- The nearest airport is the tiny Aeroport de Mogador, but flights tend only to be from Casablanca and Paris. Marrakech’s airport is two and a half hours away by car. Direct flights from Gatwick and Heathrow to Marrakech and Caablanca with Royal Air Maroc, GB Airways and Air France; from July 2006, EasyJet starts flying from Gatwick.
- There aren’t any trains, but you can get a coach from Marrakech and Agadir through Supratours (+212 (0)524 435525); the journey takes around three or four hours and costs up to 200dh return.
- No cars are allowed in the medina | so there’s not much need to have your own car in this compact seaside town | but if you do drive there | parking is easy. You can get a taxi to or from Marrakech for around 800dh and the journey takes about two hours.
