Sometimes plans change, whether you’re passing through and you’d like to stay with us, or you’re already here and you want to stay longer. Here at Local Surf Maroc we have few plans, so just let us know what you’re interested in and we will be able to guide you to the most suitable activities available. After all, our aim is to ensure that you leave with fond memories of Morocco.
While we do surfing best, there is so much more to our coastline and our country. You could spend several months traveling around Morocco, however, if you’ve come to stay with us we have curated some special experiences and activities that can be done in a day.
The Old City & The Souk
Walk or drive up to the Old City and visit the Kasbah ruins that overlook Agadir Harbour and the bay. The walk can take an hour, but the view is stunning and well worth the effort!
The Agadir Souk is the traditional market in Agadir, and one of the largest in the region. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and scents of the market, with stalls selling anything from local fruits, freshly caught fish, to traditional mint tea. If you’re feeling brave why not give haggling a try!
If you catch the Agadir Souk on the day it’s closed, there are other equally impressive Souks to experience.
Paradise Valley is just that: Paradise. It’s an oasis of natural pools, palm trees, and rock formations that is the perfect day trip from the coast. From Tamraght, it’s a 40 min journey to the edge of the Atlas Mountains, and then a 30 min walk through the vallies. Enjoy the calm as you eat a Tagine cooked that day beside the river.
First becoming popular in the 1960’s for its surf and beaches, it remains one of the most popular surfing destinations. Mountains surround the beaches from all sides making it one of the most idyllic locations to surf or chill out.
Essaouira is known as “the windy city”. Its 3 hours further north along the coast and a quaint little fishing village. Do a bit of wind surfing, take a stroll through the smaller market, or take in the picturesque Old Fort structures that have been used as a backdrop for “Game of Thrones” . Along with the live music and food that Essaouira has been traditionally known for, it’s not hard to see why it’s been given UNESCO Heritage status!
Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco and boasts a rich history. It’s currently one of the busiest cities with its souks (markets) and captivating entertainment in the Jemaa el-Fnaa square. Spend a day or a week, there will always be a new corner to discover.
