The Taghazout legend was born in the late 70’s with the arrival of surfers and hippies.
Soon after, French and Portuguese surfers discovered this village and progressively made it the capital of surfing in North Africa.
Thanks to the combination of generous swell created by North Atlantic depressions, offshore winds, and a succession of points, reefs and sand beaches, it has become one of the most renowned surf destination of the world.
From September to April, the region benefits from a constant swell creating world class waves at various famous spots such as Anchor Point, Killer Point or Boiler. Our extensive coastline provides a variety of waves for the beginner surfer through to the pro surfer - even during the summer there is swell to enjoy.
Taghazout area offers a great variety of spots.
The coastline offers a mix of firing point breaks, reefs, and beach breaks. In other words, there is a wave for every surfer no matter your level.
Taghazout is famous for its amazing right-hand point breaks. On good days, waves like Anchor Point, Killers and Boilers serve up world-class rides. World of Waves is the ideal departure point for your surf trip.
Below you will find a short description of our main spots. Obviously, these are only the most famous ones. The coast has many secret spots and less known breaks. Discover them with our local surf guides, who grew up surfing here…
Consistent beach-break offering many peaks (lefts and rights), often the spot to go when Taghazout is smaller.
Powerful right hander washing onto a strong shallow reef. An old ship wreck and ship boiler gave the spot its name. Some urchins in the area so you may want to use boots. One of the best spots if you want to go big.
One of the most consistent and popular point breaks in Taghazout for advanced surfers. Long fast righthand waves over a flat reef providing barrels and hard sections
Great uncrowded spot with righthand waves for all levels of surfing.
World class surfing spot and most famous in Taghazout. A real pleaser when the coast receives good swell. Working well on all tides, it can give the opportunity to ride back into Taghazout when it is huge.
Nice right hander point break just in front of our surf house. Popular spot for longboarders, Taghazout locals and/or intermediate surfers willing to test point breaks. Can be a really good alternative to Anchor point when the swell is medium to large.
Great spot for beginners to intermediates which offers right and left handers. Very pleasant sunsets and laid back atmosphere. This is a popular spot for surf schools who take their beginner classes there, watch up the crowd!
Long right hander that provides an all level wave. Often a fast peak and smooth lines coming all the way down to the beach of Banana village.
Agadir bay is relatively protected from the swell. When the wave is big though you can find few peaks worth the drive. This is where we take our beginners when it is absolutely massive everywhere else.
