hidden by magnificent red-mud walls, and with the snowcapped peaks of the High Atlas beckoning beyond, Taroudannt’s souqs and squares have a healthy sprinkling of Maghrebi mystique.
Tamraght & Aourir
Aourir and Tamraght are known collectively as Banana Village because of the banana groves alongside Oued Tamraght, which separates the villages. Respectively some 12km and 14km north of Agadir, they share Banana Beach, which can be good for beginner surfers at its southern end. Aourir has facilities including a petrol station, post office and banks.
