This beach is a nice one. Good for surfing or relaxing. It is within walking distance of the city/village. Think you could do kite surfing but you need to bring your own equipment. However surfing boards and wetsuits can be borrowd in shops in Tanghazout.

I did go there once. I'm not a surfer, just a tourist, but you could watch surfers falling in here, which is quite fun. But it was a bit hustly with people pestering you to buy everything from camel rides to peanuts

It's a smaller quieter beach than Agadir (if that's what you want?) but good atmosphere and things to do. Good area for surfing and picnicking.

long sandy beaches, the village of Taghazout provides loads of restaurants where you can drink a coffee/mint tea and have the best views at the surfers below. Only downside I found is the trash everywhere, the locals have the habit of dumping their rubbish in riverbeds or along the roads which makes it look like a landfill, I really hope... More

This was labeled as non-touristy and off the beaten track. When we arrived (after a 30 minute drive) we were disappointed. The village itself is very dirty and run down. The beach is filthy (as you might expect from all the camels and horses on it) and there is a lot of litter. It is overlooked by a construction site... More

We had high expectations for this location but found it bland.If you are a surfer its worth a visit but if not you will have stray starving dogs looking for affection :(and young boys in charge of camels who are irresponsible.They were sent out to earn money from one main camel ride seller who was elderly but were clearly doing...

Lovely beach, good for teens to go and spend time there rather than younger children but all in all, any beach you visit in Morocco is always clean and beautiful.

The best thing is probably not the beach itself, but the fact that there are several spots easy to reach either by car or by bus.

Grossly over-rated as a beach. The surfing brigade have moved in with all the accompanying noise and distractions. Stick to Agadir beach and you will enjoy it much more.
