Surf Maroc offers one of the widest ranges of accommodation for surfers available in one place. From the luxury surfing holidays at Villa Mandala, the legendary surf camp at Taghazout Villa, the great value and atmosphere at the Auberge or their range of beachside apartments, they have something to suit every surfer and non-surfer alike. And it’s all on the beach in front of Morocco’s world-class surf.
Their services have been created with the sole aim of offering the perfect surfing holiday. The surf camps, surf school, Yoga Surf Retreats, surf equipment hire centre, restaurant, surf car hire and much more are run by a fun, sociable, passionate team dedicated to giving you an unforgettable surfing experience.
Right in the middle of the beach, its perfect location puts the Auberge in the heart of Taghazout. With uninterrupted ocean views from every terrace, you can check the surf from Panoramas Point all the way up to Anchor Point.
The kitsch Moroccan style chill-out lounge and restaurant is open all day, serving delicious homemade, Moroccan and international food. Day or night, it’s the most popular place to hang out in the village.
12 rooms in total - with 24 person capacity.
L'Auberge is open from 8am - 11pm, serving everyone’s favourite food worldwide. Incredible atmosphere, coolest hangout in Taghazout.
The top terrace is a great place to relax, sunbathe and socialise day and night. Great views, chill out areas and lots of sunbathing space.
The famous BBQ party night with live music, amazing food and the chance to meet lots of fun people. All of Surf Maroc’s guests, staff and friends gather here to eat, drink and party every Thursday.
The original and famous Taghazout Villa, located at the water's edge on Hash point, has 9 comfortable bedrooms. Unique and characteristic with a cool and beachy deco, the villa boasts a perfect view of Anchor Point, Hash point and the Super wedge and with other surf spots within walking distance...
It is little surprise it remains one of our most popular locations.
9 rooms in total with 23 person capacity:
Communal dining on large rustic wooden tables and benches overlooking Taghazout points breaks. Excellent chefs providing the very best Moroccan and international cuisine.
Situated right in front of Banana beach, tucked away from the market’s hustle and bustle and standing out as the best villa in the area, Mandala is the perfect surf and yoga escape. The large, private oceanfront terrace has plenty of space for basking in the sun by Mandala's pool or lazy afternoons in shady spots. Seconds from fantastic surf of Banana Point, Onze and Douze, Mandala incorporates privacy and a soulful individuality.
The area immediately surrounding Villa Mandala is not a tropical paradise but the sea views are beautiful and great beaches are in walking distance. It is a distinctly North African beachside location that is susceptible to the constant natural and man-made changes that rapidly occur in the developing world. It’s part of the experience and it’s what makes Villa Mandala a true gem hidden off the beaten track and Banana Village's best kept secret!
Villa Mandala has a private hamam (Moroccan sauna) for two so you can unwind and rejuvenate after a long day in the surf. The roof top terrace has a stunning wooden yoga shala and is the perfect place to sunbathe, chill out or have a drink at sunset. Downstairs there is a big living area with large sofas, TV, satellite, lots of films, wireless internet, books to read and games to play. The atmosphere is laid back, fun and friendly. The terrace and pool area are the perfect place to have breakfast in front of the surf, or enjoy a few drinks in the evening.
Communal dining in the inside dining area or poolside under the bourgainvillia flowers. Excellent chefs providing the very best Moroccan and international cuisine.
Surf Maroc’s self-catering apartment holidays are the option to go for if you want the privacy and independence of your own apartment for your stay. Like all the accommodation they offer, the apartments are on the beach overlooking world class surf.
So whether you want to check the waves for a dawny, sunbathe on the balcony or take it easy in the comfort of your own pad, the Surf Maroc apartments have it all. A hire car is included in all self-catering holidays so you can get to the surf when it’s on, as well as explore this amazing country.
Please note surf guiding, catering and use of the Taghazout Villa social areas is not included in the apartment stays.
The Tagahzout region is blessed with a multi-aspect coastline which means on any given day a wide range of waves can be found to suit the whole spectrum of abilities, likewise there are spots to suit an array of swell, tide, and wind variations. 99% of the time there is always somewhere to surf. Intermediates and those new to the sport should not be put off or worried; there is nearly always somewhere sheltered and manageable. Stay at Surf Maroc and they will take you there.
The summer months (April - October) see small to medium swells with surfing mostly taking place on the beaches and reefs on the more exposed north west coast, this is great time for anyone looking for fun, uncrowded warm water surf. During the winter months (October - March) the waves that have made Morocco famous come to life and world class surf and leg-achingly long rides are an everyday occurrence.
Add in some near perfect weather conditions (300 days of sunshine a year, an average temperature Nov-Feb of 21C, water temperature 18C) and you've got all the makings of an ideal surf trip.
Yoga in a breathtaking location. Surf in perfect warm water waves. Sleep in an enchanting villa. Eat incredibly well. Restore. Revive and feel amazing.
Yoga Surf Retreats give you energising yoga, waves for all surfing abilities, delicious food and great company - for a holiday you’ll remember forever.
They believe in nourishing and balancing the body and mind through a daily diet of vitalising yoga, then surf and wholesome food within a tranquil environment.

I stayed at L'Auberge which is one of 3 properties run by Surf Maroc in Taghazout, Morocco. On arrival at Agadir airport I was collected by one of Surf Maroc's drivers and taken directly to Taghazout which took about 40 minutes. There, I was warmly welcomed by the manager of L'Auberge and shown to my accommodation which sits nestled below the village almost on the beach. A great setting if it wasn't for the local fisherman selling their daily catch only 10 yards away from the ground floor restaurant…. but maybe that adds to the charm of the place? The accommodation itself was somewhat basic and decor a little tired but great views of the beach from the third floor and roof top terraces where you can relax on the sun loungers after a good day's surfing. The food was EXCELLENT and the smoothies were to die for! I visited in the Summer when the waves were relatively small but great if you're a beginner or improver. The guides were great, I had Mouhesin who was superb! He knew exactly where the best surf spots were and gave tips on my technique where needed. I would recommend buying the full package on booking to include board and wetsuit hire, airport transfer, surf tuition and evening meals to ensure you have a hassle free holiday. A big thank you to The Perfect Wave for a perfect holiday! Everything was done for me, all I had to do was turn up at the airport. Great service!
