Have you ever surfed as the sun rose on a warm sea? Have you strolled along the beach on a warm evening? However wealthy you are, it is these special moments that make life so magical. I love to feel the warm sand between my toes to the soundtrack of waves breaking on the shore.
One way to enjoy some of these magical moments is to surf and I recently discovered an incredibly loved enterprise on the Moroccan coast named “Surf Coast Morocco”. This boutique company aims to make your holidays as good as you can imagine. Of course their location helps, being based in the unspoilt town in Taghazout bathed in Moroccan sunshine.
Surf Coast Morocco design your trip so that you have such a good time that it will be difficult to forget. Being primarily a surf holiday, waves are essential and they promise to find amazing waves for your level, warm water and sun all year-long. What sets them apart is the special places they share with you, like the aptly named paradise valley (pictured below), the friendly people who you will share these experiences with you, the tasty food, easy-going lifestyle and of course, the stunning sunsets.
The Surf House
Accomodation is based in Tamrakht and Taghazout. The Surf Coast House located in Taghazout has a cool and easy-going atmosphere, surrounded by traditional Moroccan houses and a stunning beach & ocean view. It is about 19 km from the city of Agadir and close to the surf spots panorama, hash and anchor point and is perfect for surf beginners to intermediates and professionals. The highlight is the Beach & Ocean View Terrace at Surf Coast house where you enjoy breakfast and evening meals. Bedrooms are hostel level but cared for.
Healthy and hearty food is important with a delicious Moroccan and continental breakfast on the terrace including Sweet Moroccan mint tea, fresh coffee and milk, Moroccan harira soup, freshly baked bread, omelette, pancakes, honey, jam, fresh fruit,cereals, cheese, olives and eggs. Lunch is of course served at the beach. Enjoy a fresh made salad or sandwich filled with fish, meat or cheese and vegetables and as dessert delicious fruits. 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, fresh bread and salads will wait for you once again on the beautiful terraces.
Qualified and encouraging instructors will help you to improve no matter your level. And if you need a day off from surfing – don’t worry! They will show you the real Morocco: vibrant souks, paradise valley, lively Marrakech – or if you cannot get enough from the ocean – just watch the waves on a camel’s back.
Surf Coast Morocco offers a homely base and incredible guidance on improving your surfing skills. Expect great surfing, a good vibe and sparkling sunsets.
