Morocco is a liberal Muslim country, and men and women are welcome to wear shorts and t-shirts. Swimsuits and bikinis are expected on the beach, but nudity is not (please be discreet when changing). It can get chilly at night, and trousers and jumpers are needed particularly in mid-winter, so make sure you bring some warm clothes too.
Towels for your bathroom are supplied, but not for the beach, so please bring your own beach towel. The following items may seem obvious but if you are thinking to get any of these items once you get here you may want to consider that the choice will be very limited and the price will be higher: swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, flipflops, Plug adaptors (Morocco is on 220 volts with European two-pin round plugs).
Some handy suggestions: beach bag, plastic bag (for transporting your wet wetsuit), something warm to wear at night, pen (for arrival/departure form at passport control).
If youre bringing your surfboard, take your fins off the board and dont forget the fins, fin screws, fin key, leash and some wax.

"We had a great holiday. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the food was delicious. Mehdi looked after us very well with great surf lessons and trips to the souk in Agadir, Paradise Valley, and hammam with gommage. The yoga was fantastic, with flowing, dynamic classes in the morning and relaxing, restorative classes after the surfing. It was beautifully thought out over the week, with plenty of variety and the well-equipped yoga shala was magical. Many thanks to Fi, who also does a great Thai massage!"
