Surfing in Morocco is amazing!
Especially when Europe needs to dress warmly here are the daily temperatures in T-shirts and flip-flop friendly than 20 °. Morocco is one of the quickly accessible winter warm destinations. reachable in just 3-5 hours flight time at low rates and without annoying jetlag.
The waves are in the summer May to September, mainly suitable for beginners. In our winter months then the advanced surfers really get their costs. The waves are consistently good to sensational. The nearly 2000km long Moroccan coast benefited uniquely from the fierce Atlantic winter swells. Our Surfhouse Taghazout is now available all year round.
WELCOME TO MOROCCO!
The Maranga Surfhouse Taghazout is our answer to the winter in our home countries, but you can visit us the whole year to escape the cold weather in germany.
The house is located directly in the fishing village Taghazout. Between our house and the beach is only one more row of houses. You have a wonderful view from our rooftop terrace over the Sea and 3 different surf spots.
Our Surfvilla offers double, triple and a 5-bed room in a typical Moroccan style- the rooms are decorated with beautiful tiles and oriental ornaments. Apart from the beds the rooms also provide enough storage for your belongings. In the house there is a shower and a European standard toilet. Furthermore we have two kitchens where we prepare very tasty food for you, mostly typical Moroccan dishes. You can enjoy the meals on our rooftop terrace in the morning sun for breakfast or in a nice candlelight atmosphere in the evening.
Our comfortable terrace invites you to relax and chill out. You can watch the always busy main road of Taghazout on the one side or contemplate the waves of the nearby ocean on the other.
Hash Point, so genannt, weil hier die Leute surfen, die zu bekifft sind, um noch nach La Source zu laufen. Wenn es klein ist, kann es perfekt sein, je größer, desto häufiger sind die Wellen close-out. Da der Spot mitten in Taghazout liegt, wird er immer sehr voll und die Wasserqualität geht eher in Richtung bedenklich. Hat man Glück, surft man über Sand, sonst über eine flache Riffplatte, ohne herausschauende Felsen.
Taghazout Beach – Südlich von Taghazout erstreckt sich ein 3 Kilometer langer Sandstrand mit diversen, nicht definierten und ungesurften Peaks, also ideal für den absoluten Anfänger.
Ankerpoint – Sie benötigt einen fetten Swell damit ihr Zauber beginnt. Die Welle bricht als ein sehr langer rechter Pointbreak über Felsen. Man sollte schon etwas mehr Erfahrung mitbringen. Das Ein- und Aussteigen braucht gutes Timing und einiges an Geduld (und Glück). Es wird hier natürlich auch sehr voll, wenn sie läuft. Auch wenn die Länge von um die 400 Meter cool klingt, so gibt es doch den eigentlichen Thrill beim Take-off.
The Maranga Surfhouse is situated directly at the beach in the very popular fishing town Taghazout, not far south of Agadir.
This town is becoming an internationally known and frequented spot amongst surfers from all over the world. Little food shops, several restaurants and cafes, surf shops and cyber cafes are all within the reach of a few minutes walk.
It’s just a 5-minute walk to our camp’s surf spot, and even the famous spot Anchor Point can be reached on foot. The three main surf spots of Taghazout- Hash Point, Anchor Point and Panorama- can be seen from our rooftop terrace. Even beautiful sunrises and sunsets and lively street life of Taghazout can be admired sitting there comfortably.
If you want to learn how to surf it’s best to do that under the surveillance and guidance of ourexperienced surf instructors.
The beginner’s course takes place 3 days a week and 2 hours per day; the intermediate’s program will be distributed to 6 lessons on 3 days. For those of you who don’t own a board yet or are worrying about the transport on plane, we provide BIC and NSP boards in almost all sizes as rentals.

You start the day with our famous ample breakfast sitting on our roof top terrace watching the sea, while getting nervous jumping in there with your surf board or we go in one of the nice street cafes while watching the colorful street life.
From Monday to Friday you can book dinner, too. We have a very diverse portfolio of dishes. From traditional Moroccan food over tasty pasta casserole to Austrian Germknödel (sweet dumplings) can be everything on the weekly menu. Sometimes we go out for dinner to a pizza place or to a fish restaurant having some freshly caught fish or we have a barbecue on our rooftop terrace.
Morocco is worth traveling – not only for surfers! Great landscape of the back country and the fascinating royal cities which are popular destinations when you have got enough time to travel.
In the surrounding area of Taghazout you can make a trip to Paradise Valley – the Valley of the 1000 palm tries. It goes along a glimmering river and at the end you can jump from the rocks into the natural formed basin of the source.
From Taghazout a bus is going to busy Agadir. You must visit the great Soukh! Here you‘ll find yourself between mountains of carpets, tasty Arabic sweets and barrels of mandarins.
ATTENTION: Please note that for your entry in Morocco you need a passport, being valid for at least 6 months from the day of your entry onwards. Travelers from non EU-countries might have to check on Visa regulations for their country on their own. You must be above 18 years to visit us.
There are two possible Airports you can fly to:
At the airport Agadir you just get in to a cap in the queue outside of the building to go to Taghazout. The ride takes 45 minutes and costs between 300 and 400 DH (ca. 35,00 Euros) – depending on how many persons you are and how much luggage you carry. The price for the ride must be negotiated beforehand. In case you bring your own surf board, we recommended to bring some tension belts with you.
Arrived in Marrakech you m ax watch out for other surfer (easy to recognize) and find out wether they also travel further ti Agadir or even Taghazout. Then you can take a shared taxi to the bus terminal of SUPRATOURS or CTM (those are the biggest bus lines which go every two hours to Agadir). The taxi costs depending on your negotiation skills between 100 and 200 DH (10,- to 20,- Euros).
The bus ticket to Agadir costs between 90 and 120 DH (10,- to 12,- Euros) and some more for luggage (3,- to 4,- Euros). The trip takes about 3 hours – thanks to the new freeway. While driving along the Atlas Mountains you can enjoy your first impressions of beautiful Maroc. In Agadir you arrive at the bus terminal. From there you can take a taxi to Taghazout (maybe with other passengers from the bus). Now it takes only about 30 minutes and costs about 100 DH per person in a shared taxi.
Never fear! It sounds more complicated than it actually is. All of us from Maranga, many of our clients (even alone traveling women) and a whole bunch of surfers in general have tried it and would do it again. The flight price of Ryanair is mostly cheaper than most flights to Agadir – withal the on top extra charges.
