Surf spots

11 kilometers

Left hand wave which is close to the surf house and most of the time it is not busy. 11 kilometers is a point break where you can improve your surf in low tide and high tide.

12 kilometers

It’s a nice wave at a sandy beach and it’s not too powerful. In 12 kilometers you can find an easy left and right hand wave for beginners and intermediates.

Devil's rock

this point is right in front the village of Tamraght. Good waves for all surf levels, offering punchy lefts and rights with a mainly sandy bottom. When big swells wash the sand banks away, you can notice the rocks for a couple of weeks before the sand banks build up again. It can get very crowded.

Panorama

A sand bottom point break, quiet and very beautiful place, great for beginners. With it’s fast hollow right-hander sections, be sure to get a good rush at this spot.

Hash point

There are better waves in the region and this is one of the most fickle breaks out there (working only on a westerley swell and at mid to high tides). That being said, the fact that it is in the center of Taghazout means that it is so easy to get to that you will always find yourself having a cheeky little session on it.

Anchor point

A great surfing point and the most crowded. Very big waves that are known throughout Morocco, which produces a long right-hander peeling off the rocks. An endless succession of long mellow speed walls.

Mysteries

A surfing point where anyone can hang out in a friendly atmosphere. The right hand section provides a nice ride especially on the incoming high tide. The ideal swell angle is from the northwest.

La sourse

Fresh water springs bubble up from the onshore rock formations forming ‘the Well’, providing performance walls and a high lifting a-frame, perfect for all levels of surfing abilities.

Killer point

Deep water right hand point break. Best on large north eastern swells and low to mid tides with long walls breaking from the outside across the bay.

Draculas

Vampire teeth shaped rocks give the name to this big swell handler. A fast right hander pushes some punchy often large sets, definitely not for the faint hearted, known as boilers evil twin.

Boilers

This place is a right hand reef break with different conditions in onshore and offshore with clean conditions. It’s next to dracula’s. You can surf boilers in high tide and in low tide.

Tamri

A sandy beach break and a strong currents. For beginners, just be aware how far you have drifted down the coast. Works on different tides depending on how the banks are and also on the swell.

Imessouane

Sharp rocks and sand, very good waves for all levels. Right hand point break and high tides with north-easterly winds. If the spot works well, it’s beautiful. Sometimes the whole beach works, not just the point, so there’s space for everyone.

Tifnit

Tifnit a great local fishing village famous for its cave houses “grots”, and probably one of the best swell magnets in the area of Agadir. This little gem can make your trip worth while with its miles of empty breaks and wild beaches. With a number of reef’s beaches and slabs along this coast, there is a wave for everyone.

This surf retreat will take place in a small fishing village of Taghazout 19 kilometers north of the city Agadir in the south west of Morocco. Taghazout Bay gives you ideal conditions for learning and improving your surfing, not just for the different kind of beach breaks you can find, but also for the weather and sunny days nearly 365 days a year. It is close to surf spots such as panorama, hash, and anchor point, perfect for surf beginners to intermediates and professionals.

Breakfast

Let the sunshine in your heart and start your surfing day with a delicious Moroccan and continental breakfast on their terraces:

Lunch

The lunch package will be served at the beach. Enjoy a fresh made salad or sandwich filled with fish, meat or cheese, vegetables, and delicious fruits as dessert. Take a good break and listen to the sound of the waves while eating!

Dinner

After a long day of surfing and activities at the beach, a delicious dinner of international and Moroccan cuisine with hot tagines, fish or meat, veggies, and fresh bread will wait for you on their beautiful terraces. Once a week, all the guests are invited for a barbecue.

Using fresh and healthy ingredients is their priority, so you can start your next day with a smile and full of energy. If you have any food intolerance or allergies, please feel free to inform Surf Coast Morocco.

If you feel like a break from surfing or for those of you who don’t surf, then horse and camel riding and quad biking are all close by and easily organized. For those who’d like to relax, there are miles of empty golden sandy beaches to discover or you can sunbath and chill out in the privacy of the villa or your apartment.

Agadir

Agadir is a major modern city in the southern part of Morocco. It is of interest primarily because of its location, as it is surrounded by the Anti Atlas, the Sahara desert on the Atlantic coast with many national parks, and secluded beaches which are all easily accessible.

El Gezira

Amazing red cliffs of El Gezira in Mirleft, a tiny town with beautiful sandy beaches.

Essaouira

A large fishing harbor, the old medina with its fortified walls and a long sandy beach. Enjoy the french flair and take your time to explore Essaouiras rich culture: diverse art galleries, spice markets, and the easy-going local people.

Marrakech

Feel the magic and oriental vibe of the Red City where Moroccan tradition meets modernity.

Paradise Valley

This inland gorge is another great outdoor recreation destination near Agadir. Mountain trails lead to Berber villages and waterfalls at Ida Ouatanane tumble off the cliffs during the spring. The winding gorge is filled with palm trees, and the chance to visit a traditional Berber village is a real treat. It’s a full day trip, but well worth the effort.

    "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 traveller 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."

    "I stayed with Surf Coast Morocco as a solo traveller - my first solo holiday abroad and my first time surfing, so I was unsure of what to expect. I couldn't have been made to feel more at home. I stayed at the camp's (much smaller and quieter) accommodation in Tamraght, which is a nice little fishing village on a hill a few minutes away from Tagazhout, where the camp's busier and bigger house is based. The Tagazhout house is from what I understand a bit more of a party and communal experience, with more organized events based from there in the evenings, and may better suit people who fancy the fun of staying in a backpacker dorm with a large crowd. For my money though Tamraght is a more idyllic location and the smaller group in the house (just one other visitor plus me, at the off-season time I went, together with our live-in host Julia) was for me the perfect size (helped by the fact that we all got on so well!). The house is clean and cosily furnished and a quick drive down to the beach. What really sets Surf Coast Morocco apart however is the hosting. You are treated absolutely as if you are a family guest. My booking, for example, included all three meals - this turned out to mean that our host Julia or others from the camp would prepare us a different spread each day of fresh traditional Moroccan food, often on request or with snacks of our choice. We were driven everywhere by the extremely accommodating staff on the team - from the beaches to the souks, to the Tagazhout house for classes - and again the attitude taken was that if you say you want to go somewhere (within reason!) one of the hosts will be happy to make it happen and drive you there. There was no additional charge whatsoever for these kind of outings, which I'm sure must be unusual on camps of this kind. Overall a really special stay, and one I would highly recommend. The Tamraght house in particular was perfect for a solo traveller looking to discover a new hobby (unlimited surfing and classes all day!) and make new friends."

    "It was really nice to stay over at Surf Coast Morroco. Rooms (with bathroom) are clean and equiped in necessary stuff (wardobe, sheets, etc). We also had terrance (with ocean view) Wi-Fi and AC in our room. Food is deliscious - you can be sure that you will have chance to taste variety of local specialities (tajin, couscous, berber omlette, mint tea). Beach is five minutes form hostel. Last but not least - people. We have great host - Rida who is really easy going and helpful fellow. You can be sure that eveything will be settled and any additional request most likely will be fulfilled."
