Surf Coaching Packages are surf lessons combined with accommodation and all meals, transport… This option is most popular for beginner surfers (those who have never surfed before or have only tried it).
Our experienced surf instructor Amine will help you develop surfing skills, teach you how to paddle, pop up & ride your first wave.
We have been sharing the fantastic waves of our region with friends for the last 25 years. Our surf guiding packages will help our visitors to explore some less accessible surf spots. We check the waves from the Surf castle and immediately know which surf spot is the best of the day. Then, we drive you to the spot and either surf with you or film you, on your request.
SURF HOSTEL MOROCCO is located in the surf village of Tamraght 14kms north of the coastal city of Agadir in Morocco.
Morocco has direct flights from the UK and other major European airports, with flight times to Agadir between 2-4 hours. Guests travelling from the US can connect either in Casablanca or at a European airport as there are no direct flights to Agadir. From Agadir airport we are a 45 minute drive south east along the coast road. Road transfers from Marrakech can be easily arranged and take 4 – 5 hours and cost approx 100€ for 4 people (max 4 people) by car. Please contact us if you would like us to arrange a transfer or would like a quote.

The currency here is the Moroccan Dirham. 1 Euro is roughly 10 to 11 Dirham. You can exchange at the airport and at some ATMs. You can withdraw from most ATMs if you have standard debit/credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, etc. Credit cards are generally not accepted as a form of payment, so you need to exchange before you get to Tamraght. Banana Village is the closest town with an ATM (a 5 minute drive from the surf camp).
You can use it if you have roaming. Otherwise, you can purchase a local simcard for about 50 Dirham at any shop.
We have Wifi 24/7 at the Surfhouse and various restaurants in town have Wifi.
A fun attitude and we will take care of the rest!
There’s surf all year round, but it really picks up over the winter months (November-February). The sun shines for 300 days on average in a year, so it’s sunny! The weather in summer is hot with temps averaging around 27 degrees Celsius, and some days in the high 30’s. The water is warmer, so a thin wetsuit will due or just a rashy and boardies. In winter, the average temp is around 20 degrees Celsius. It is chillier in the mornings and evenings and the water is decidedly colder, so a wetsuit is a must, unless you’re super hard core.
We rent a range of long boards, short boards, mals, mini-mals, and foam-topped long boards for beginners. You are welcome to bring your own if you have as well. There are many different reef, beach and point breaks, so all types of boards can be used here.
Tamraght and Taghazout (a 5 minute drive from camp) have many restaurants, surf shops, surfboard repair places, a pharmacy, a laundromat, a butcher, various mini-markets, and a traditional market once a week. Wifi is available at most cafes. There is also a bus to Agadir every half hour from 10am-8pm for only 8 Dirhams.
In Taghazout (a 5 minute drive) you can buy anything from boardies, rashies, bikinis to surfboards, equipment, towels, sandals, etc.
You will need mostly summer beach clothes such as shorts, t-shirt, singlets, bathing gear, and sandals. Bring a pair of jeans and a jumper for the evenings, a towel (we don’t supply these), passport, camera, hat, and sunnies.
If you choose a packaged deal, you will get a hearty breakfast with local breads, preserves, cream cheese, yoghurts and some days, even crepes! For lunch you will get a baguette with the filling of the day plus mineral water and fresh fruits. For dinner each night, we dine on traditional Moroccan food cooked by our local in-house chefs. These are talented ladies and their delicious dishes range from tagines to couscous to Moroccan meatballs (Kefta) to BBQ and many other specialities.
We are all about personalization. We understand you only get a certain time off work and want to make the most of your experience. Therefore, we are able to provide tips from locals and want to be sure you get the most out of your trip with us! Most importantly, our staff is experienced and want to be sure your vacation is everything you would dream it would be.
No we don’t, so remember to bring one. If you are staying a while it may be better to bring two towels – one for the beach and one for showering.
Tamraght is a dry village, meaning it does not sell alcohol. You can, however, buy alcohol at various places in Agadir and it is allowed to be brought into the surfhouse . It is not allowed on the streets. You are encouraged to be sensible about the amount you consume so you do not offend the locals in this tiny Muslim village.
In the evenings, we are usually exhausted from a day of surfing, so spend our time chilling on our terrace , chatting, watching surf movies/comedy/movies, playing cards or dice games and just relaxing. on Friday or Saturday nights, we sometimes head into Agadir to party at the clubs and pubs there.
If you’re surfed out, you can tan on the beach, take a camel or horse ride, or shop in the local curio shops. You can go hiking in the surrounding areas to beautiful caverns overlooking the bay. You can take a trip to the local souk market in Agadir or hang out at the Marina there. You can go to the traditional Hammam (bathhouse) and get a massage. You can rent a car and cruise up the coast or go to Paradise Valley (40mins drive away) and swim in the rock pools. Most of all, this is a place to relax and chill.
The voltage in Morocco is usually 220 V, and outlets will fit the two-prong Europlug. This is the plug used primary in Europe and many other countries with two round prongs.
American and Canadian appliances, which are made to use with 110 V may be damaged if pluged into a 220V socket, even if you use an adaptor. If your appliance is “dual-voltage”, it should be fine (it’s designed for both 110 and 220 V). If not, you’ll need a power converter as well as an adaptor.
Medical facilities are good in Agadir but comprehensive health insurance and travel insurance is advisable. If you are unable to pay or are not insured you may be refused treatment. The village of Tamraght has a pharmacy run by a qualified pharmacist.
We do our best to be sure you are safe in the water and be sure you are getting the most out of your surf lesson with our coaches. We’ll be honest, surfing is not an easy sport to pick up but we want to be sure you are having fun while learning a skill that will stick with you wherever your next travels might take you!
Sunset is a small hostel with 5 rooms and biiig terrace with marvellous view on the see and in the evening on a magic sunsets.. Rooms are nice and every place in the hostel is very clean!
The owners are soo friendly and helpful, beside that, Miriam is an excellent cook.. (tasty breakfasts and best tajines in all Marooc). Abdoull can arrange all nearby trips, he took us to Paradise Valley and it was one of ours highlight, while staying in Tamragh.. They also have all equipment for surfing, for kids also.. We had an amazing time and kids were crying when it was time to say goodbye..
All this makes Sunset surf house so enchantingly beautiful..
For sure will be back in 2016:)
We spent almost 3 weeks with our 3 year old kid at Sunset Surfhouse. Abdoull and his team were absolute lovely.
We took the option of breakfast and dinner… And I have to tell it is among the best traditional morrocan food that can be found in the area !
The rooms and lounge area are decorated with good taste, the internet is fast (which is not usual in small town in Morrocco).
Most of the time was spent on surfing and the rest was sightseeing up to 2h driving north or south….
Amazing location, you can rent your surf equipment if you need to (about a 3 minute walk to the rental place) and a 5 minute walk down to the beach (Devil’s Rock)- there are even people who sell coffee on the beach which is amazing after a few hours in the sea!!!
Abdhul and Mariam are the lovliest hosts and I really felt at home. I decided to make my own meals as I can not eat wheat, but Mariam whipped up some delicious gluten free deserts anyway!!!!
The hostel is clean and calm and there was always lots of laughter while I was there 🙂
My boyfriend and I spent a week at Sunset Surfhouse and we couldn’t have a better experience! it’s just few minutes away from the beach and has everything you need for a great stay…free wifi, clean rooms and shared bathroom, rich breakfast and rooftop terrace where we tasted the AMAZING home made food made by Abdoull’s wife!
We took the surf package with two meals per day (recommended) so we also had a guide who took us to the perfect spots to surf the perfect waves! It was my first time surfing and Marouane (the surf guide) was such a good teacher that by the end of the week I managed to catch some good waves!We also met some nice people at the house and enjoyed going surfing together.
Such a friendly enviromnet, we highly recommend you choose Sunset surfhouse for your easy going and relaxing surf trip!!
this is the place to stay in tamraght! The owner Abdoull will make sure that you have the possible stay in tamraght. It’s just a few minutes walk to the best surf spots, and you can always ask Marouane for some advices and even rent surfboards and -suits in the hostel or in Marouanes surf shop just round the corner… Don’t miss to meet these guys! and eat a nice couscous with them on the rooftop =)
