Hot sunshine, powerful waves, beautiful landscapes, and teeming market places… just a few of the things that has drawn surfers to Morocco’s shores for decades.  If you are thinking about where to book your next surf holiday for the winter months, then Morocco has got a lot to offer.  If you haven’t been there before, you are going to be spoiled.  Unlike northern Europe in the winter months, Morocco manages to keep balmy temperatures of 20 degrees C during the daytime, but cooler in the evening so you can still wrap up warm and relax for a post surf snooze.
 
If you feel the lure of the sub-tropical climate and near perfect waves is working its magic on you, then check out our easy guide for the best surf in our favourite surf towns:
 
  • 1- Beginners Spots

If there’s one place you visit for surf in Morocco it is Taghazout.  The surf town is only 20 minutes drive from Agadir and 40 minutes from the airport, and has some of the best surf in the world.  For anyone who is a beginner surfer get yourself booked in with the surf camp, and head to Panoramas or Devil’s Rock for some beautiful mellow surf to get you up and riding.  If you somehow had your fill of Panoramas or Devil’s Rock, then explore the coastline and venture 10km north to the town of Tamri which also has some great beginner waves.
 
  • 2- Intermediate Spots 

 
Panoramas’ right hand mellow waves can also gain some punch, so for those surfers looking to progress and improve their skills look for when the surf is pushing through and head down for something a little more challenging.  Close to Panoramas and even closer to your accommodation is Hash’s Point.  This right hand break may appear easy going, but will give you the opportunity get stuck in with your turns and cut-backs.
 
3- Advanced Spots

 
It would be a crime not to mention some of Morocco’s best waves in this blog- so if you know your stuff and fancy a bit of a dare you need to stay in Taghazout and surf the infamous right-hand break Anchor Point.  If this isn’t enough for you, add in the sure fired expert waves of La Source and Killers (right hand point break), which both lie around Taghazout’s headland.  There are masses of world class breaks to uncover along Morocco’s coast, so make sure you hire a guide and vehicle and go explore.
