The world class surf spots of Tamraght and Taghazout
Dar Oceana is at the heart of Morocco’s best surfing area, a stretch of coastline particularly well oriented to receive all the Atlantic’s swells while benefiting from a favourable wind regime in winter. With so many beaches and rocky points, the area boasts the highest concentration of ideal surfing configurations anywhere in West-Africa, and offers a dozen world-renowned spots in the space of a few kilometres. There are waves for all tastes and all levels, from beginner to expert. Let’s look at the most famous ones:
1 – Anza: While Agadir Bay hardly receives any swell, Anza Beach can offer interesting waves when other spots don’t work.
2 – Banana: A good option right in Tamraght, with a long and easy right-hander. Probably the easiest pointbreak wave in the area.
3 – Devil’s Rock: Just below Dar Oceana, a good little beachbreak next to a rocky point that holds the sandbanks and offers protection from the wind. A safe bet.
4 – Panorama: An introduction to the waves of Taghazout in the shape of a righthander popular with beginners. The waves always remain small, but can peel for quite long.
5 – Anchor Point: A legendary wave attracting surfers from all over the world. With enough swell, the rights are as long as they are perfect, with walls begging for all kinds of manoeuvres.
6 – Killer Point: A huge playground with several take-off zones, and more right-handers peeling for several hundred meters…
7 – Boiler’s: A good option for surfing long rights in a small swell, even if getting in and out can be somewhat tricky.
8 – Tamri: The last resort spot. A beach with average waves, but surfable even with the weakest swell.
