taghazout, morocco

Six kilometres from Tamraght, the laid-back fishing village of Taghazout, once famous for calamari and hippies, is now considered Morocco’s premier surfing destination for both pros and learners.

HIGHLIGHTS OF TAMRAGHT & AOURIR

Aourir en Tamraght staan samen bekend als Banana Village vanwege de bananenboomgaarden naast Oued Tamraght, die de dorpen van elkaar scheidt. Respectievelijk ongeveer 12 km en 14 km ten noorden van Agadir, delen ze Banana Beach, wat goed kan zijn voor beginnende surfers aan de zuidkant. Aourir heeft faciliteiten zoals een benzinestation, een postkantoor en banken.
