"A home away from home "

When I arrived I was extremely happy with the accommodation. A cosy house nestled right on the edge of the rocks overlooking the sea. Two beautiful and cosy terraces. There’s not a place in the house where you can’t hear the soothing sound of the sea. It was perfect. The top terrace caught the sun all day and the bottom terrace (where we ate our amazing meals) was cosy and created some shaded seating area. Reda, Julia and the rest of the staff were faultless from start to finish. It was honestly like I slotted right in as part of one big family - they couldn’t do enough for you. Such a lovely atmosphere. Mohammed and Francis were great surf instructors and Jeanekke taught some amazing yoga sessions. I only stayed for five days but I would without a doubt go back and recommend it to anyone - absolutely fantastic value for money.

"Lovely stay (if you're in the main house)"

Positive vibes. The hosts, instructors and guests interact as one big family and take care of the guests.

When there are concerns or someone is in need, the hosts are trying their best to act upon them.

I highly recommend coming here.

"Beautiful stay in Taghazout"

I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Surf Coast Morocco. The hosts were very helpful with everything, there is a warm, home atmosphere, dedicated surfing and yoga teachers and absolutely amazing view over the ocean. Meals are eaten at a long table, with homemade food, that tasted heavenly. Definitely a place to visit and revisit. In addition the waves have been great for surfing. And temperature very nice and warm in January. I will miss the town and the people who run this place.

"A warm welcome in Morocco"

From the moment Reda picked me up at the airport I knew I was in safe hands. The staff at the hostel were so friendly and accommodating and encouraged everyone to mingle, there was a real family vibe going on from the offset. The yoga classes were perfectly paced for pre and post surf/excursion and the tuition was second to none, many non surfers left with the surfing bug!

"INcredible trip "

This was such a fantastic holiday and I highly recommend it! I went on my own, so was a little apprehensive, but there is such an incredibly warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere that I felt part of the group very quickly. The yoga is perfect, and the surfing was great! The instructors are fun and very patient. The best thing is eating each meal together, and getting to know each other over dinner. This was one of my favourite holidays and i highly recommend it!

"The Merriest Surf Christmas "

I had the most wonderful time, I can't say enough good things about my experience at Surf Coast. I stayed there over Christmas and was treated like a guest in their home! The food was plentiful and delicious!! OMG the beef, apricot and prune tagine!

When I arrived they took me to a cosy little private room on the terrace, overlooking the ocean. The morning and evening yoga sessions were fantastic, with Rachael (the yoga instructor) taking us through a mixture of relaxing and challenging routines. We started one morning with an acro-yoga session on the beach and then ran into the ocean afterwards! There's simply no better way to wake you up and get you ready for the surf!

The surf instruction was perfection with Muhammad and Frances providing hands-on and knowledgable instruction. They are both such laid back and wonderful people! Every person that was working at surf coast was an absolute gem and I loved how guests and staff hung out together in the common areas, making music, singing and dancing!

Thank you for a beautiful alternative Christmas experience! I'd love to return again!

"Not ideal. "

The location was beautiful. The apartment we rented through Surf Coast was well situated with a stunning view. A very attentive local guarded the place night and day. The yoga instructors were wonderful. The surf instruction was also quite good.

"Lovely chilled out place to learn to surf"

The place was right next to the beach which provided a beautiful setting for the yoga classes on the terrace.

Everything was provided for the guests including day trips so no need to organise anything yourself.

The surf and yoga teaching was excellent.

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.

"Phenomenal retreat in Taghazout!"

Everything was top notch at Surf Coast Morocco from the yoga taught by Kris/Amy on the beautiful rooftop terrace morning and night, to our awesome surf instructor, Mohammed. Both instructors were patient, and I learned so much about myself. It was the perfect setting to relax and take it at your own pace. You definitely have to go with the flow with things and just embrace the culture because its a super chill place and I had to learn to just trust that it will work out. I was also very impressed with the food at every meal. You definitely won't go hungry and there's always a huge variety of things to eat.

I came to Taghazout to relax and not have to worry about anything, and that's exactly what happened. The beach house is absolutely stunning and I had my own room on the top floor. I fell asleep to the sound of waves on the beach and woke up to the same sound with brilliant sunshine, it was blissful. Anything we needed was always handled by Reda and he made sure we were always comfortable and well taken care of. He went above and beyond to meet our needs, always driving us to different surf spots and day trips (in the coolest Back to the Future car you have ever seen!), and I can't thank the Surf Coast Morocco team enough for such an unforgettable experience.

Staff were lovely, friendly and very accommodating. The place is clean and has a lovely roof top terrace to chill out and where you can spend time with other guests, play cards, listen to music etc. The yoga teacher was also excellent (and I do yoga).

"Already want to go back"

A perfect week from beginning to end... Beautiful clean accomodation, fabulous healthy food, waking up to the sound of the waves... Taghazout is a relaxed place while still being in another interesting culture, making you forget your everyday stress at home. Heartful, welcoming people all around. Hostel staff was amazing, listening to any wish you could have. You literally can let go the time you are there... everything just gets fixed for you! We dropped the day trips to Agadir and Paradise Valley because we were too crazy about surfing :), and actually we found enough presents to bring home by strolling through the streets of Taghazout instead of going to Agadir market. You have to visit the local hamam, we really liked that experience!

As a surf spot, Taghazout will not disappoint you whether you're beginner or pro level. Yoga lessons on the rooftop are a relief to your hurting body after fighting in the waves... We want to thank especially Mohammad and Master of Halli Galli Lahoucien :) and Francesc for inspiring us, as well as yoga teacher Olivia. So many good people we met that it is hard to believe we just spent one week there! Miss you guys!!! Love!!! Nadja and Maria

"Great place with great people"

I had an amazing time at Surf Coast Morocco. Reda and Julia were super helpful and went way above and beyond what I expected, the hosting was awesome. Samira's food was also amazing and it was great to eat authentic Moroccan food. Mohammed made the surf lessons very fun and really helped me with my surfing. Loved the roof terrace and Julie's yoga classes.

"All Wanderlusts Must Visit Here!!"

Tucked away in an ornate coastal town you will find Surf Coast Morocco perfectly located on beach. Fall asleep every night to the peaceful waves crashing & wake up every morning to the most spectacular sunrises. This location is everything to live for. A true must visit. The staff became more like family to me as I was travelling alone. Reda, Khalid, Mohammed (both of them), surf instructor Abash, and yoga instructors Nastya & Amy. A gentle group who embraces everyone. They made sure that every aspect of my stay was comfortable from food, to linens, to atmosphere, to cultural experiences, to laughs and everything in between. I was inspired and will definitely be back to visit this beautiful country! Thank you so much Surf Coast Morocco!

"Amazing holiday"

It was one of the best holidays. Accommodation is cozy and comfortable. Food is good. But the best part was to meet great people. It was my first surfing experience. I had help and support all the time. Now I am waiting for next holidays to come back there to surf and see again my new friends.

"Amazing Surf- and Yoga Holidays"

I loved the atmosphere at Surf Coast Morocco. The group was small and the staff took really good care of us and always tried everything to fulfill all our wishes. The days typically started with a morning yoga class and breakfast afterwards. When we were finished we went to look for the beach with the best waves and surfing conditions and stayed there till the evening. Our surf teacher Mohammed was amazing and did an excellent job explaining us everything we needed in order to get started in the water and improve our surfing skills. The evening yoga class usually took place at sunset time with an amazing view over the ocean and ended with a Shavasana under the stars. The yoga teacher Kris was simply the best - she adapted all the yoga classes perfectly to our needs. Being very passionate about what she is doing, she even offered 1:1 sessions for those who have had some injuries or needed special assistance.

Another highlight was the food, we had a different dish every day and it was always very delicious.

"Perfect holidays !"

Definitely one of my best holidays. I didn't expect that it would be soooo nice. Perfect organization, perfect food. Thanks to Mohammed who taught me some many new things in surf so I really improved my surf level in 15 days. Thanks to Kris who taught Yoga in a so nice way <3. The beach house towards the ocean allowed me to fall asleep in a perfect mood every night, listening to the waves (and I miss it soo much in Paris), every end of afternoon enjoying the sunset of the rooftop with the others guest and this AMAZING staff team that paid a lot of attention to everyone. We had a looot of fun together and I will miss them (until the next time I come back :D). Every day a new day a perfect day. Go for it guys.

Had one of the best trips with Reda at Surf Coast Morocco, he went over the top to be accommodating to all requests and help to arrange other activities outside of what was included in the package. Youssef our surf instructor was absolutely great at giving out pointer and even showed off a few of his own tricks. The day trip to Paradise valley was one of the high points of the entire trip. Could not more highly recommend this trip.

My stay with surf coast morocco was amazing. I was there for two weeks at the beginning of September and I had the best time. I was looking for a yoga retreat and found this one which offered yoga and surf so I thought I would give surf a go too and it was the best decision I took. I wasn't very lucky at the beginning as I was supposed to land in Agadir and my plane got diverted to Marrakech because of a sandstorm.The manager of Surf Coast Morocco, Reda, waited for me in Agadir from 5pm to 1am, he didn't even seem to be annoyed, he drove me to the hostel in Taghazout and stopped on the way to buy me food as I hadn't eaten all evening. The people in the hostel were so nice, they cooked amazing traditional Moroccan food every evening and they even asked what we wanted to eat and followed our requests. It was delicious every time.

We had yoga in the morning at 8, then breakfast, then we would go surfing from about 10:30 to 4 pm, then yoga again at 6. One day I had surfed for so long (I chose to do that, they let you rest whenever you want) that the next day my legs were so sore I couldn't surf. Reda drove me to a massage place where my muscles could relax while the others went surfing. He was always doing his best to make everyone happy and he always drove us wherever we wanted to go.

I didn't feel like I was part of an organized trip as everyone was so cool, I felt like I was on holidays with friends.

We had a lot of different yoga teachers which allowed us to explore different styles of yoga.

I can't believe I started with any experience at all in surfing and after two weeks I had learned how to turn and I surfed a couple of big waves.

I am really happy I did this retreat. It was the perfect holiday: sport, fun, some night outs and I got to discover and experience Moroccan culture which is beautiful. People are so nice and welcoming. Reda and the others at the hostel take very good care of their guests.

I didn't know what to expect, when I started my trip, and a lot of things were different to what I imagined, but I had the best time on a vacation EVER. I was a little confused after my long journey when I was dropped off at the hostel, which looked different to the pictures of the retreat, I saw before. But since I was traveling alone and booked a shared room, it was the best way to feel like being part of the community from the first moment on. I stayed a whole week to do some Yoga and learn how to surf but I got a lot more. Reda was the best host, you can imagine. We were talking every day about what to do or what to see and he was taking care of everything. It felt like having a djin with unlimited wishes. We had trips to the souk, hammam, paradise valley or a party at a nearby beach hotel. We always had a great time at the beach, although it was off-season and you had to be patient to wait for the good waves. The food at the hostel was always fresh, local and very tasty. Every night we finished dinner with a tea ceremony and the cook was always interested in what cravings the guests had (since I'm a dessert-person he made us fruit salad some of the nights!) Although I was travelling alone for the first time in my life, I never felt alone or lonely. I met so many nice and interesting people and everybody else felt the same hospitality as I did. I will for sure come back some day.

Taghazout is magical. It was my favourite place in Morocco by far. The hostel I stayed in was less than a 10 second walk to the main street, from the terrace you could check the surf at 3 different beaches. The atmosphere was great too with communal dinners every night with the most delicious Moroccan meals being prepared so freshly. What made this experience so outstanding was the unbelievable hospitality that was shown to me by all the staff including Reda, the surf instructors, the hostel staff and the yoga instructor. As a solo traveler they welcomed me so graciously and made me feel like family. They were able to help me with anything I needed and were so happy to do so. I was driven anywhere I needed to go including which beach was best to surf on that day. Some of my best memories are cruising down the coast with the windows down and a stack of about 5 boards on the roof of a small car. I spent a day out in Paradise Valley jumping of the high cliffs into deep blue swimming holes. On the way out there we stopped in at an Argan oil farm and saw how it is made which is something you need to do if your going to by any of this magical oil. The surf in Taghazout was perfect for me to learn on when I was there (in May) and the boards and wetsuits were in good condition. Taghazout is such a small place it only took a few days for me to feel like I already knew most people. Overall this was the high light of my trip and I loved every second of it. It had a very relaxed feel so I could choose what I wanted to do each day. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Morocco.
