It is a destination for surfers because it offers all kind of surfing conditions, from soft beginner waves to heavy reef breaks for more advanced surfers. Furthermore, the little town is a nice hippie one with gorgeous cafes, stunning murals, and chilling weather almost all year around. The best time to surf in the area is from late fall to early spring. Between September and April, the swell of the waves is fantastic and the wind is ideal. During the rest of the year, the conditions are not as good as they are since a strong North-West wind blows most of the time. So, if you are looking for less crowded beaches and more affordable surf lessons it wouldn’t be a bad idea to come during the low season though. Next to Taghazout, Tamri and Imsouane villages are other surfing hubs not to miss out nor skip during your stay in the surroundings. Highly recommended.
Surfing in Imsouan:
Imsouane is a beautiful Moroccan town located right between Essaouira and Taghazout. It is among the favorite destinations in Morocco for many surfers due to its quiet and silent atmosphere. This makes it a relatively remote location with less available transportation options to get. Thus, our private vehicles are at your disposal all year around.
