With some excellent beaches, gorgeous weather, and perfect waves, Morocco is a surfer’s paradise.
Working hand-in-hand with Surf Barrel Flavor, an excellent surf school, our surf and south Morocco tour is built for those who want to try out the excellent waves on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. We also make time to explore some of the highlights of Morocco.
There’s a variety of things to see during your stay, including trips to some of the best landmarks in the area, camel rides on the edge of the Sahara, and visits to the traditional Berber camps. Morocco’s best surfing season is between late September and April, so if you’re planning on taking this trip, get in touch us to work out the best dates.
Day 1: Pick up from Agadir–Al Massira Airport and transfer to the Surf Camp
After your arrival at Agadir–Al Massira Airport, we’ll pick you up and take you over to the surf camp where you’ll be staying for the first half of the tour. The surf camp surf house is typically decorated in the Moroccan style, with exceptional views overlooking the well-known surf spots (Panorama Beach, Anchor Point, Crocodile Beach, Hash Point) of the great South, and all are less than a 5-minute drive away from where you’re staying.
You’ll find all the usual comforts of home too, including clean showers, satellite TV, and wifi access.
Day 2-3: Surf Camp in Taghazout
Days 2 and 3 are spent relaxing at the surf house, catching the waves, and spending time exploring the fishing village. A typical surf day starts at 10 a.m. when we all head to the best surf spot of the day. A 2-hour surf lesson is given by the surf coaches to the group. Then after that everyone goes in the water to practice what they have learned.
The surf coaches will keep an eye on everyone, offering help when needed until around 5 p.m. when the group returns to the surf house in Taghazout to relax. Although Taghazout is quite small, there’s plenty of things to do in addition to surfing, including weekly markets, BBQs, and trips to the nearby hammam (bathhouse).
