REVIEW: Surf Berbere Morocco Surf Camp, Taghazout

Sun, surf, mint tea and tagine – here’s how I got on at Surf Berebere Surf Camp Morocco in Taghazout. Ideal for learners and experienced surfers!

Looking a Morocco surf camp to learn to surf at or explore some of the epic waves this country has to offer?

Surf Berbere is situated right in the centre of town and this Taghazout Surf Camp was my base for my latest trip to the land of tagine, mint tea and reeling right handers!

Here’s how I got on…

REVIEW: Surf Berbere Morocco Surf Camp, Taghazout

Where Is Surf Berbere?

The Surf Berbere Morocco surf camp is situated in the town of Taghazout – the surfing hotspot of Morocco. This once sleepy little fishing village is now a bustling hub of surfers escaping the European winter and on the hunt for some epic rides.

About an hours drive North of Agadir Airport (the most popular route to Taghazout – especially for those flying from the UK) or 3.5 hours from the busy souks of Marrakech – Taghazout is surrounded by a whole range of epic surf spots, for all levels of surfer.


The Surf Camp

Location wise, it’s hard to find a better spot – the Surf Berbere Taghazout surf camp is situated right in the centre of town, bang slap on the oceanfront –  easy walking distance from all the local shops and restaurants.

I won’t lie it’s not the most luxurious or modern setup, but it’s clean and comfortable. Lets face it – you’re going to be spending most of you time or the beach or the roof terrace anyway!

And the roof terrace – where you can chill out and also where you’ll enjoy your evening meals – has epic panoramas across the town and coastline. So make sure you bring your camera up there.

As you’d expect from 99% of places these days wifi is also included!

Just a 30 second stroll from the surf camp is Cafe KR, where you’re be served brekkie every morning, but also serves up a whole range of local and western meals too – everything from burgers to Tagine. 

Certainly one of my favourite spots to kick back with a refreshing mint tea and watch the waves!





The Apartments

Studio Apartments including the Boaud Apartment (where I stayed) are absolute beach front and include kitchenettes, modern bathrooms and epic balcony views. 

From my balcony at the Boaud Penthouse you could easily check the surf at Anchors (albeit in the distance!) Hash Point and Panoramas – all with your morning cup of coffee! A great spot of an oceanfront sunset too.

Apartments range from £60 per night through to £160 per night.

The Food

If you’re surfing all day then you need to be well fuelled – and the Surf Berbere Packages include some seriously hearty meals.

Kick start the day with a buffet brekkie at their beachfront cafe, top up with a packed lunch at the beach (usually salads or sandwiches) and then finish off the day with evening meals on the surf camp roof terrace – everything from tagine and cous cous (my personal favourite) through to BBQs and burgers.

…and if you’re veggie or vegan they can cater for you too, you just need to let them know in advance.



The Waves

Now onto the most important part – the waves!

Surf Berbere and Taghazout in general sit right in the middle of one of the most wave rich coastlines I’ve ever visited, and whatever your level of surfing there’s something for you.

Surf Camp Morocco surf berbere review taghazout surf spots learn to surf 4For beginners and intermediates spots like Devils Rock, KMs and Panoramas offer great spots to learn to surf, with long, spilling walls of white water as well as fun unbroken waves out back.

When it comes to more experienced and expert surfers the peak of Morocco surf season offer up some truly epic spots – including the famous Anchor Point, the most famous surf spots in Morocco. This reeling right hander will have your legs burning and offers up some hollow sections, as well as being able to handle some really solid swell size.

Other spots like Boilers and Killer Point are equally fun and challenging so if Anchors isn’t your things there are plenty of other options.

Honestly there are heaps of epic waves all along the coastline so you’ll be spoilt for choice!




Morocco Surf Season

Their Morocco surf camp is open year round – however the Morocco surf season is late September through to April, where you’ll score most consistent swells of the season.

If you’re an experienced surfer chasing the best of what Morocco has to offer then peak Morocco surf season is December through to March, when big Atlantic swells roll through and even the most fickle of spots light up.

So if you’re dreaming of that world class session at Anchor Point that’s the slot you’ll need to be aiming for!

Outside of the season experienced surfers should head elsewhere (unless you’re on a strike mission!), but beginners will have fun waves to learn on year round.


Surf Coaching & Surf Guiding

Surf Berbere is well geared up for all levels of surfer – offering both Learn to Surf packages as well as Surf Guiding packages too.

surf berbere morocco surf camp taghazout learn to surfFor those looking to learn to surf in Morocco your experienced surf instructors will take you along the coast to some of the amazing beginner beach breaks so you can progress on a fun, friendly, sandy bottom surf spot.

If you opt for the learn to surf package you’ll get 2 hours in the morning and another 2 hours in the afternoon – so over the week long package (which include 5 days of lessons) you’ll clock up heaps of time in the water, with all the gear you need all included.

As well as some amazing local coaches, Surf Berbere also has a mixture of international instructors as well, so you’ll get a good balance of techniques and training to help get you up and riding!

For experienced surfers you’ll be spoilt for choice, with your surf guides taking you to the best spots for the days conditions and of course your skill level too.

The Surf Guiding Package offer great value at just £230 per week, including 5 days of guiding (more about that below), but you will need to bring your own gear with you – so keep in mind that although the air temp will be warm, you’ll be wanting to pack a 3/2 suit!

Would I Recommend Surf Berbere?

I was stoked with my stay at Surf Berbere and everything from the food to the guides was great value.

And that’s probably one of the biggest takeaways from my stay – the packages they offer are epic value and for a winter escape from Europe you can’t go wrong with the waves on offer or the inclusions in the packages.

If you’re looking for a surf trip, to meet some new travel buddies and learn to surf, the camp itself provides and clean and comfortable base with good food.

For those looking for a bit more luxury the apartments are a welcome upgrade and you’ll certainly get a more comfortable and spacious place to head back to after a day in the waves, so it really depends on what you’re looking for.

The staff are always smiling and friendly and the international team are on hand to help out anytime too.

So if you’re looking for a Morocco surf camp that ticks all the boxes – Surf Berbere is a solid choice.
