IS IT SAFE TO DRINK ALCOHOL?
Morocco is a Muslim country and Tamraght, where Desert Surf Morocco is located, is a dry village, which means you won't be able to buy alcohol or find 'bars'. In the city of Agadir you can buy alcohol in some supermarkets and a number of restaurants and bars that serve alcohol.

You can consume alcohol in our camp while enjoying some sunbathing on the rooftop terrace after surfing.

What to take with you

WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE WITH ME?
Here are some of the must-haves we suggest you bring: sunscreen (waterproof), sunglasses, hat/cap, beach towel, flip-flops.
DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN TOWELS?
We provide you with shower towels, but you will need to bring your own beach towel or take a towel for rent 1 EUR per day
WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Morocco is a liberal Muslim country, in the area we are in it is not uncommon for men and women to dress in shorts and T-shirts. On the beach you will see men in bathing shorts and women in bikinis, but there is no nudity here. Bring plenty of beachwear and we suggest you also bring a pair of jumpers and jeans for the evening, as the temperature drops a bit at this time, especially in winter.
