A few kilometres north of Agadir lies the atmospheric fishing village and surfers’ hideaway of Taghazout. This coastline boasts some of Morocco’s best surf spots, such as Killer Point, Anchor Point, Banana Point, Hash Point, Boilers or Mysteries. Reefs with very long right handers and excellent beach breaks for all levels, from total beginners to experts. Furthermore, as this stretch of coast is sheltered by Cap Ghir and surrounding hills, sunshine is virtually guaranteed in the region, with over 300 days of sunshine per year!!
At the heart of the region lies Devil's Rock Surfcamp, an all inclusive facility between Taghazout and Banana Village surf spot. After surfing you are welcome to watch the preparation of the famous “Tagine” and “Couscous”. Totally refurbished surfhouse with a chillout roof terrace overlooking the ocean.
The Surf House
Devil's Rock is an excellent Surfcamp near Taghazout in Tamrhakht, opened all year, all inclusive and for all levels, offering guided tours to the best spots in the area while providing surf classes for beginners. Because it is sheltered by Cap Ghir and surrounding hills, sunshine is virtually guaranteed in the Agadir region, with over 300 days of sunshine per year!
Devil's Rock surfhouse is located 300 metres from the beach in the small town of Tamrhakht, between Banana Village and Taghazout. Built on a hillside with stunning views across the coast, the surfhouse has a traditional inner courtyard and Moroccan lounge, 5 rooms accommodating each 2 to 4 guests, and 3 bathrooms.
After surfing you are welcome to watch the preparation of the famous “Tagine” and “Couscous” and the home made bread, which you will enjoy at breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean. A perfect place to watch sunsets and check surf conditions in the morning.
Totally re-furbished surfhouse:
- New chill-out area on the terrace with billard table
- New free computer acces for surfers to use the internet
- New reversible air conditioners hot & cold in room
- New surfboard range
- New larger TV and dining room area
Guided tours to the best spots in the area while providing surf classes for beginners. Instructors speak perfect English, French, and Spanish. They have French Federation and Lifeguard diplomas.
The region enjoys consistent, world class surfing conditions from September through to April. The combination of swell generated by the North Atlantic depressions, light offshore trade winds and a variety of point, reef and beach breaks, make the Agadir region an exceptional surfing destination. Famous surf spots around Taghazout, all a short drive distance away, include Banana Beach, Hash Point, Anchor Point, Killer Point and Boiler. And Devil's Rock walking distance from the surfcamp.
Morocco receives the same swells as the Atlantic coasts of Europe, but because of its more southerly location, does not suffer from the same cold winter weather. With swells ranging from 3 to 15 feet you will always find a wave to suit your level of surfing experience and ability. Those with less experience should not worry; when the points are 15 feet and grinding there's always a sheltered spot to found. In Summer, when Tagahzout surf spots are too small, there are always some waves in nearby Tamri, Imsoune or Tifnit.

Morocco lies directly across the Strait of Gibraltar, no more than 8 miles (13 km.) from Spain and Europe. Morocco is the only African country with coastal exposure to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean sea, although most of its 1,150 miles (1.835 km.) of coastline are on the Atlantic shore. With so much Atlantic coastline, Morocco offers the surfer a dazzling array of opportunities. Rocky bottoms alternate with sandy ones, reef breaks with beach breaks, offering a surfing alternative for all conditions, skills and levels. Surfers will find string of first class surf spots down the whole Atlantic coast, from Tangier to Agadir and beyond in the deep south. The most famous surf spots lie just north of Agadir, around the fishing village and surfer hideway of Taghazout.
Although Americans and Australians were the surfers who brought the sport to Morocco in the 1970's, now it is the European surfer along with his Moroccan counterpart who is indulging his passion for the wave. In the last few years, the popularity of this sport has grown rapidly on the international and Moroccan stage. Several organisations have been formed to encourage and to promote this sport. These groups have organised tournaments and contests, created surfing schools, formed ties with Europeans organisations and tried to make the country aware of the public relations and financial potentials of the sport.
A few kilometres north of Agadir and easily accessible by bus or taxi, lies the atmospheric fishing village and surfing Mecca of Taghazout. Even if there is always a handful of tourists around and Taghazout has become a hippy and surfer hideaway, the village still lives according to its own agenda. Yet much of the activities are related to tourism these days and there are many restaurants around playing Bob Marley all day long ! The locals still wear traditional clothes, wooden fishing boats lie on the shore, painted with colourful patterns and fishermen mend their nets on the beach. The village displays an array of narrow streets line by cubic white houses with doors of many colours and intricate patterns.
Agadir is sited on a gentle bay with a seven miles of magnificent sandy beaches. It is the country's leading fishing harbour and a lively ancient town founded by the Roman and watched over by its citadel, built by the Portuguese in 1540. But in 1960, shortly after the independence of the country, disaster struck and the city was virtually destroyed by two earthquakes and a tidal wave. In the aftermath of the disaster, the government undertook the reconstruction of Agadir and planed the area as Morocco's major tourist resort. The city was rebuilt according to modern specifications for this purpose and today, Agadir is indeed Morocco's foremost seaside resort and offers a wide range of five and four star hotels.
Because it is sheltered by Cap Ghir and surrounding hills, sunshine is virtually guaranteed in the Agadir region, with over 300 days of sunshine per year! The winter air temperature seldom drops below 22C during the day, and the water temperature averages 18C.
