One of the best places to visit in Morocco for a surf holiday is Taghazout.

How to get there?

Taghazout is a tiny fishing and surf village located 30 kms north of the city, Agadir (Southern Morocco). Agadir has many cheap flights coming in from various European cities. Agadir also connects by road to cities like Marrakech (3 hours drive), Casablanca (5 hours drive). You can book a bus from these major cities to Agadir here.

Best Surf Season

Surfing Holidays Morocco, surfer at Anchor Point Taghazout
Anchor Point in Taghazout is great wave for the experienced surfer. The long right hand point break offers multiple sections, with rides over 300m.

For beginners all year round, but the very best months are in summer (June-August), when the waves are not big, the ocean is warmer, and the waves are not crowded.

For experienced surfers, if you really want to surf world-class waves, then October to March are the best months to book a surf trip to Morocco.

This time of the year is when the Atlantic storms lights up the point breaks, and you will see some of the best waves in the world. Just remember to bring your wetsuit (at least 3/2 steamer) as it is much colder during these months..

Best Surf Spots

Surf Holidays Morocco, surfing at Hash Point, Taghazout
Hash Point in Taghazout, offers some long rides for both beginner and intermediate surfers.

Taghazout Bay is a typical right-hand point break surf destination, where the Atlantic swells spit out world-class waves peeling off the rocks from Anchor Point all the way to Panoramas beach.

During the winter swells, the bay sees simultaneous point and beach breaks thereby offering something for all surf levels.

Experienced surfers tend to stick with the point breaks such as Anchor Point, Hash Point, Panorama Point, Boilers, Draculas, and Banana Point.

The most famous point is Anchor Point where most surfers usually jump off the rocks to paddle out to the main peak. This is a classic long point break which can break for over 200 metres.

Intermediate and beginners are often found practicing in the whitewash around these point breaks or on the many beautiful beaches surrounding Taghazout.

The best spots to surf for a beginner or intermediate are; Mysteries, Beach, Panorama Beach, Crocro Beach, Devils’ Rock Beach break, and Banana Beach. Each of these beach breaks offer a nice point break as well.

For the brave hearted surfer, there are some empty waves to be surfed at spots like Boilers, Draculas, and Tamri. Tamri Beach is a rather tricky surf spot with a river current flowing into the ocean, which makes it rather difficult to paddle out.

The strong winds from the north can also collide with the winds from the south thereby making the conditions a bit choppy. On such days, not may are seen surfing, but rather playing Beach Football along with the local population.

My travels as a professional surfer have taken me from my little home on the South Coast of N.S.W, Australia to over 40+ countries worldwide and counting. Surfing some of the most famous and remote waves in the world. I have had many highlights in my career, winning Australian titles, coming 5th on the ASP ( now known as the WSL) World Tour in 2005, numerous wins and finals, and beating some of the best surfers in the world including Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning and Andy Irons. Surfing and traveling is all I have known since I was 13 years old.
