When the first decent low pressure systems arrive over the northern atlantic and send cold and grey weather over Europe – then it’s time to follow the waves and the sun southwards. To Morocco, the “kingdom of the West”. A country filled with impressive contrasts. Besides the cultural diversity, the diversified landscape, the unmatched hospitality of the locals and their delicious cuisine, we have chosen this place mainly because of two things: waves and weather.
An average of 330 days of sun per year with mild temperatures and very consistent waves between November and April are valid and sound arguments for exchanging winter’s frost for summerlike wave-experience. Perfectly peeling point-breaks for the advanced surfer and convenient beach breaks for the beginner – with water temperatures around 20 degree – that’s winter in Morocco.
About 160km south of Agadir you find the Camino Surfcamp Morocco in the city of Sidi Ifni. Far away from the already overcrowded stretch of Taghazoute/Tamrakht, literally this is a surfer’s dream coming true: Next to the very consistent reef-break on the doorstep of our hotel there is the famous right-hander “Promenades” about 10min walk away. On the bigger days there is a protected left-handed-wave breaking over reef about 5min with the car. Even if the swell’s pumping and the waves are firing, there are never many people in the water. That’s why here it’s all about: surfing and relaxing!
Sidi Ifni itself offers a beautiful time-travel as its architecture with colorful fountains, little squares and elegant stairways reminds of the not so distant Spanish history. However, as not everything is well kept of the Iberian remains, many buildings are in different states of dilapidation. Still, it’s worth the walk. Look out for the beautiful blue-patterned art-deco mosque.
Your best choice if you are traveling by yourself or with a companion is the Camino Surfcamp Morocco’s shared Apartment option: You sleep in a dorm-room and share the kitchen and bathrooms with other guests. For couples, upgrading to a two-bed-room (either with two single-beds or with a double-bed) might be of interest. The shared apartments are equipped with a kitchen and two bathrooms (European style) and host up to ten people max. Just around the corner you find a grocery store, a bakery as well as a cafe and a restaurant. Free Wifi available.REQUEST BOOK NOW
