The Southern Atlantic Coast Sights


  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

In summer the beaches north of Agadir on the Essaouira road—especially those in the rapidly expanding Taghazoute area—are crammed with Moroccan families (who often camp there), but it empties out in winter. This is the area to visit if you want to tackle some of Morocco's best surf; a range of cafés, hostels, and rental apartments have been springing up to meet the demand. Although lots of land here had been prepared for luxury and family resorts, construction stopped

during the Eurozone economic crisis and is only now recommencing. As a result, Taghazoute still has the feel of a rough-and-ready surfers' frontier town. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: surfing; swimming; sunset.
