The port of Agadir is located on the Atlantic coast at 30°25' N - 9°38' W, 35 km south of Cap Ghir. The port is connected to Essaouira by the main road No. 8 and to Marrakech by Road No. 40. The two major roads serve the port's two gates.
Given its hinterland, the port of Agadir plays an important role in the development of the regional and national economies and is the natural outlet of agribusiness activities of the Souss-Massa region for fish products.
The port of Agadir, which used to be mostly dedicated to fishing in the past, gradually became a port complex which now encompasses the fishing port, the commercial port, and the marina.
