Skiing - Morocco

Morocco has thousands of kilometres of ocean coast making it a fine, if underrated, surfing destination. Plage Mehdiya has reliable year-round breaks, and there are a few other places further up the coast towards Larache. Anchor Point in Agadir has been recommended, although it can be very inconsistent. Taghazout , close by, is a laid-back spot popular with surfers. Surf Maroc (www.surfmaroc.co.uk) runs a great surf camp here for all levels.
Essaouira has been singled out by some surfers, though it’s a far better windsurfing destination.
Perhaps the best breaks in the country are just north of Safi. The Lalla Fatna beach is the point of access and has drawn some of the biggest names in surfing for some of the longest tubular right-handers in the world. Other beaches in the vicinity of Safi are also worth checking out. For reliable information contact Surfland (Apr–mid-Nov) in Oualidia or Dream Surf Oualidia (hyear-round) on the beach in town. Surfland is also a great place for beginners’ lessons, which take place in the sheltered bay. For further details see p149 . There’s also good surf to be found around Rabat and El-Jadida .
