Why not fly to Marrakech where we can collect you in our spacious people carrier for £150 each way, this is the price for the journey NOT per person so if you have 6 people the cost is only £25 per head each way. Alternatively we can arrange for four or less people to be picked up by a local driver for £90.

You can also get a coach or train from Marrakech to Agadir where we are also able to collect you. The price varies depending on the operator but is usually around £15 each way please email us for more information.
Moroccan currency is the Dirham and is a ‘closed currency’ meaning you cannot obtain currency outside the country, or take it with you upon departure. It is extremely easy to change any currency upon arrival at the airport and we are also within close proximity to a number of ATM’s and banks that will change travelers cheques.
British passport holders do not need a visa to visit Morocco and are entitled to stay for up to 90 days. It is essential your passport is valid for 6 months from your arrival. For more information please visit: Morocco.com for passport/visa information

There is surf within a couple of minutes walk for all abilities of surfer, beginner beach breaks, intermediate points and professional reefs and slabs. There really is something for everyone. The best time of year for surfing the area is during the winter which is why we have chosen to only be open at this time of year to almost guarantee world class waves and perfect conditions no matter what your ability!
Some visitors choose to arrive with over 6 boards for all the variety of waves they want to encounter during their stay. We offer board and wetsuit hire for everyone from beginner to pro should you not want to risk damaging your board with the baggage handlers! We recommend using a standard 3/2 full summer suit however this really depends on your own tolerance. You’ll be fine in a good summer suit however you may even want to wear a shortie to maximize the tan!
If you fancy a day off or choose to visit but not surf then there is so much within Taghazout to keep you occupied. We can organize everything from quad biking, therapeutic massages, horse rides, mountain treks to camel rides!
Alcohol and Partying:
It is not illegal to drink alcohol in Taghazout however it is culturally insensitive to be seen drinking in the street with a lads on tour attitude. We do regular runs to the supermarket where we are more then happy to pick you up some drinks. Your also more than welcome to bring any drink with you from duty free. We regularly have one or two beers after a good surf which more often then not turns into a fair few beers sometimes resulting in a night out clubbing in Agadir until the early hours.
Morocco has over 330 days of sunshine a year so day wear consists of boardies/bikinis and flip flops however it does get chilly the moment the sun comes down so a pair of jeans and a hoody is often worth packing.
