Agadir to Casablanca
 
We decided to leave for Casablanca via the coast road.

There is an inland road, but that seemed to be a major road, and we preferred to take the smaller and hopefully more scenic road.

The road was indeed quite pretty, but also small and often difficult to overtake.

And there were very few petrol stations here. I ended up running out of gas before a station, but they didn't have unleaded, only leaded. Lucky I had a y-piece installed, so no problem there.

This is also the tourist coast, and we saw 1000's of camping cars and mobile homes (mostly retired folks staying for the winter), and because of the surf, a lot of surfers.

It's also the area where you'll find a lot of backpackers. They came from all over the world. Chile, Australia, UK, France, Italy, Germany... you name it, they were there. Some alone, some in groups.

Still I prefer to be on my motorcycle.. ;-)


Total Distance: 550 kms
Road Condition: Reasonable but small. Last 50 kms was an autoroute.
Time: 8 hours
rush hour traffic Leaving Agadir was not that easy. For the first time we had a lot of rush hour traffic.
industrial areas On the Northern outskirts, there were only very ugly industrial areas.
Coast But then the road cleared, and the sea became visible.
mobile homes And suddenly we encountered hundreds of camping cars & mobile homes....
Wild camping site And then we saw why... thousands of camping cars parked alongside the beach. It's not a camping site, they were just camping there. Alongside the coast, all along the way, we saw them parked everywhere.
long winding roads The scenery was pretty, long winding roads along the sea.
Roads And the roads were quite well maintained.
Pretty What can I say ? Pretty
Surf's up Loads of waves, and loads of surfers (mostly Australian).
Open air market Open air market in one of the towns we crossed.
real roadside cafe A real roadside cafe... this guy was offering his stuff under an umbrella on the road.
Children Our fans (they probably thought we were lost from the Dakar).
Buy your own meal At our lunch break, at a roadside restaurant, we had to go to the local butcher and buy the meat we wanted the restaurant to prepare.... what an idea !
roadside restaurant And this was the roadside restaurant.
donkey carts We came across more donkey carts here than any where else. We must have seen about 3000 on the road. Everywhere you looked there were donkey carts...
Local town scenery Local town scenery. It looked like villages were poorer than in the countryside.
Local town scenery Local town scenery.
Local town scenery Local town scenery
Boring road We left the coastal road, and headed inland. The road became straight and boring.
Nothing special Nothing special about this photo, I just thought it was pretty...
roadside cafe Another roadside cafe where we stopped for coffee and toilet. But they didn't have a toilet, so we ended doing it behind the building..
roadside cafe Here someone wanted to buy Jacques' jerrican for a lot of money....
Casablanca This is Casablanca from the hotel. Casablanca is not exactly pretty, but is was the MOST polluted city we came across. It took many minutes in the shower to get rid of all the grime on our faces;...
Casablanca Nothing special, just the economical/financial capital of Morocco.
worlds biggest Mosque This is worlds biggest Mosque !
Casablanca beach The Casablanca beach.
