When is the best time to visit Morocco

Best time to go

With a coastline of 1,835 kilometers long, it’s a matter of being at the right place at the right time. The fairly hot winters and summers, and the cool breeze off the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea on the coast, make Morocco a great surf country during most months of the year.

The best months to surf in Morocco, anywhere along the coastline, are September and October with its first winter swells and absence of wind. It’s best to avoid surfing in Morocco at the end of March and in April as there’s a constant shore wind and lots of rain.

In the winter months, the area around Taghazout and Agadir is known for its good surfing conditions between December to beginning of March. In the summer months, travel northwards to the area Oualidia, Casablanca, and to the north of Rabat for better surf conditions.

Surfing in Morocco: What You Need to Know

Morocco is for you if:

  • You want to learn to surf in an affordable and culturally-rich location
  • You wish to explore charming surf towns and uncrowded waves
  • You are up for long rides in point break heaven
  • Why go surfing in Morocco?

    As soon as it starts to get colder in Europe, Morocco is where you need to escape. Its Atlantic coastline is blessed with over 300 days of sunshine per year, long-period groundswells, and strong winds. There are sheltered beach breaks, exposed point breaks, and tricky reef breaks that cater to every surfer’s needs.

    Is Morocco a good place to learn to surf?

    Morocco is a swell magnet. Although the peak surf season is from October to April, the breaks pump gentle waves for beginners all year round. Furthermore, Morocco’s quaint fishing towns are renowned for their surf culture, and are dotted with surf camps, surf shops, and beachfront cafés for a hassle-free holiday.

    Where should you go if you are a beginner surfer?

    The sheltered beach break at Essaouira is considered the best place to learn to surf in Morocco. You will find excellent beginner surf spots at Sidi Kaouki just south of Essaouira, The Bay in Imsouane, La Source and Panoramas in Taghazout, Banana Beach and Devil’s Rock in Tamraght.

    Where should you go if you are an intermediate surfer?

    Surfers looking to amp up their skills will get a kick out of riding the legendary point breaks in Morocco, located between Essaouira and Agadir. Cathedral Point in Imsouane, Tamri, Desert Point in Tiguert, Mysteries and Hash Point in Taghazout are great places to get barreled for the first time.

    Where should you go if you are an advanced surfer?

    If you are looking for tricky and punchy right-handers, head for Safi, Boiler’s and Dracula’s in Tiguert, Killer Point and Anchor Point in Taghazout, the country’s most challenging breaks. During winter months, their powerful, fast, and hollow waves throw heavy barrels and offer incredibly long rides.
