Guilmim is not a busy tourist destination, located only two hundred kilometers from Agadir in Southern Morocco. This area is the ideal day visit when staying in Agadir and is home to the famous camel market.
When you arrive in Guilmim you’ll want to head to the camel market, though don’t let the name fool you, you won’t find many camels for sale. It is more of a souk, traditional market, selling a range of traditional items and livestock including sheep and goats.
You can stop at the Caia Dahman Takri Palace, while in ruins you’ll be amazed to know that the palace is only around one hundred years old, tucked away in the town. During the day there are the souks or traditional markets and there are great evening markets to enjoy.
