Why take this tour?
Once only a sleepy fishing village perched on the North African Atlantic coast that came alive each winter with the sound of pounding pointbreaks. Today it is a chilled-out surfer’s paradise that is full surf banter, cafés, local stores, and restaurants serving traditional Moroccan cuisine. A gorgeous place rich in Arabic culture.
The long expanse of beach with a headland to the north that offers shelter and can be a fantastic place to spend the day, relaxing in the shade while gazing and the magnificent views. Taghazout is surf, surf, and more surf, Morocco’s premium surfing destination.
Taghazout – Moroccan Surf Mecca
Taghazout and vicinity is dotted with world-class breaks. They are generally consistent, even when there is not sizeable swell in the water. These are some of the most notable:
Anchor Point – a delicious right point break that looks easier than you think
Killer Point – a powerful wave. Which is higher than you think
La Source – a performance wave, only a little less tall and powerful then Killer Point
Mysteries – located directly next to La Source, with the waves breaking partly on sand, making them more relaxed
Hash Point – one of the most relaxed waves
Panoramas – could reasonably have some flow. But also runs a nice long right
Devil’s Rock – a tough name for a break, everyday can be different with right and lefts; mostly right
Banana Beach – the best beginner beach in Taghazout
Dracs – if you get a wave at Dracs it will likely be the best waves of your life. Razor-sharp rocks line the entry/exit route, so you will need booties and impeccable timing. When big northerly swells bombard the coastline, surfers score the longest barrels they have ever seen
Boilers – a point more exposed than Anchors; will likely be breaking when Anchors or Dracs are not. It is a tricky wave to sur. A fun wave but it bends out to sea in the most frustrating way
