What are the best surf resorts in Morocco, which is just a short flight from European airports? Morocco offers excellent surf resorts which lie right on the beach and enjoy a glorious subtropical climate, cooled by breezes off the Atlantic and Mediterranean.
Separated from Europe and sitting just 13kms south of the Straits of Gibraltar, Morocco offers waves along the length of its 2500 kilometers of coastline. Taghazout in the south is a well-known surf hub, but Essaouir, Rabat, Safi, and Casablanca all have waves too.
Here are our top picks for the best surf resort in Morroco:
1. Paradis Plage Surf Yoga & Spa Resort
Paradis Plage Surf Yoga & Spa Resort is our top luxury surf hotel choice. A stay here means that you can surf in their warm sea, from the moment the sun rises right through to the evening.
Paradis Plage enjoys a superb position on a stunning 5 km long beach. This coastline is perfect for surfing, as the waves boast a constant swell between April and September. If you are proficient you can just head out into the sea on your own, but if you are new to surfing the resort provides excellent instructors to get you started.
The resort is easy to get to, just 45 minutes from Agadir airport and 5 minutes from Taghazout. Built over two floors, luxurious rooms offer both ocean and mountain views and its geographical location in a bay, protected by surrounding mountains, means that it has the perfect micro-climate year-round.
The food here is a delicious mix of Mediterranean dining, modern Moroccan dishes, and traditional cuisine. For something more simple, the Chiringuito surf house bar serves up burgers and drinks by the ocean.
Whether your passion is to surf, or you are just looking for some restorative relaxation by the pool, this resort offers the perfect destination for year-round sunshine and paddling with that warm sand between your toes, while the rest of Europe shivers in the cold.
2. Amouage by Surf Maroc
For an excellent if less luxurious choice, try the 3 star Amouage by Surf Maroc. Amouage is where surf and yoga meet a boutique hotel. Located on the oceanfront, the hotel is designed to be a haven for those who wish to have a curated holiday experience of surf, yoga, and good times. It provides lively public areas, a spa, rooftop yoga garden, infinity pool, and bar.
3. Taghazout Villa by Surf Maroc

Accommodation is based in Tamrakht and Taghazout. Healthy and hearty food is important here so a delicious Moroccan and continental breakfast is served on the terrace along with sweet Moroccan mint tea. After a long day of yoga or surfing, a delicious dinner of international and Moroccan cuisine with hot tagines, fish or meat, veggies, fresh bread, and salads will wait for you on the beautiful terraces.
Qualified and encouraging instructors will help you to improve no matter your level. And if you need a day off, they will show you the real Morocco: vibrant souks, paradise valley, lively Marrakech or just watch the waves on a camel’s back.
