What's not to like? Year 'round sun, world class waves, a local chef whipping up your every meal, sunrises over the Sahara and sunsets over the Atlantic, panoramic ocean views from our roof top terrace, after surf beers, wacky tobaccy in your shisha pipe.
And that's just the half of it!
Our packages are for everyone, from the seasoned surfer to those who simply want to wet their toes and sun their bellies. Our instructors specialise in teaching absolute beginners how to find their feet, and in taking those who want to step it up a bit to the multitude of world class waves dotted around this peninsular (you can see three of them from our terrace).
The basic 40 euro a surf day package is for accomodation and throw onto that some meals (have you ever TASTED Moroccan food? Soooo good!). This is perfect for those with their own boards, the independent souls amongst us. If you also wish a surf lesson each day and some board hire for 10€ more, however you like it we can tailor a package for you. Alls you need to do is get your flight down there (and we even help you sort that!)
Whilst you can see Morocco from the cities of Southern Spain, once you're on the ground you'll realise that you couldn't be further away... In a wonderful way!
This is North Africa baby! This is a place of camels and forts and snake charmers. Where date palms grow out of sandy deserts, and kids run up to your car snotty-faced asking for sweet, sweet candy.
Our surf palace is located in the south of Morocco, in the village of Taghazoute, near the resort city of Agadir. An area so lovely the King of Morocco has his beach palace down there. Here the High Atlas Mountains complete their run down to the North Atlantic Ocean, where goats reside in trees and where fishermen make their nightly drift out to the horizon on seaworthy car tyre inner tubes.
Taghazoute is a stereotypical North African fishing village, with a series of narrow lanes winding either side of the one road, Highway 1, which runs through it's middle and provides the village's central focal point. Along this road there are a handful of shops, a market place and mosque and a few hotels. You can walk through Taghazoute along Highway 1 from end to end in about 5 minutes, which is taking into account stopping to pat cats and high five locals.
*A note on the terrace: Because it deserves it. This terrace is amazing and is definitely the focal point of the house. This is where we eat, drink tea, share stories, chug beers and smoke hookah. This is the place where you can play a game of chess or kiss a beautiful stranger. We BBQ up here, we surf the net, we sloth around and we dry our wetsuits. From this terrace you can check the surf at three of Morocco's best breaks, from this terrace the sunset will burn so bright and beautiful your eyes will bleed, from this terrace the sounds of a Moroccan fishing village will drift up and mingle with chatter from all around the world. This is the terrace.
The best of all worlds. Fly into Marrakech and be met at the airport by our legendary guide, spend a night in this famous North African city in a hotel by the main square, the world famous Djemaa el Fna, shop until you drop and then shop some more, bath yourself in a traditional bath house (we'd love to say that nudity is optional, but sometimes it just ain't. When in Marrakech...) and eat dinner surrounded by snake charmers.
The next day we set off along the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains to the coast. This short drive takes us through some truly breathtaking landscapes where the 30 degree desert heat is complimented by the high snow-capped mountains to the south. One of the world's greatest short drives. Upon our arrival in Taghazoute, surf city Morocco, we'll go for a surf. Then we'll lay in the sun. Then we'll go home and smoke some shisha and drink some beers and socialise like chimps until we decide it's time to either a) go to bed, b) start a beach party, or c) head into rocking Agadir for a night on the tiles. In any case we'll be having one whale of a time.
Once we wake up we wash the cobwebs away with coffee and massive breakfast before hitting the waves again. Then we pack it all and head to Marrakech, so we can get our flights back to the real world, loaded with souvenirs, sun tans and an addiction to surfing that will last forever.
A day at the Morocco Surf Palace:

2pm - lunch on the beach or at the surfhouse

9pm - free time
camel rides, horse rides, jet ski rides, trip to the soukh market in Agadir, exploring the town, swimming, sun baking, hiking, cliff jumping, trip to Paradise Valley, visit the hammam (bathhouse), drinking Moroccan beer, and much more.
Night time activities include: party nights in Agadir, movie nights, dinners in our favourite restaurants in town, beach BBQ and bonfires, watching the sunset from a surfboard, playing cards on the terrace.
Ways to get to the camp
Come fly to us...
This is really the only practical way to get here. Because it's on another continent fool! (Unless you live in Africa, thereby making us the fool) Anyway, to get here grab a flight to either Agadir, which is the airport nearest the surf palace, or to Marrakech, which is also close-ish and usually cheaper, and with more frequent flights.
The airlines we usually fly with are Ryanair, Easyjet and Royal Air Maroc. Like with most of these trips the earlier you book the cheaper it will be. So book now homegirl!
If you are flying to Agadir we will preorder a taxi for you. They don't cost the earth, especially when you are traveling in a group (and we'll let you know if anyone else on your flight is coming to the palace so y'all can share).
If you land in Marrakech you can either prearrange a taxi to take you to the Surf Palace, or make your own was here on the public bus (see details below). In any case we'll go through all of this with you personally when you book.
