The traditional Moroccan Hammam is the ultimate spa experience. Remove layers of dead skin and dirt, whilst indulging in some seriously sumptuous traditional Moroccan beauty products in a lovely, warm steam room. Whether you opt for the local Hammam, where you join local men/women in a communal steam room for a good old scrub down or you fancy going it alone in a private (more expensive) session, once you’re finished, we promise you you’ll feel totally brand new.
So what does the Moroccan Hammam involve?
Just south of Tamraght, on the road back to Agadir (Agadir is the name of the airport you fly into when you’re coming to Tamraght) is the vibrant village of Aourir.
Fondly known as Banana Village because of the colourful, sweet-to-the-taste and locally-sourced bananas that are sold on roadside stands, Aourir is a go-to destination for locals and tourists alike to pick up every day bits and bobs, fresh fish, meat, veggies and to use the ATMs (for neighbouring villages Tamraght and Taghazout, Banana Village is the closest place to get out cash).
On most days you’ll see people catching up on the mural heavy streets, push bikes weaving betweens cars and of course, lots of street animals, so it’s safe to say on a day-to-day basis Aourir is brimming with life and on Wednesdays, something a little extra comes to town with the arrival of the weekly Souk.
