"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 "

Villa Mandala

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.

Please note surf guiding, catering and use of the Taghazout Villa social areas is not included in the apartment stays.

Surf & Other Activities

Surf

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.

Surfbreaks

  • Tamri – A friendly beach break suitable for all levels, Tamri is a swell magnet - one of Morocco's best beach breaks. Always offshore in the mornings.
  • Boilers – Fast, long right hand point break with a great inside barrel section.  This is one of the most consistent breaks and is recommended for intermediate to advance due to the currents and rocks.  Offshore most of the time.
  • Killers – Famous sand bottomed, world class right hand point break, 250m rides are likely when there's decent swell.  There's a great lefthander when small.
  • Mysteries and the Source – Beautiful right-hand reef with sand channels. Steep and hollow take off then mellows into a fun and very rippable right hand wall.
  • Anchors – Probably the most famous wave in Morocco. It is a long world class right hand point break with long, mellow walls providing some of the best fast peeling barrel sections.  Anchors is suitable for long and short board riders, intermediate to advanced only.
  • Devils Rock – Peaky beachy right in front of a village, fun for all levels.
  • Imsouanne - one of the longest rights in the world, perfect for beginners, intermediates and longboarders.  Can turn to world class when the swell gets big enough
  • Banana Point – mellow right hand point that breaks over sand, long walls perfect for longboarders.

Hi Suzi, The trip was really great. Awesome crew at surf maroc and great location. I moved from l'auberge to tagazhout villa for the last three nights as they had an empty room and absolutely loved it there. Will definitely go back. l'auberge was nice too, but the villa certainly more relaxed and quiet which I enjoyed. Thanks for organizing, all went very well! Thanks Nils

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!
