Dinosaur Footprints Trip From Agadir
On Anza beach is the Dinosaur Footprints Trip From Agadir, a region in the north of Agadir, a 30 minutes drive from Agadir, on the route to Essaouira, spectacular and uncommon dinosaur footprints were uncovered. They were discovered in 2013 and, in the case of the latest one, in 2015. They can be found for around 300 m on cliffs that are flush only with the ground. The structure is Morocco’s most remarkable of its sort.
Visit during low tide, especially during February and August, when the sand hasn’t covered the footprints! They were thought to be traces left by storks, according to common belief… The truth was revealed in 2013, when a particularly high surge slammed the Atlantic shore, resulting in the release of over 200 footprints in great quantities and in perfect condition.

Pterosaurs were animals that could fly. Researchers estimate the dinosaurs whose footprints have been discovered lived 85 million years ago in Anza, even during Upper Cretaceous Period, namely the Santonian Period.
