The basics

It’s surfing that draws most visitors to Taghazout. If you’re new to the sport (or you simply want to improve your skills), you can take a one-on-one or group lesson, or embark on a multi-day retreat with surf yoga, nutritious meals, and video feedback on your progress. You may also find yourself stopping here on a day trip out of Agadir. A camel or horseback ride along the golden sands is a popular add-on after a hike in Paradise Valley, while beach fans find the coast less commercialized than Agadir.

Things to know before you go

  • You’ll need a wetsuit to surf Taghazout. Like boards, suits are available for rent, but plus-size travelers and petite women will need to bring their own.

  • Taghazout yoga teachers offer classes focused on the muscle groups you use most while surfing, making a great complement to surf lessons.

  • Neither Taghazout village nor Taghazout Beach is set up for travelers who rely on wheelchairs.

How to get there

Taghazout Beach lies about 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of downtown Agadir. It’s about 30 miles (45 kilometers) from Agadir’s airport, located on the other side of town. A range of buses travel the N1 coastal road between Essaouira and Agadir: the L32 and L33 from Agadir stop in Taghazout village, close to the beach.

When to get there

Like Agadir, Taghazout is warm and sunny year-round, although it can be cool at night during winter. Most everyone comes for the Atlantic swells, and novice surfers will find beginner-friendly beach breaks any time of year. In the summer, both the ocean and beach are crowded, so veterans prefer the season from late September to April when the swell is bigger and the point breaks pump. For the best waves, plan your trip between November and March.

Learning to surf in Taghazout

While it’s possible to learn to surf without a teacher, it’s safer—for you and others—and much quicker to hire a teacher along with your board and wetsuit. Most beginner surfers learn on Panorama Beach, which is sandy, central, and has regular waves. Banana Beach, 10 minutes out of town, can provide a less crowded alternative, but it does have rocks.
