Panoramas

You’ll find Panoramas off the shores of Banana Beach. This particular surfing spot is excellent for beginners as the smaller waves provide the perfect platform to work on your surfing skills. Don’t be fooled though as on occasions this particular surfing spot can provide some truly remarkable waves that will really test your surfing ability. As it’s a short walk from the main road it can be easily accessed and there are also some rental apartments nearby if you plan on making surfing a top priority on your holiday.

Tamri-morocco

Tamri

If you’re struggling to find a good day of surfing in Taghazout, the small fishing village that regularly hosts surfers from all over the world, you can always head north to Tamri. Tamri offers glorious views with beautifully coloured waters which is probably why it’s regarded as one of the top beach destinations in Morocco. It’s also capable of providing some testing waves for surfers, so make sure you take your board with you when you visit this unlikely surfing destination just in case.

Hash Point

If you’re still wary of Anchor Point or you just don’t want to make the slightly longer journey, try Hash Pont instead. Again, it’s close to some rental apartments making it particularly easy to get to. Whilst the waves are often quite relaxed it can be a fun experience nonetheless. When there are no waves around, there’s certainly a positive social vibe with fellow surfers regularly taking to the waters.

Anchor point

A truly epic spectacle on its day, you can’t dispute the fact the Anchor Point is probably one of the most famous waves you’ll ever get the privilege of experiencing. The spectacular rocky shore runs all the way down to Taghazout but its offshore where the fun begins. It has a notable consistency throughout winter, producing outstanding waves that test even the most skilled surfers. You’re likely to experience some significant barrels here with the odd tube thrown in from the rocky point as an added bonus. A must visit for any avid surfer.

  1. I don’t think I’d even think of morocco when it comes to surfing. I always think more of cornwall and newquay and australia and west coast america. Great informative post

  2. I am not an avid surfer but would love to visit those places as well
