Surf spots

Tamri is a a 45 minutes drive from Tamraght. With current often strong, it is a surf spot for all levels depending on conditions. Beautiful sandy beach, near the village of Tamri, ideal for a tagine lunch break. Imsouane has reef and beach breaks. You can enjoy surf in the heart of a fishing village, quiet and isolated. There are two surf spots; the bay and cathedral. All levels, but watch out for changing conditions.

Draculas is 35 minutes from Tamraght. Awesome surf spot, incredible right only for very good surfers because paddle out and coming in can be difficult. Anchor Point is 15 minutes from Tamraght with right and left waves. With good swell, the wave can be over 200 meters. Delicate paddle out and for expert surfers only. Devil’s Rock is In Tamraght, 800 meters from the surf camp. Beach break, but beware of some rocks. It has right and left for all levels.

Other surf spots in the area are boillers, killer point, la source, mysteries, panorama, crocodile, banana point, hash point, the 12, the 11, anza, spider, Agadir bay, tifnit, aglou, mirleft, and sidi kaoki.

Depending to weather conditions, one day surfing can be replaced by a trip to Paradise Valley with tajine in the oasis for lunch and a swim in the natural wadi pools. This beautiful oasis is located about forty minutes drive from Tamraght in the Atlas Mountains. You will spend an exciting and unique day; swimming in natural pools with water slides and rock jumps, then lunch in the palm grove, and for the more adventurous, there are short discovery trails to explore.

Morocco is a prime location with glorious sunshine and warm temperatures all year round, sandy beaches, and an endless coastline of surf spots for all levels. It is a dream surf destination with waves for all abilities. Whether your are looking for rolling 10 foot points, endless, mellow, six foot walls, or the perfect wave to learn, Morocco has it all

The Tamraght and Tagazhout region is blessed with a multi aspect coastline, which means on any given day a wide range of waves can be found to suit all level of abilities. Tamraght and Tagazhout are two Moroccan Berbere surf villages with small shops and beach front cafes, located right next to Agadir at 40 kilometers from its international airport, where many airlines, including low cost ones, land every day from Europe. This makes Agadir a perfect, easy to reach destination any time of year and at affordable prices. From there, you will soon be right in the middle of the surfing action!

Horseback or camel riding

Experience the sunset on the beach on a ride setting out from Aourir towards Taghazout - an extraordinary and compelling experience. The price is 30 EUR per person for two hours.

Essaouira Medina

Formerly known as Mogador (from the Phoenician word Migdol which means 'small fortres'), it is an outstanding example of an eighteenth century fortified city, surrounded by Vauban style walls and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Marrakech

At the foot of the Atlas Mountains, is home to impressive architectural masterpieces and Moroccan art (ramparts, monumental gates, the Koutoubia Mosque, Saadian tombs, Badiâ palace ruins, Bahia Palace, Menara pond, and pavilion). Each one is an outstanding example of Moroccan heritage in itself that can all be visited in a day.

Traditional Moroccan Hammam

This oriental ritual that originates from Roman times is a staple in the lives of Moroccans. The baths are both a social meeting place and a place to relax, enriching both the mind and body. This is an experience you should not miss while you are in Morocco. The hot steam dilates blood vessels and helps the body to relax. Rough skin floats away, toxins are eliminated, muscle pain alleviated, and your stress released. Perfect after a day of surfing! The price is 20 EUR per session.

Yoga

Yoga is a way of life that, over time, will help you connect with your inner strength, breathe deeper, and realize the kind of bliss that only riding a wave can provide. The physical benefits of yoga also complement the flexibility and power needed to have maximum fun and prevent injuries when surfing. Enjoy yoga sessions with professionals who know how to combine the benefits of yoga with surfing.

Experience the pleasure of a one hour massage with Argan oil. Argan oil comes from the argan tree, found in Morocco and western Algeria, mainly in the southwest of Morocco between Agadir, Essaouira, and Taroudant and around Tindouf in Algeria. It is widely used in traditional cooking, but it is also used for its beneficial cosmetic properties as it is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants.

    "First up Morrocco is safe, I have to be honest everyone was worried about my coming here, it was unfounded in my experience. I've surfed in Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, California, France - Tamracht is the most flexible surfing I've had. It offers a massive choice of breaks in a compact area. The huge advantage of that is the choice it gives you. Wanna chill? Stay at your level. Wanna push it? Sabine's guides - Redouaine and Janux - are professional, truly professional, they focus on precision and they find the right break for you that day. Accom is authentic Morroccan at the riad, warm, funny people, the only hotel with a pool, amazing Tajine (authetic Morroccan food), big beds, breezy rooms. Tamracht offers a easy, get away for surfers of all levels. It's within striking distance of Marakesh and I'm off to stay in the desert. I came for three weeks and stayed for seven! "

  • Review by Ahmad P. from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

    "Initially, I was planning to stay at Magic Surf for one week, somehow I stayed there for two weeks, and if it wasn't for work, I would have stayed even longer, this is how I fell in love with this place. Magic Surf's team consists of Sabine, Radwan, Tori, I'll try to write what I think about each one of them briefly. Sabine has successfully created a very friendly, social environment at the camp, which is important, especially if you are travelling solo as I did. If you think that the packed lunches by the beach are just simple sandwiches, let me tell you that you are wrong. Sabine puts a lot of time and effort into the beach lunches, they are always tasty and well prepared, I still dream about the potato salad she did one day, YUM. Radwan, AKA Rad is by far the best surfing instructor, I've ever had, I am sure this guy can make a child start surfing before even walking. That was not my first time surfing, but the last time I surfed was a year ago, so I was still a beginner, but after two weeks I believe I became more of an intermediate surfer thanks to Radwan. Besides, he is a very cool guy to hang out with, and he is funny and full of life, just being around him made me happy. Last but not least we have Tori, the yoga instructor. I had my first yoga class ever with her, and it was a great experience, I highly recommend doing yoga with her your entire stay there. Sabine and Radwan, have big personalities, Tori, on the other hand, Tori balances things out, after all, she is the yogi, and that reflects in her personality and lifestyle. Overall, I had a great stay with Magic Surf and the team, and will come back again for sure"

    "I feel the pull of the ocean pulling me back, back to Magic Surf Morocco even though I've only just been there. I arrived there completely without any surf experience and got to the stage where I could consistently pick a wave and get up on a board thanks to the expert tutelage of champion surfer Jalal. It's a lot of work but well worth the effort once you master it. Physically I'm not sure how I would have coped if not for yoga with Tori. She is an excellent teacher taking us through a wide range of yoga styles depending on what we felt we needed; power, restorative, relaxation and more. As the week drew on we seemed to need more and more restorative yoga and it was just the tonic. We did yoga twice a day, sometimes on the terrace into sunrise, once on the beach at sunset- fantastic. Our amazing hostess Sabine organized everything and took care of us the whole time making sure we got the best of everything the area has to offer. The barbecue on the beach was spectacular. Everyone should do yoga, everyone should surf, let's face it- everyone should go to Magic Surf."

  • Review by Alex D. from Reading, UK

    "Four of us traveled to Agadir and it was tough to find a place to stay, purely because there is so much choice! After much research and many emails, we chose Magic surf. It was definitely the right choice! its perfectly positioned between Agadir and Taghazoute and wasn't too busy. From the start it all went smoothly. We were met at the airport by Omar who drove us to the Riad (hotel) via the bank to convert our money (under the advice of Sabine as you get a better rate outside the airport) and the market to buy some beer and wine. On arrival, Zak, was waiting for us to show us to our room and offered us a meal for that evening. Turns out for 70 dirhams you get a three course meal with mint tea at the end! The following day, after breakfast, we met Zak again and he took us to Taghazoute to collect the boards and car we hired for the week. Zak was more then happy to help with anything we needed over the week. From advice about local breaks too directions to the souk in Agadir. Nothing was too much to ask. He was also around for surf guiding and lessons if we wanted them.The Riad staff were also great- welcoming and great fun to be around. All in all, an incredible trip, made by magic surf. Would definitely recommend and will be going back."

    "We stayed at the Surfcamp for a week and absolutely loved it! we made a surf guiding tour and Magic Surfcamp Morocco showed us all the wonderful and amazing surf places in Morocco. We ate lots of traditional food and had a great vibe. The camp is wonderful, with a nice pool and an amazing roof terrace with sea view. Thank you for the great experience. See you very soon."

    "Had a brilliant week over the New Year with Magic Surf Camp. I was initially worried if my seven year old son would enjoy himself but Zak the surf instructor was excellent with him and now my son can't wait to back. Nothing was too much trouble for Sabine and Zak and it was more like staying with friends from the offset. Accommodation and food was great as was the day trip to Paradise Valley. Zak and Sabine have excellent knowledge of the local area and will make sure that you are taken to a break that will be suitable for your level. We couldn't have asked for more and will definitely be returning and if you're thinking of going surfing/staying with a surf camp then I highly recommend Magic Surf."

  • Review by Malin O. from Västernorrlands Län, Sweden

    "Me and my boyfriend went to Agadir to just have a few relaxing days at the end of our stay in Morocco. Magic Surf Morocco really gave us everything that we wished for during our stay there. An easy hotel, fun activities during the days including a day trip to a beautiful place called Paradise, surfing and yoga. They had really good local knowledge and always knew the best places to take us. Also, they were very friendly and really cared about us. It got a little chilly sometimes at night in Agadir even if we went in summertime, so make sure bring an extra sweatshirt for when the sun sets if you go out to eat at night or something. Also, make sure to be prepared for 'Moroccan time' - if they tell you dinner at 19:00 at the hotel it might as well mean 21:00 - you never really know. But that is part of the charm with the relaxed lifestyle. Also, make sure to do yoga - it feels wonderful after a full day of surfing. I recommend to travel with Magic Surf Morocco - they know what they are doing and always keep their word. We have a lovely stay!"

    "The surfing and yoga was great. Zak and Sabine are friendly and welcoming. Zak is an excellent instructor and his passion and patience is really encouraging. He takes the time to find the most suitable swell for the surfer's abilities. When you're not surfing or doing yoga, there is time to explore Agadir and surrounding locations. A day trip to Paradise Valley is a wonderful highlight on the days that aren't great for surfing. The accommodation was a clean, safe and authentic Moroccan riad. The rooftop terrace was great for yoga, and the beach is close by and suitable for beginner surfers. The team that works at the riad mostly speak french, so it can be helpful to know some french, but not essential. It is a social place and you can meet other tourists over meals in the court yard, talk about surf, life and all things nice. I would recommend bringing some ear plugs as there are two mosques in the village and the call to prayer starts early, and there isn't AC so sleeping with the windows open can be noisy too. Other than that, it was a friendly place and I look forward to returning some day."
