We pass Agadir and continue south to Tiznit, the town famous for its silver jewellery. From here we turn towards the sea and take the particularly beautiful coastal road to Sid Ifni. This is a little neat blue and white town with a distinctly Spanish feel to it. It takes its name from a local holy man and was the capital of the Aït Baâmrane tribe famous for its resistance against the Spanish. The night is spent in a riad.

The night is spent in a riad.
