The journey can take place any day of the week and weekend and at any time. We will arrange the transfer from the airport after receipt of your flight details.
8. Accommodation and surroundings
We are very happy to offer to our guests, nice accommodations, good and sufficient food and a great program, because that is not evident to everyone in Morocco.
The standard in these accommodations is not always comparable to the Northern European, yet we have very nice accommodation of various categories. The environment and the surrounding areas are in a constant state of flux because the coastline is specially been developed for tourism between Tamraght and Taghazout.
On the one hand, it enhances the tourist facilities and the long-awaited infrastructure, on the other hand places loose a little of its original charm. Nevertheless provides our cost perfect waves and countless surf spots for all levels.
9. Starting dates
Our surf lessons usually start the day after the arrival. Friday is our “Day Off”. Otherwise you can join at any time in the course. For stays longer than 7 nights, the surf course, if possible, lengthens as follows: 9-10 days = 7 day course, 11 nights = 8 day course, 12-13 nights = 9 day course, 14-16 nights = 10 day course.
You are fully catered in the Villa Azur. We mainly offer Moroccan cuisine with lots of fresh vegetables, delicious tagines and couscous. Please let us know when booking if you have any special dietary requirements (vegetarian / allergies / others).
11. Best season, length of stay
To record of achievement, we recommend a minimum stay of one week with a five-day surf course. So you can go to different surf spots, fix your acknowledges and have enough time to enjoy the country and meet people.
High season to guarantee waves, is between October and end of March. The water temperature is around 18 degrees and the air temperature during the day between 20 and 27 degrees. In the evening it can be cooler – especially from December to end of February.
12. What should I bring?
Please bring your own beach towels. We also recommend you to bring sunscreen and sun protection for the head.
At the beach you can you usually stay in shorts and swimsuit. However, in the city (or anywhere outside of the beach), it is advisable to wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees.
For the cool evening hours, sweaters, vests and maybe some warm socks are suitable.
In Taghazout and Tamraght there are several shops for daily needs, surf shops, and souvenir shops.
In Agadir, there are also some large supermarkets, alcohol stores and various shops with clothing, souvenirs and Moroccan handicrafts. There is also a Rip Curl Surf Shop.
Typical of a stay in an African country is the “bargain”, which is common not only with tourists but also among the locals. This, for us, northern Europeans, might not be in the blood, but it is a part of the African culture and can, if you’re getting into it, even make fun. However, food, daily necessities, food and beverages in restaurants have a fixed price, so do not try to dot it here!
14. Nightlife & alcohol
Alcohol is not served in public places in Taghazout and Tamraght where there are no bars or pubs and therefore no real nightlife.
“Agadir Nightlife” is one of the activities we propose, which can be organized and booked on site with us. In Agadir, there are bars, pubs and discos. There is also the opportunity to purchase alcoholic beverages in a supermarket in Agadir and bring them to the camp.
15. Medical care
For a trip to Morocco no vaccinations are needed. There are good hospitals in Agadir in case of a medical emergency. An ambulance comes on request to our accommodations, if necessary. Please make sure that you have signed up travel insurance before departure. In Taghazout and Aourir there are pharmacies open around the clock.
