- 1- Taghazout/Tamraht
- 2- Essaouira
Famous as a hippy town in the 1960s Essaouira is always worth a visit for its beginner to intermediate waves, and to explore the beautiful streets that have inspired film makers of the years. The town still is a centre for fishing and beautiful crafts which have been traded for centuries as the town was built up around a natural harbour. If the weather turns windy whilst visiting take the opportunity to try out windsurfing or kitesurfing as the town is now considered to be world class in these fields.
- 3- Safi
When it comes to famous Moroccan waves, Safi has one of the best… its righthand barrel has called out to expert surfers since its discovery in the 1970s. However there are plenty of beginner and improver surf beaches to discover around the town especially if you like long hollow barrels! Safi is a great place to base yourself if you want to do trips to Essaouira towards the south or even Casablanca in the North.
- 4- Dakhla
Somehow this town has it all but that could be because it is found on a 40km peninsular off the coast of Morocco and the Western Sahara, so greedily gets all the waves. Think reef breaks, point breaks, and even beginner surfer beach breaks. Ideal for those of us who are still just getting to grips with surfing as the waves range between 2-8ft max. Dakhla lies just above the tropic of Cancer, so think heat, arid climate, and a whole lot of sunscreen.
