Wednesday is souk day, when a the traditional market comes to town, selling everything from organic fruit and vegetables, argan and olive oil, antiques, secondhand clothes. You won't find any tourist tat here, it really is authentic, if you want to buy anything then do remember to haggle. Across from the souk on the roadside young guys sell handicrafts and t-shirts, there are some nice souvenirs to buy and you will be helping support the local economy. English isn't spoken, so a few words of French or Arabic, or even Berber will come in handy.

It is advised that women dress a little more conservatively here, as you are not in Agadir and beachwear should only be worn on the beach. If you don't want to be stared at, especially by other women, it is wise to refrain from low cut tops and hot-pants!
