The baths are both a social meeting place and a place to relax, enriching both the mind and body: this is an experience you should not miss while you are in Morocco. The hot steam dilates blood vessels and helps the body to relax. Rough skin floats away, toxins are eliminated, muscle pain alleviated and your stress released!

BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE
Perfectly exposed for a N/W swell coming down, generated by depressions from Northern Atlantic, the Moroccan coast gets all kind of waves. Thanks to the wind protection in some rocky beachbreak spots, conditions can turn out fantastic in winter with 1 to 3.50m waves.
From May to September, conditions are more hazardous and less regular but you can have some very good sessions.
In winter, the moderate offshore winds blow N/E giving amazing conditions from October to April. From May to September, the “Chergui”, a warm N/W wind blows and can spoil the quality of the sessions.
Tides vary between 0.6 to 2 meters and may affect the non-profound water spots.
Many sea-urchins and rocks – bring boots.
You need a 3/2mm wetsuit from November to April with a water temperature between 16°C and 19°C. From May to October, a swimsuit, a top or a springsuit is sufficient.
- MOROCCO’S SOUTH ZONE -
-Agadir : Large sandy bay where some beachbreak peaks unroll and have a tendency to close up to 1.20m. Walking South towards Oued Massa’s river mouth, close to the Presidential Palace, some quality peaks. An alternative when the coast saturates.
-Bo & Co 2 : Beachbreak that can prove fantastic (it depends of the sand-bank). A fairway takes you to the spot without paddling and without the wave crashing above your head. It starts in a powerful basin offering you a very tight tubular right and/or a left that has a propensity for turning around itself even with a very hollow section. This spot works from 30cm to 2m, 2.50m max and need little swell on the usual spots, very sensitive to the wind. For every surfer.
-Bo & Co 3 : Very good-quality right and left on flat stones that can end up under the sand according to the time. The environment is gorgeous, needs a little swell on the usual spot. For intermediate surfers.
-The 11 and the 12 : very nice lefts, tubular during the first section on a rocky flat stone, reef wave feeling when take-off – to surf especially in low, rising tide.
-Banana : Long right coming from a cliff and ending up on a pebble or sand beach. This low tide wave can be extraordinary, turning into a nice right left peak and sheltered from the Northern wind in the rising tide.
-Devil's Rock : Small beach isolated between two rock advances. Beachbreak that can almost always be surfed with some very good-quality waves sometimes.
-Tamghart / Crocodile : Nice and quite easy wave – usually for beginners –
-La Pointe aux Ancres : The left can be very fun, can be surfed in high tide. The right, mythic Southern Moroccan wave unrolls on the flat stone. It needs a consistent swell or high tide coefficients. The quality of the wave depends of the sand silt up. The launching in water and the way out are sometimes hard so look around before jumping in the water – often a lot of people and some stones…
-Mysteries – La Source : Risky right according to the sand silt up, starting from a rock vein. Although it can be awesome, the surfers often sulk it. A great opportunity for a quiet surfing session between friends.
-Killer Point : a long right on the flat stone working in various size and composed of 3 sections :
- the first one, the farther is a large basin- the middle one, much longer than the 1st one is composed of lots of quick sections- the inside, long and hollow, is smaller and steadier.
When the swell is quite heavy (1.50m), those sections can be connected and the wave allows a 300m surfing. From this size, the wave current and power become dangerous and require a very technical surfing.
-Bo & Co 1 : Very pretty spot with rocky flat stones in front of a little cliff, in a gorgeous and deserted place. A good swell is necessary to work, you can also surf at La Pointe and Killer to surf peacefully, the spot is working from 1m without a size limit.
Long right made of hollow sections, the quality and the difficulty of the spot depend on the sand level covering the rocks. Not easy coming in and out the water in high tide. For intermediate surfers.
-Bouilloire : also known for its sea-urchins, this is a spot that well-receive the swell. Offshore wind, sideshore by a Northern wind, a very good right on the flat stone of the rock. Not many waves, very quickly crowded and can be surfed from low to half-tide. Not easy launching and coming out of the water for those who are not used to rocks, boots are recommended. Reachable for regular level surfing.
-Dracula : Impressive place, incredible right, probably the most powerful of all, reserved for very good surfers, can handle heavy swells, difficult launching, and uncertain coming out of the water.
-Tamri : A beachbreak that takes well the swell in little condition days.

The first trip! With a Renault 4L, a bicolour Super 5, a Nevada break, a Peugeot courier or an old VW Euro van…The road is going to be long, heading due South.Worry, anxious, sick of winter, dreaming about waves unrolling near Safi, la pointe des Ancres, la Banane, Bouilloires or more down South at the entrance of the desert…If you want to learn more about surfing, you need to stop there.
This is the ideal excursion from October to May to get ready before the season on the French coasts.
In the Western minds, Morocco embodies all the Eastern seductions. A myth that is still establishing itself: Marrakech, Rabat’s mosques, Fes’ medina, an adventure from the Atlas Mountains to the desert’s immensity…You definitely have to understand the romantic fascination that Morocco has exerted on the Western artists.Imperial cities, Berber Kasbahs, sumptuous mosques…the former French protectorate knows how to take the various faces of an Eastern charmer.
Its gastronomy reveals new tastes in every meal; its snowy summits and its canyons seduce those who are insensitive to the vastness of the desert’s charm. Its coastal towns are resting-places after the visit of the medinas, its cities take turn with the red-ochre ramparts and the doors slightly carved and gilded.
Morocco is a country bordering both seas: the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.In the Centre, the Rif and Atlas Mountain chains that block the scenery. From this diversity of grounds was born a great variety of Moroccan landscapes which are among the most beautiful of the world.
The Atlantic coast is spreading out 2 800 km wide, whereas the Mediterranean coast only has 530 km of coast. It is bordered of plains (Sebou, Mesema and Sous) which are the most populated and rich regions of the country.Beautiful beaches, harbours, and large centres like Casablanca, Safi and Rabat are following one another.
A valid Passport is required for travelling without any hotel reservation. European Union nationals whose stay (3 hotel nights max) has already been paid at a travel agency can be satisfied with their national ID.
Today, like every Arabic country, we distinguish the classic Arabic (or literary, accessible to the literate people) which is the language of education, administration and medias from the dialectal Arabic, spoken language that change according to the regions and the social classes.Berber is the second language, used in many Moroccan regions. Most Moroccans who went to school can speak French.
No vaccine is required by the authorities for those coming from Europe. Some vaccines yet are useful for the traveller’s own safety.

DRIVING CONDITIONS :
Moroccans have their own way to read the road signs. Here, everything can happen; therefore you need to pay attention.You should not drive at night. In case of accident, call right away the consulate and then the Police (very often you are first locked up and you may talk later).
WATER / ELECTRICITY :
Avoid fresh juices outside of hotels, ice cubes, milk and seafood outisde hotels or restaurant. The mineral water has to be opened in front of you.
