    "I was looking for a surfing holiday for my partner’s birthday and was overwhelmed by how many there were to choose from. After hours of searching I stumbled across Magic Surf Morocco. I decided to go with Magic Surf as the reviews were exceptional. Despite this, I wasn't sure what to expect but the holiday quickly exceeded my expectations in all areas. The riad which we stayed in was lovely very clean and the staff extremely friendly, nothing was too much trouble! The food was fantastic, I would even go as far as saying we ate some of the best food we have ever eaten on holiday, and eating them family style on the terrace by the swimming pool just topped it off! Even though our days were pretty structured we still had plenty of time to chill and relax after a full day of surfing and we were given the freedom to do our own thing if we wished too-on the last night my partner and I decided to get a taxi into Agadir and Sabine arranged this for us. I was bowled over by the beauty of the Moroccan coast line and how friendly the local people were. The surf instruction was incredible and a particular highlight for me was a private yoga session on the terrace with Sara. All in all a once in a lifetime experience for us and I would highly recommend Magic Surf Morocco to anyone as it was the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation. "

    "My second trip (it's so good I went back and took friends) to Magic Surf surprised me by being even better than the first. I'd had such an amazing time I didn't think that was possible! The riad is incredibly beautiful, with spacious rooms, roof terraces offering both shaded seating and somewhere to lounge in the sun, palms and bougainvillea everywhere, and the most friendly, welcoming people (Hi, Mohammed!) you could wish to spend time with. There's even a wonderful mosaic plunge pool in the courtyard to refresh yourself after a long day in the sun and surf."

    "And oh, the surf...Surfing is special wherever you do it, but the surfing here is SPECIAL special. Fadl and Rachid were the most fun, patient, encouraging and skilled instructors, making every day better than the last. The water is clear and warm, and the locals are friendly, tolerant and understanding of beginner surfers. Every day we came out of the water to a fabulous lunch on the beach, then after a snooze and a bit more surfing, went home to the riad to shower off and enjoy our yoga sessions with the lovely Sarah, who tailored each practice to how we were feeling. No matter how achey or tired we felt, by the end of each session we felt more grounded, relaxed and refreshed, and ready for a delicious dinner served in the courtyard."

    "The tagines ROCK by the way. All of these aspects of the trip were tied together by the wonderful Sabine, who makes staying at Magic Surf feel like staying with one of those really cool friends who just wants you to have the best time. From picking us up at the airport, to a trip to have drinks and watch the sun go down over the sea, to an emergency beach hat purchase, to arranging a massage and a driver (Hi Omar!) for an afternoon going to the souks and airport on our last day, nothing was too much trouble for Sabine. She is a marvellous host and a fantastic person I feel privileged to have spent time with. There were tears on the plane, and we've already started planning our next trip."

  • Review by Jessica Grace from London, United Kingdom

    "Spent a truly amazing week with Magic Surf Morocco recently with two friends, and whilst I knew we would have a great time, our trip far surpassed my expectations - we all agreed it was the best holiday ever! I fell completely in love with Morocco - the people, the sunshine, the beach life, and of course, surfing! Getting on the plane home was incredibly difficult, I just didn't want to leave this beautiful place. So having suffered from the worst case of post-holiday-blues, we have already started looking at flights and dates to come back later in the year! I loved that the Riad isn't just another bland hotel with it's traditional Moroccan design and decoration, it's just lovely! The room was big, clean, comfortable and suited us perfectly. The food provided was delicious - the tagines in particular were incredible and breakfast was full of choice and much needed for a days surfing - big thank you to Mohammed to made sure I got my morning cup of tea! All the staff were wonderful, very accommodating and friendly. Both of my friends had surfed before, but I was basically a complete beginner, having surfed only once before, for a week in the UK, 10 years ago. Fadl and Rachid were great instructors - thank you so much guys for your patience with me! They were really encouraging, super friendly and fun, and just generally great to spend our days with. I was really happy with how well I progressed through the week, despite my concerns having had surgery on my foot about 6 months ago - Fadl and Rachid told me in the morning of day two that I had to stand up that day, and I did! :) Sabine, the manager, is just wonderful - she's so friendly and welcoming, you feel like a friend, not a just a guest, and nothing is too much trouble. After picking us up from the airport, she spent evenings with us, having dinner with us at the Riad and taking us for sunset drinks and dinners out, and having us over for a BBQ - we had a great time getting to know her. And to top everything off, we had the very lovely Sarah as our teacher for the post-surf yoga. Sarah tailored our practice to our energy level after a day in the water, and focused on easing any discomfort we were experiencing, whilst relaxing us completely. I loved that it wasn't super serious - we were all beginners and had all spent the day in the sea, so it was nice to have a little laugh together when we couldn't do something! So, if you didn't already guess, I would absolutely recommend Magic Surf Morocco - you won't be disappointed!"

    "If you're in Agadir or Taghazout then surfing should be on your agenda! And Magic Surf is the company! We did two lessons with Rashid, it was awesome he was clear and instructed well and we had an amazing time. Sabine looked after us really well, took us to the golf course to watch the sunset and a cheeky gin and tonic, went for amazing burgers in Taghazout and had a great time. I can't recommend Magic Surf enough the team is great!"

    "I traveled solo for a surf and yoga camp from the UK. All the staff where great, very personal service that made the trip very fun. I made some great friends and lovely memories. The food was fantastic, the rooms where spacious and very clean. The hotel staff where more than happy to help with anything and overall everyone was incredibly nice and happy. The surf and yoga lessons where very fun, and all the staff and teachers where encouraging my attempts. Highlights include roof terrace bbq, dinner opposite the beach, and riding a camel down the beach. Have recommended to all friends and family."

  • Review by a traveler from Cologne, Germany

    "Although I had some bad luck regarding the weather (two days rainy and windy), my one-week vacation at Magicsurf Morocco was a great experience. It was well organized: shuttle service from the airport, delicious food three times a day, trips to the beach with surfing lessons, cliff jumping and a spontaneous planned alternative program for the few rainy days (e.g. trip to the souk). In addition Sabine offered the possibility to book local offers like a treatment at the hammam and massage (everyone should try that) or camel riding. "

    "The group soon feels very familiar as you spend your time together at the beach and share dinner. I was traveling on my own and really enjoyed being part of the group. My favorite ting to do were the yoga sessions: Sarah is such a lovely yoga teacher and made it easy to find inner peace and relaxation after a day at the beach. "

    "The beach house is a place where you spend time with the group or in your own in the shared areas around the pool, the sleeping rooms are just for sleeping and showering that for hanging out. But that's absolutely okay because the sun terrace and the pool - and lobby area make it easy to relax and get into conversations with other guests or group members. The food was delicious! Tajines, breakfast buffet, group dinner with a lot of variation and Sabine's sandwiches for lunch."

    "I can highly recommend vacations at MagicSurf Morocco. As a little advice: plan to take enough extra money if you want to do some extra actions like the hammam, Paradise Valley etc. or if you want to have a snack between lunch and the dinner."

  • Review by Jake Pearce from Europe

    "First up Morocco is safe, I have to be honest everyone was worried about my coming here, it was unfounded in my experience. I've surfed in Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, California, France...Tamraght is the most flexible surfing I've had - it offers a massive choice of breaks in a compact area - the huge advantage of that is the choice it gives you. Wanna chill? Stay at your level. Wanna push it. Sabine's guides - Redouaine and Janux - are professional, truly professional, they focus on precision and they find the right break for you that day. Accommodation is authentic Morroccan at the riad, with warm funny people, the only hotel with a pool, amazing Tajine (authetic Morroccan food), big beds, breezy rooms. Tamraght offers an easy, get away for surfers of all levels - it's within striking distance of Marrakesh and I'm off to stay in the desert. I came for three weeks and stayed for seven!"

    "Initially, I was planning to stay at Magic surf for one week, somehow I stayed there for two weeks, and if it wasn't for work, I would have stayed even longer, this is how I fell in love with this place. Magic surf's team consists of Sabine, Radwan, and Tori.Sabine has successfully created a very friendly, social environment at the camp, which is important, especially if you are travelling solo as I did. If you think that the packed lunches by the beach are just simple sandwiches, let me tell you that you are wrong. Sabine puts a lot of time and effort into the beach lunches, they are always tasty and well prepared, I still dream about the potato salad she did one day, yum.Radwan, aka Rad is by far the best surfing instructor, I've ever had, I am sure this guy can make a child start surfing before even walking. That was not my first time surfing, but the last time I surfed was a year ago, so I was still a beginner, but after two weeks I believe I became more of an intermediate surfer thanks to Radwan. Besides, he is a very cool guy to hang out with, and he is funny and full of life, just being around him made me happy.Last but not least we have Tori, the yoga instructor. I had my first yoga class ever with her, and it was a great experience, I highly recommend doing yoga with her your entire stay there.Sabine and Radwan, have big personalities, Tori, on the other hand, Tori balances things out, after all, she is the yogi, and that reflects in her personality and lifestyle.Overall, I had a great stay with magic surf and the team, and will come back again for sure."

    "The week I spent with Magic Surf & Yoga Morocco will be deeply ingrained in my memory - for all the right reasons!"

    "It was a spontaneous, last-minute booking and fortunately for me - with so many options of surf/yoga retreats to choose from - I decided to try Magic Surf for my first (definitely not the last!) Moroccan adventure.Right from the start I knew I was in good hands with Sabine's prompt and friendly replies to all e-mails. Regarding traveling on my own, my mind was put at ease thanks to her efficient and positive communications. This absolute dedication Sabine has to ensuring everyone is happy and taken care of was evident throughout my stay. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and she puts 110% effort into making everyday with Magic Surf Morocco special.The beautiful Riad Imourane (guest house) is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day's activities, with hearty traditional dinners and lovely, kind staff (especially Mohammed!). Meals are served in the tranquil courtyard around the pool, including the buffet breakfast that consists of a good selection - be sure not to miss out on the delicious almond cake..."

    "The main reason for my trip was to go surfing and I was definitely not disappointed. Every morning the van was loaded up with our boards etc. and we would head off to the best break depending conditions and skill levels, music blasting, having great fun getting psyched up for the waves awaiting us. Simo was our surf guide/instructor and by far the best! You could not find a guy more passionate and knowledgeable about surfing and the ocean. Typical to the Magic Surf ethos he went the extra mile - literally! - on one occasion paddling far out to a fishing boat, returning with a bag full of fresh sardines which he then grilled for us on the BBQ on the beach, yum!"

    "If I thought this Moroccan holiday could not get any better I was mistaken as in addition to surfing I was also lucky to attend yoga classes taught by the wonderful - and patient! - Tori. We enjoyed early morning sessions which was the most perfect way to begin the day, warming up, and energizing body and mind. Tori was excellent at adapting the classes to my state of being each session, knowing just which poses to practice. This was especially appreciated during the afternoon classes when I did not think I could even lift my arms due to the day's surfing. The slow and gentle stretches was like soothing balm for tired and aching muscles, bringing relief and making it possible to go all out again the following day."

    "It was certainly an unforgettable week, my only regret being that I did not stay for longer! The Magic Surf Morocco team is one of a kind and I can not wait to return for more great times and laughs to share Thank you Sabine!"

    "After the amazing meal that we were served even though we were late arrivals, and the from the very first morning yoga session, I knew I was going to love this place! Hard work and at times frustrating (for me!), but by the end of the week I was up... there are photos to prove it!! Sabine is a fantastic host with a big personality, combined with Tori for yoga and Jalal for surfing, the team works effortlessly. Loved it, will be back :-)"

  • Review by Kirsty from Glasgow, UK

    "We spent a magical week with Magic Surf at the beginning of November and it was such a treat to escape into Winter Sun and meet Sabine and Tory! We went for a week and joined another couple and a girl travelling on her own, and, after our tight fit into Omar's taxi from airport to Riad, we became friends and Surf Buddies! Surfing for a week was great fun and, as a complete novice, I can promise you, you will learn to surf in a week with Sabine and her friends. And that's exactly how I felt on this holiday; I felt like I was staying with friends. Sabine, Tory, Jalel, and Yuself as we all surfed and ate together throughout the day and into the night. Our evening Yoga sessions with Tory were fantastic to relieve our aching muscles from the strains of surfing. Tory is a very knowledge and strong woman and will encourage you to enhance your posture and relax into poses. Yoga on the beach as the sunsets is truly a beautiful experience.Sabine was so accommodating, organizing massages for us and any day trips that tickled our fancy. We're already chatting about our next trip! On top of all that... after being told I wasn't allowed to fly and taken into hospital overnight, Sabine was an incredible support (my French didn't extend to medical terms) and took me under her wing and back to the Riad until I had the okay to fly again... Sabine, I honestly can't thank you enough for the kindness and warmth you gave us. You are incredible women Sabine and Tory, and deserve all the success in the world. Biz!"

  • Review by Thomas

    "I feel the pull of the ocean pulling me back, back to Magic Surf Morocco even though I've only just been there. I arrived there completely without any surf experience and got to the stage where I could consistently pick a wave and get up on a board thanks to the expert tutelage of champion surfer Jalal. It's a lot of work but well worth the effort once you master it. Physically I'm not sure how I would have coped if not for yoga with Tori. She is an excellent teacher taking us through a wide range of yoga styles depending on what we felt we needed; power, restorative, relaxation and more. As the week drew on we seemed to need more and more restorative yoga and it was just the tonic. We did yoga twice a day, sometimes on the terrace into sunrise, once on the beach at sunset- fantastic. Our amazing hostess Sabine organised everything and took care of us the whole time making sure we got the best of everything the area has to offer. The barbecue on the beach was spectacular. Everyone should do yoga, everyone should surf, let's face it- everyone should go to Magic Surf."

    "I booked a week with Magic Surf Morocco for the beginning of August, as a solo traveller I was slightly nervous as it was my first trip alone. Sabine was amazing and put my mind at rest, keeping in constant contact right from booking up until the trip and even after I had got back home. She was so friendly and quick to respond to all messages it really made me feel at ease.Once there Zak was awesome, he has a very evident passion for surfing and is so patient and helpful. Veronica was a wonderful yoga instructor and has awakened a love for yoga within me.Magic surf really made me feel like one of the family and it was so wonderful spending the day out surfing and then the evenings eating together and hanging out. I met some absolutely amazing people which I am truly greatful for and would recommend Magic Surf Morocco to anyone!"
