Getting to Sol House Taghazout Bay

Taghazout Bay is nestled right in the middle of a string of beautiful fishing villages and stellar surf spots off the southern coast of Morocco. Just north of Tamraght and south of Essaouira, it’s only 40 minutes from the international airport of Agadir.

As students of the surf academy, we didn’t have to arrange our own transportation to and from the airport because the school offers a shuttle. The ride is drenched with desert landscape, traditional Moroccan architecture and views of the ocean.

Sol House Taghazout Bay

When I think of Morocco, I think of camels riding through the desert and vibrant marketplaces. But Sol House Taghazout Bay - Surf, located in a seaside village off the coast, showed me a wetter side. With some of the best surf spots in the world, I discovered that it’s the ideal destination for surf as well as sun.

The Property

With everything you need, it's a great retreat for solo travelers, couples, and families. There are rooms with single beds for students attending the surf camp as well as fresh and modern bungalows, some with up to 5 beds.

Sol Resorts are known for their stylish and fun-filled atmospheres, but this family-friendly, water-front resort focuses on the sea, sports, and ecotourism.

There’s a stunning flower-lined path that passes by a modern surf shop, a spa facility, and a fully-equipped gym. If you keep going, it'll lead you from the pool right down to the sandy beach. Sol House Taghazout Bay has private seating for guests just steps away from the ocean water.

The Surf Academy at Sol House

You’ll forget you’re in a desert while attending the surf academy at Sol House Taghazout Bay - Surf. Whether you’ve surfed your way around the world or you’ve never touched a board, you’ll feel confident catching a wave once you’ve had a class with their wonderful, qualified instructors.

Not to brag, but I got up on my board and rode a wave on my very first attempt.

We were the only novices in our afternoon class, so it felt like we had a private lesson on our first day. There were two instructors in our surf class, one who taught the beginners (the two of us!) and one who stayed with the more experienced students.

You can take a half-day surf lesson or for weeks. It’s up to you, but the swells are sweet any time of year.

If you need a good serving of food and drinks between all those surf sessions, Sol House Taghazout Bay has you covered with multiple food options. If you decide to take it easy and catch some sun, you’ll never feel parched with their poolside bar.

Although you may want to explore the neighboring towns, you won’t have to leave the grounds to find your next great meal with all the authentic Moroccan, tasty Mediterranean and international foods available at any of the 3 dining options at the resort.
