Frequently Asked Questions

Before booking your unforgettable surf holiday with us, we kindly ask you to take a moment to review our Terms and Conditions. It’s essential for a smooth and enjoyable experience for all. Click here to access the Terms and Conditions page. Thank you for your cooperation, and we can’t wait to welcome you to Dream Surf Morocco!

We are based in Tamraght, near Taghazout Bay, 14 kilometres North of Agadir, Morocco.

The easiest way to get to Dream Surf Morocco is by flying to Agadir Al Massira Airport (AGA). The airport is serviced by major air companies (Royal Air Maroc, EasyJet, Ryanair, WizzAir, British Airways, Transavia…) and is only a short 50 min ride to us, along a picturesque coastal road. Transfers to and from Agadir Airport are included for stays of 7+ nights. 

Alternatively, you can fly to Marrakech (RAK) or Essaouira (ESU) airports, respectively a 3h30 and 2h30 journey to Tamraght. These transfers are not included in the packages, but we would be happy to organise it for you. 

If you are travelling outside of Europe (USA, Australia…), you will most likely have to connect in Casablanca or at a European airport as there are no direct flights.

EU passport holders do not require a visa to enter Morocco for tourist purposes. Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay. If you hold a passport from outside the European Union we strongly recommend that you check with your nearest Moroccan Embassy.

Note: passport cads are not accepted in Morocco.

Most of Morocco has very good phone and internet coverage. Almost all phone operators work, but make sure to check with your provider about extra costs. 
Alternatively, you can buy a prepaid sim card at the airport (10€ for 10Giga and a very quick process), or there are plenty of public phones in Tamraght. The villa is equiped with free high-speed Wifi, and you can also find broadband internet in restaurants and cafes around town.

Currently we are able to accept cash

The local currency is Moroccan dirhams (MAD). There are ATMs at all international airports, and nearby in Aourir. Most small outlets and souks prefer smaller notes, something to bear in mind if you take large notes out of a cash machine.

Summer clothes for the days, warmer clothes for the evenings especially during the winter months, beach towel, a swim suit or board-shorts, sunscreen, a pen (for the form at the passport control on arrival/departure), sunglasses, flip flops, a beach bag. If you come with your hardware, remember to bring drifts, screws and the leash.

We provide you with towels for showering, however you will need to bring a towel for the beach.

Morocco is an Islamic country, but very moderate when it comes down to dress code. You can wear shorts and t-shirts. The swimsuits and bikinis can be worn on the beach, but nudity is not recommended (please be discrete when you go out). For women, it is advisable not to wear too provocative clothing. 

As it can get quite cold at nights – especially during the winter months – make sure to bring warm clothing too.

We strongly recommend getting comprehensive travel insurance before you leave. Some health insurance providers don’t cover extreme sports (such as surfing), so make sure to check any exclusions in your policy.

Apart from universal vaccinations (tetanus, polio, whooping cough, diphtheria, hepatitis B), no additional vaccination is required to visit Morocco.
Note: you will need to present a negative PCR test if you are not vaccinated against Covid.

This is no problem, so if you can’t come out for a full week, rather than putting you on a shorter package, we’ll actually build you up your own bespoke package. This means you can choose exactly what you fancy doing in your time with us. It may be that you have a late flight on your last day and you can squeeze in a full day surfing with us etc.

Yes, of course, just drop us a message! If you are able to spend more than a week with us, that would be fab. It creates a really nice atmosphere having people who have been out for a while mixing with new guests and we really want people to stay as long as they can with us. So yes, please do, just drop us a message and we’ll see what we can do on our rates for you.

No, but you can if you want. Prices shown on our site are “pp” – per person sharing a twin room (same gender) or a double with your partner. This means if you’re on your own you share the cost of the room and make a new friend. You can of course book the room to yourself as a private for an additional single room supplement if you prefer.

You can arrive at any time and any day of the week, but it will not always be possible to have your room ready before 3 p.m. If you wish to arrive earlier and your room is not available yet, we will take care of your luggage so that you can start your holiday peacefully. Departure time is officially 11a.m. but obviously also depending on your flight departure. Don’t hesitate to ask for a late check-out.

Yes, of course! We offer surf lessons and accommodation for all age ranges. We’d love to host your family here at Dream Surf Morocco, however children remain in the responsibility of the parent.

Vegetarian, vegan, gluten intolerant, allergies, etc. No problem, our team is here to cater for all you needs. Simply let us know at the time of booking and we will work around you.

Morocco offers a wide range of waves for all levels, so you could really take your whole quiver!
Bring equipment that suits your abilities best, and according to what kind of waves you want to surf.

The water can get cold during winter, so we recommend a good 3/2 or even a 4/3 wetsuit.
Summer months are warmer so bring your shorty or summer wetsuit as well as your 3/2. 

Board and wetsuit are included in the Surf Lesson and Surf & Yoga packages.
You can also rent our equipment if you don’t want to travel with your board. 

We provide 2-3 mm wetsuits.

Morocco is an all year outstanding surf holiday destination. There is no best time to visit, it’s up to what waves you want to surf or what weather you prefer. The Moroccan coast is famous for its huge variety of surf and the region has something for everyone, from ideal beginner waves to challenging reef ledges. You can’t be disappointed! Dream Surf Morocco is open all year round to cater for every surfer. 
Winter (September-May)
The winter period is when the swells are more consistent and you will find big sets rolling in.
The weather is still warm during the day but it can get chilly early mornings and evenings. Although it’s unlikely, there are chances of rain between November and February.
Summer (May-September)
The swell usually ranges from small to medium during summer and is perfect for beginners to intermediates.
July and August are the hottest months and temperatures can reach up to 35 degrees.

Yes, our instructors will organise the classes so that beginners, intermediates and experienced surfers feel comfortable and are in waves suitable to their level of experience. We want you to feel safe, continue to learn and have fun! For experienced surfers, you can book a surf guide to take you to the many spots we have along Morocco’s south coast.
Never surfed before? No worries, our surf coaches are experienced in teaching all levels of surfer. Come catch your first wave with us!

Morocco is a Muslim country, and Tamraght where Dream Surf Morocco is based, is a dry village which means you won’t be able to buy any booze or find “bars”. In the city of Agadir, you can buy alcohol in selected supermarkets and there is a range of restaurants and bars which serve alcohol. You are welcome to consume your alcohol at our camp, enjoy a post surf, roof terrace sun-downer.

The international country code for Morocco is +212. If calling from outside the country, you will need to dial your international operator code (+ on a mobile, or 00 for Europe, and 011 for the US and Canada) then the number. If you see a Moroccan phone number listed without 212 preceding it, you will need to add it. If calling locally, drop the 212 and add a 0 before the number.
Morocco is on 220 volts with European two-pin round plugs. Please bring a plug adaptor, if you expect you will need one. Note to Americans: leave your hairdryer at home, but your cell phone and laptop will be fine with just a plug adaptor, no converter needed.
If you are renting a car, please ensure you have a valid photo driving license. The law insists that you always carry your license and car hire documents with you when driving in Morocco. Seat belts must be worn at all times and mobile phone use while driving is a finable offense. Police and gendarme checkpoints are common along the routes and you must slow down or even stop and wait for them to wave you through. Watch out for police hiding with speed radar. They will stop you and fine you an on-the-spot payment. In Morocco, as in Europe/US driving is on the right. The main roads in the area are relatively new though are generally narrower and may sometimes have bumps and potholes, especially after periods of rain. We do ask that you take particular care when driving, especially when off-roading to check out surf spots, bearing in mind the conditions of your hire car rental agreement. Please park in a paid parking area or where there are others parked for your own safety as well as the car’s. Parking is usually 5 dirhams/day. If you are hiring a car with us, we provide roof straps.

The food available at restaurants is a mixture of Moroccan and international dishes. You can get some great couscous and tagines, but pizzas and hamburgers are served at most restaurants as well. Guiding and lessons packages include a buffet breakfast and a packed lunch with sandwiches and fruit. Tap water at our villa (not necessarily everywhere else though) is potable and technically safe for drinking, and certainly fine for cooking and brushing teeth, but we do not recommend that you drink large quantities. Bottled mineral water is cheap (5 dirhams) and available everywhere. Sometimes visitors suffer stomach upsets, but this often passes quickly (usually within 24 hours), so give yourself a break, drink plenty of water, and stay near a bathroom, if you can.

Not that any films really show what Morocco is like, but the classics are Hitchcock’s “The Man Who Knew Too Much” (1956) with Jimmy Stewart and of course, “Casablanca” (1942) with Humphrey Bogart. More modern ones with Morocco in the background are “Hideous Kinky” (1998) with Kate Winslet, “The Sheltering Sky” (1990), based on a book by Paul Bowles and starring John Malkovich, and “Babel” (2006) starring Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt. Great books about Morocco include the series of novels/stories written by Paul Bowles in the 1940s and 50s, most notably “The Spider’s House” and “Let It Come Down”, and recent works by Tahir Shah such as the Peter Mayle-esque “The Caliph’s House: A Year in Casablanca” and “In Arabian Nights: A Caravan of Moroccan Dreams”. There’s tons of Moroccan surf movies on YouTube and Vimeo as well!
