Frequently Asked Questions

There seem to be more options to fly to Marrakech Airport.  How far away is it from Agadir?

Marrakech is 260km from Agadir, approximately 3.5hrs by taxi or bus. There are two air conditioned bus services that run between the two cities, and a single journey costs €12 per person. The bus station is just a 5 minute taxi ride from Marrakech airport, and we will collect you from Agadir bus station when you arrive.

Is it safe to travel to Morocco as a female solo traveller?

As with any country, as a solo traveller you need to be aware of your surroundings, but Morocco and especially small villages like Tamraght are very friendly.  Around 600,000 British nationals visit Morocco every year and most visits are completely trouble-free.

What facilities are in the village?

Tamraght is a quiet fishing and surf village situated on the hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  We have several restaurants, cafes and bakeries, 3 surf shops and plenty of convenience stores.  The nearest ATM is a 15 minute walk to Banana Village, or 5 minutes by car.

What shall I expect to wear around the village? At the beach?

To respect the locals, please dress modestly whilst in the village and avoid revealing clothing.

Whilst at the beach, bikinis and shorts are fine, but nudity isn’t..!

What shall I bring with me?

Bring SPF 50+ waterproof suncream, swim wear, sun glasses, beach towel, cap, shorts and tshirts and something longer for the evening when it’s a little cooler.

How much spending money will I need?

You won’t need much spending money, but bring some for the meal out, and for any souvenirs you’d like to buy.

What will the water temperature be?

 

What qualifications do my surf coaches have?

Our head coach Mbarek is qualified to International Surf Association (ISA) level 2, and has been teaching with this qualification for over 10 years.  The rest of our team have at least ISA level 1 qualifications, a huge wealth of surfing experience and a love like no other for the ocean!

Can I join yoga classes whilst I am here?

Yes! Yoga classes can be added at anytime whilst you are staying with us to stretch you and each class will cost €10.

Can I explore the local area?

Yes, you are very welcome to. You can wander around Tamraght or take a short hike to Aourir aka Banana Village. On Wednesday, there is a local Souk in Aourir, that is always worth a visit. You’ll find nice souvenirs, but also a large range of local fruit, vegetables, of traditional argan oil products and tasty amlou. This is the market, where mainly locals shop, so visiting it is a truly Moroccan experience. In Agadir there is a bigger Souk where you can find pretty much everything you can think of. Also worth a visit, but a little more touristy than the one in Aourir.

How big are the group sizes for surf lessons?

We try to keep them small, so it-s 4-6 people at most in one group of the same surf level.

What sort of surfboard will I use?

We have a whole range of boards from 9ft foamies to short boards that you can choose from according to your level.

Can I drink the tap water in Morocco?

No, the tap water in Morocco is fine for brushing teeth but  not for drinking. We provide you with water refills throughout the day (please bring a reusable water bottle!). This way we don’t have to throw bottles away each day, you’ll be helping us to minimise our plastic consumption.

Is there an ATM nearby?

There are local cash machines in Banana Village just 5 minutes by car if you need to withdraw money here, and a currency exchange in Tamraght.
