HOLIDAYS – BEACHES & SURF
Journey from Agadir: 25 Minutes
The fishing village of Taghazout and the area of Aourir and Tamraght, are today considered the best surfing area for pros and beginners. The village of Taghazout, on the roadside, remains authentic despite the important culture – surfing. The main beach is ideal for swimming, but during and after the summer holidays, the influx of tourists can sometimes surprise.
