1- Taghazout beach, agadir
Taghazout is known around the world as an excellent surf spot. Surfers from all over the world meet in “wave season” to indulge in their favorite sport.
The village, which has few inhabitants during normal periods, is teeming with people. Once you get there, you feel the festive atmosphere all around you. Taghazout, then, becomes “the seaside resort” of the moment, with all its authenticity.
In this small Berber village, the spectacle of the waves hitting its rocky coasts is quite extraordinary. But, thanks to its natural diversity, you can also find magnificent sandy beaches as far as the eye can see. Want a fancy jet ski ride? Want to eat fresh squid in the morning while facing the sea? Want to laza around on a deckchair while sipping a freash fruit juice? Taghazout offers the essentials for a pure relaxation. Don’t miss giving it a visit!
2- Sidi ifni, legzira beach
A few kilometers near Sidi Ifni, we discover Legzira, the red beach, known for its vertiginous cliffs in ocher color flowing into the ocean, and its 4 splendid arches carved into the rock by the tides. The geological meeting of the Anti-Atlas and the Atlantic Ocean gave life to this surprising work of natural art. It is reached by descending 200 steep steps from the small tourist complex which has (unfortunately) taken over the place. Vacationers, mostly Moroccan families, invade the beach during the summer, but it is enough to get away from the tourist hubbub to find yourself alone in front of the majesty of nature. It’s at sunset that magic happens. The evening sun dyes the walls with a palette of sparkling red. The last rays of the day make their way through the crevices inside the natural caves carved by the waves. It is really amazing!
3- Oualidia beach
Not very far away from the tourist office of EL Jadida by car, this exceptional and impressive lagoon will not leave you indifferent. The lagoon offers you several sandy and rocky beaches. The water is a bit cold, but the place is so magical that you forget the temperature to enjoy swimming or having a boat trip in the lagoon. You can also eat freshly caught sea urchins, fish or shellfish on the beach, which will be grilled and served on site.
4- Moulay bouselham beach
Located between Kénitra and the town of Souk Larbaa du Gharb, Moulay Bousselham beach is divided into two sites, the first known as “Hawai”, a spot for surfers and swell lovers, and the other called “the pool” reserved for bathers and swimmers. This beach is known for its calm waters. The place also has one of the most beautiful lagoons in Morocco, called Merja Zerga.
