Coming from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, the seashore straddles Morocco’s impressive coastline throughout the year. September – March, the northern swells fill the southern coastal strip and make dozens long right points. The season reaches its peak in the months of December – January, where you can challenge yourself every day.
The southern coastal strip of Morocco spreads for more than 600 km, ranging from the Azores region to the southern border with the Western Sahara. The coastal strip is characterized by countless waves of all kinds and are suitable for all levels. From long right points, to reef and sand breaks, you can always surf your favorite wave. Since there are so many options, a short drive from the more touristy surf towns will lead you to high quality, empty waves. In addition, the local population is enlightening and warm. The general atmosphere in and out the water is calm and pleasant.
The desert weather in Morocco, is inviting and calm throughout the year, during the day it’s warm and pleasant, and at nights it’s cool. Today, Morocco’s reputation as an attractive destination for surfers of the world is growing thanks to its excellent surfing conditions, countless surf spots and the enchanted and special atmosphere created by combining desert and magical weather, the local population, smells and extraordinary sights.
Morocco, known as the “Western Kingdom” spreads over 2,300 km in length and about 300 km laterally. The kingdom has a huge coastline, exposed to all the Atlantic movements. It has desert climate, temperatures range from 28 degrees during the day and 7 degrees on the coldest nights. The average water temperature ranges from 17-23 degrees, so a 3/3-mm-thick suit will serve you well. Most of the Moroccan population is Muslim-Sunni, and their attitude toward Israelis and Jews is warm and sympathetic, since throughout history a strong and prosperous Jewish community has been an integral part of Morocco. Today, around 2,500 Jews live in Morocco, most of whom live in Casablanca, the trade and industrial center. The local currency is Dirham (MAD), but most places also accept payment in euros. Israeli citizens are required to issue a visa before leaving the country. We issue residence permits for our travelers, with the process taking about 7 business days, and the approved length of stay for Israeli travelers is between 14 – 21 days (there is an option to lengthen the visa at the various immigration offices).
