When you’re in this part of the world you must also get to the mountains for a few nights – they’re just 10mins above the coastal towns and the trundle up in an old Renault 4/ Quatre-elle with the gear stick that pulls out of the ‘dashboard’ is all part of the adventure. The air…
Once simply a small fishing village near Agadir, Taghazout has, over recent years, become a tourist destination in its own right. This newfound interest is all down to one thing – Taghazout’s growing reputation as Morocco’s top surf spot.
Surfers of all levels can enjoy the waves around Taghazout, and you can paddle out and take on exotic sounding surf breaks such as Hash Point, Panorama, Anchor Point, La Source, Killer Point and Mysteries. The water is warm, the days are sunny, and as in any surfing town, the vibe in Taghazout is relaxed and laid-back.
It’s easy to get around Taghazout; the size of the village means everywhere is reachable on foot. Slightly further afield are the spectacular Imouzzer Cascades and Agadir is just twelve miles to the south.
