Tiznit Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 21 photos

Town called the Gateway to the Sahara..

91 km from Agadir and 107 km from Tafroute this town makes a worthwhile stop between the sights or on a circuit of all 3 places. 15 km from here out on the coast is Aglou Plage which makes a nice alternative for overnight stays. 40 km further south is lovely Mirleft and on further also worth seeing is the blue and white Spanish colonial seaside town of Sidi Ifni - theres a coastal road from Aglou Plage.

Red, mudbricked walls of Tiznit

You can climb onto some sections of the walls - with its 29 towers and nine gates - which encircle the town with 6km of red mudbrick - which gives appearance of being an old city but pretty much only dates from 1881.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:blue and white buildings around the old medina - lots of interesting doors and alleyways
  • Cons:a lot of jewellery shops...watch out for hustlers - I prefer ti know who is good by association with my connecctions
