Surfing in Morocco
Morocco is located in the northwest of Africa and is one of only three countries to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines.
The country is characterised by rugged mountainous terrain and the expansive Sahara desert. This diversified landscape makes Morocco an exciting travel destination.
Beyond it’s geographical beauties, Morocco is home to eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Medinas of Fes, Tetouran and Marrakech, the archeological site of the Roman city of Volubilis, the historic city of Mekness and the capital of Rabat. In addition to amazing surf conditions, the country’s Atlas mountain range is also suitable for winter spots.
Morocco is an ideal holiday country for all types of outdoor activities and cultural pursuits whether you are surfing waves or sand dunes or drinking mint tea in ancient medina.

While the climate varies depending on the terrain, temperatures are generally mild and comfortable all year long throughout the country. The summer heat is cooled down by chilly west winds from the Atlantic. The south of Morocco has a slightly hotter, dryer climate due to the desert while the higher regions of the Atlas Mountains can get cooler during winter.
Morocco is an attractive surf destination because of its favourable, year-round climate and its thousands of kilometres of Atlantic coastline in the west.
There are plenty of long point breaks especially in the winter when powerful swells from the north hit the Moroccan reefs. There are waves that will suit all levels of ability from advanced to beginners.
Best season for beginner: April – October
Best season for advanced surfer: October – March
Crowd factor: high on the popular spots
Getting to Morocco typically involves air travel to one of Morocco’s major airports:
Al Massira (AGA) in Agadir, the Mohammed V International Airport in Casablanca (CMN) or Menara International Airport (RAK) close to Marrakech. Royal Air Maroc and most European airlines fly to Morocco daily. The approximate flight time from Europe is 3 to 4 hours. Additionally, there are regional airports with flight connections between Al Hoceima, Dakhla, Essaouira, Errachidia, Fes, Laâyoune, Nador, Ouarzazate, Oujda, Rabat-Salé, Tangier and Tetouran.
The fastest way to get to Morocco from Spain is by ferry through a company called Transmediterrana, which takes you from Algeciras to Ceuta in 35 minutes or from Algeciras to Tangier in 2 hours and 30 minutes. From there, you can continue your journey by car or take advantage of the well-established bus network (http://www.supratours.ma).
