Instruction in English

The retreat will take place at Tafedna Bay which is on the west coast of Morocco between Essaouira and Agadir. Come and relax in a hammock under the Argan tree or have your morning coffee on the terrace with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Offering incredible sunsets over the Atlantic with camels, donkeys and goats wandering past, you are sure to experience a true Moroccan holiday. It is a well-hidden fishermen's village where you can experience the peaceful landscape of the mountains and the beach itself.

You can easily pamper your body and clear your mind in this magical place. Picture yourself sitting on the beach and meditating with the sound of the sea. Let the soft wind blow all the negative thoughts out of your mind. Taste the local flavors and feed your eyes with thousands of colors. And last but not least: it's all about surfing - the private bay offers you loads of great waves to ride. A couple of right handed points, some long and mellow, some powerful and hollow. Loads of punchy beach breaks along the bay make it a perfect beginners spot. The best part though no crowds. You can surf the best swells for days and its only you and your best buddies.

Tafedna Bay is located on the west coast of Morocco between Essaouira and Agadir. It is a well-hidden fishermen's village where you can experience the peaceful landscape of the mountains and the beach itself.

The camp is situated 40 minutes from Essaouira, directly on the beach. All the buildings and facilities were constructed from locally sourced natural building materials, including rocks from the valley, limestone, natural pigment, hand-made fabric from goat and camel fur, hay, mud bricks, and local Argan wood.

It is also a perfect spot to ride the waves. No crowd, just you and your board. After riding you can sit around the fire on the beach and finish the day with contemplating, smiling, with cheerful thoughts or you can have a few drinks enjoying the sunset from the terrace bar.
