About us

What is the Best Time to Surf in Taghazout?

The swell season in Taghazout is from October till April. This means the Autumn and Winter months in Taghazout will have the best waves for advanced surfers looking to catch larger waves. However, if you are still new to the wonderful world of surfing, you will find that Taghazout has excellent surf spots all year round.

Another advantage of surfing in Taghazout, is the year-round warm weather. Morocco is blessed with 300 days of sun, even in the winter. However, as the average water temperature in Taghazout lingers between an average of 69.6°F / 20.9°C in September and 63.5°F / 17.5°C in February, it is best to bring a wetsuit for your surf trip to Taghazout.

What are the best Surf Spots in Taghazout?

In the Taghazout region, you will find some of the most popular surf spots in all of Morocco. We have listed some of our favorites below.

  • Desert Point.
    Desert Point is a famous surf break with one of the longest right-hand waves. It starts working with 5 ft up. Bigger swells produce waves and fast sections. Most of the time, Desert Point works with offshore winds that can really produce a perfect wave – meaning point breaks in low tide instead high tide.
  • Dracula’s.
    Dracula’s has one of the best waves in the south of Morocco. This surf spot gets its fascinating name due to its sharp rocks like vampire’s teeth. This is one of the most demanding spots and therefore, only recommended for advanced surfers. It can get really tricky paddling out and in, as Dracula’s produces waves with northerly big swell, and can be one of the best waves to surf during your surf trip to Morocco.
  • Killer’s Point.
    With one of the best point breaks, Killer’s Point is considered the most consistent of all the point breaks in the South of Morocco. This 400m long wave has a lot to offer when it comes to speed sections and barrels. During low tide on small swells, the waves start at the north end of the cliff, providing a short left and a sectioning right. When the swell picks up, vertical walls provide barrels and very hollow sections. It can be a very long paddling when it’s high tide, while paddling out in low tide is a lot easier.
  • Anchor Point.
    Anchor Point is considered one of the best surf spots in all of Morocco, famous for its clean lines and consistency on all tides. Anchor Point can handle up to 13ft with massive swell. Its point breaks come with sand and reef bottoms with three different sections, where you can go for cover-ups and turns at the first two sections and the last one just gets quite hollow and fast. It can be a long wave of about 400m if the sections connect…
  • La Source.
    La Source has really nice waves for all levels, both right and left hand. Right-hand waves can be longer than left hands, because of the detection of the swell. Reef sections combined with sandy sections make for long, clean waves. This surf spot is located between the famous Anchor Point and Killer’s Point.
