Tagzahout lies on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. It is a little Berber fishing village between the sea and the mountains, around 20 km south of the city of Agadir. It’s also a surf haven. Surfers from around the world are attracted to Tagzahout by the waves and the vibes. A Tagazahout surfing trip is a fantastic opportunity to sample some authentic Moroccan culture while catching some waves.
Tagzahout has plenty to offer beginners and expert surfers. There are several surf schools and hire shops in the town, and even specialist surf hotels. Most tourists in Tagzahout are there for the surfing, making it a very friendly scene.
There are several world-class surf spots at Tagzahout. Anchor Point is known to surfers all over the world. It’s a tough wave to surf, with some big swells. Definitely one for the experienced, but for those who can handle it, it often becomes a firm favourite.
Killer Point is another tough one, breaking out from a cliff. It’s a long paddle (or a short jump off a cliff!) to get to it, but it’s worth it. It is named after the local killer whales, rather than the dangerousness of the wave.
Beginners usually head to Banana Beach, just south of the village. The beach has some nice, easy breaks that are perfect for finding your feet on. Surfers can travel up and down the coast from Tagzahout and find waves. There are some lovely empty beaches around, where you might even get a wave all to yourself.
A Tagzahout surfing trip offers great surfing for all levels. It is also a lovely, chilled out place to be, where local fishermen and camels mingle with surfers on the beach.
