Holiday Itinerary

Spend 7 nights at this friendly and locally-run surf camp in the relaxed, surfing village of Tamraght. Laid back vibes, good company, homemade local cooking and excellent surf conditions in this picturesque area of Morocco make this a surf and yoga holiday not to be missed.

The instructors are up early each day to scout the best locations for you to get the most out of your surfing day, and there’s plenty of choice for excellent surf spots. The instructors are always on hand to offer you personalized guidance, regardless of your level.

Groups are kept small so that instructors can ensure personal tuition and you’ll have 4 hours of surf lessons each day in the mornings and afternoons so you’ll be catching waves in no time.

Your day will start or end with an uplifting yoga session, perfect for stretching your muscles after an active surfing session. Yoga sessions will take place on the local beach or on the roof terrace of the camp overlooking the rooftops and sea below.

Accommodation is set in a beautiful traditional Berber house, with shared rooms and private rooms, satellite TV, WiFi, 3 communal rooms, and a beautiful roof terrace which provides a great space for you to relax in or socialise with other surfers.

Meals are enjoyed together on the roof terrace at breakfast and dinner and you will enjoy homemade, healthy, Moroccan specialties cooked fresh for you daily by an in-house chef.

Tamraght is one of Morocco’s top destinations for surfing, with world-class waves right at your doorstep! The village looks out over the Atlantic Ocean, has the beautiful Atlas Mountains behind it, and gets over 300 days of sun a year. A perfect year-round destination for surfers.
