The Perfect Morocco Surf Trip Itinerary
May 24, 2019
Morocco has some of the best surfing waves in all of Africa. Not only is Morocco home to Africa’s Longest Bay, located in Imsouane, but it practically has year round sunshine and awesome waves for any surfing level. We’ve created the perfect Morocco surf trip itinerary for your visit to Morocco. Whether you’re an advanced or beginner surfer, you can visit all of these towns and catch the waves according to your surf level.
Once you stop by Afer Surf Hostel in Imsouane, we’ll be so excited to meet you and welcome you into our home! So grab a vehicle, a board, and a buddy, and we’ll see you soon.
Rent a Car
Renting a car in Morocco is affordable, easy, and an efficient way of getting around the country. It’s easy to rent a car from any of the major airports in Casablanca, Marrakech, and Agadir. And once you’re out of any of the major cities, the winding roads will take you through gorgeous countryside landscapes, and you’ll get to see some parts of Morocco that you would otherwise miss out on if you were taking public transportation. Strap your surfboard to the roof and hit the road!
Essaouira (2-3 days)
This is an awesome starting base for a surfing road trip in Morocco. Essaouira is also a popular spot for kite surfing and is well connected to other parts of Morocco. Enjoy the beautiful fort and landscape as well. You can also horseback ride on the beach when you want to take a break from surfing.
Imsouane (1-2 weeks)
Welcome to the home of Afer Surf Hostel and Africa’s Longest Bay! There are two surfing locations in Imsouane, the Bay and Cathedral Point. Both surf spots are perfect for any surf level, depending on what time of day you go. Once you arrive at Afer Surf Hostel, we’ll help you grab a wetsuit and a board and will find the time to head out into the surf with you! The guests that stay at our hostel go surfing daily; it’s the perfect sociable hostel to meet other surfers and grab a buddy to catch the waves with.

Many people prefer Imsouane to its neighbor, Taghazout, because it’s way more chilled out and less developed. It’s a bit of a gem that’s tucked away behind sand dunes. But of course, we’re biased!
Taghazout (1-2 weeks)
The waves at Taghazout itself are for more advanced surfers. Luckily, there are tons of surf schools that will take you to nearby beaches for more beginner waves. Taghazout has more choices than Imsouane in terms of cafes and shopping, and is more built up.
Tamraght (1 week)
This is a small Berber village on the coast. Many surfers head to Plage Imourane to catch some waves, and is another gorgeous coastal town in Morocco.
Agadir (2 days)
There’s no surfing in Agadir, but there is an airport! This is a good place to spend a day or two and unwind from your intense surfing trip before you fly out.
