If you enjoy surfing and are looking for somewhere different Morocco is well worth considering. The surfing industry is still relatively young in Morocco, but it is already quite sophisticated offering a huge range of surfing. Experienced surfers are well catered for as well as complete beginners.
Where to Go
There are several surfing resorts to choose from, but right now Dakhla and Essaouira are definitely the places to go. Both resorts offer a huge choice of water sports as well as surfing. You can try kitesurfing and windsurfing and take classes in both disciplines.
The surfing schools in both resorts offer good quality lessons for surfers of all abilities. Most schools run private as well as group lessons, day trips and surfing tours. This ensures that everyone gets to experience the surfing they are looking for.
These Moroccan resorts are ideal destinations for groups or families who have surfers with mixed abilities. It means that everyone can split up during the day and take classes or surfing tours that are tailored to their specific needs. At night, they can all meet up and enjoy the restaurants and clubs together. Both resorts offer a good range of accommodation.
However, in both resorts surfing schools become very busy at certain times of the year. For this reason, it is important to book in advance. At certain times of the year finding accommodation can be difficult, so again it makes sense to book this in advance.
If you want to you can travel with your own kit, but there is really no need to do so. Both resorts have several hire shops and they do not charge much. If you are worried, pre-book your equipment. The owners of these surf shops speak good English, so can explain over Skype what kit they have to offer and most will reserve it for you.
Morocco is an interesting country, so consider taking a day or two out to explore. If you want to see the countryside from horseback or a quad bike you can do that, but again it is wise to book these activities in advance.
