Taghazout is a charming fishing village just north of Agadir. You can go with a public bus from Agadir, which does not take long but the bus leaves the overpopulated city and fills-up even more, as if it were possible, on the way there. It is bus number 12 or bus 14 which is taken at the start from the collective taxi station near the Kamal Hotel. The trip costs half a euro, 5 Dh, and I think a bus leaves every half hour. Once there, you have a beautiful beach that is almost empty. Most people come to surf, but you can swim. If you want to longer you can also find a nice town and some hotels.
Taghazout Beach is 15 kilometres north of Agadir. You can get there by public bus from the centre of Agadir. It leaves every half hour and costs 5 Durhams. While the distance isn't far, it feels like you're entering another world. The beach is full of foreigners, the only people you see are the surfers enjoying the Atlantic waves. The village is nice, and instead of staying in Agadir, I recommend you try the beaches of Taghazout. There are several places for surfing and the common people can make recommendations depending on your level. The beach is patrolled during the summer, but the waves aren't really big. It's rather sheltered from the wind. I liked the beach for its calm. It's very natural, and even had goats eating the vegetation between the rocks. There are some souvenir vendors, but they generally leave you alone, not like in Agadir.
Taghazout is a village 15 kilometers north of Agadir. Agadir is the capital of Moroccan beach tourism. While Agadir doesn't have much charm, Taghazout is a town with soul, and although it's close to the major tourist city, it's managed to retain a certain amount of character. You can see it in the morning if you go to the village market. It's on the main square, next to the main road from Agadir to Essaouira. There's not much going on there since some things get placed on the ground, and in others people are selling digital stuff, a watch or a pair of second-hand shoes, and of course fish. With tourism as the main source of income for these people. If you buy a whole fish, you can then go back to your hotel and ask them to prepare it with bread and salad, sometimes even with fries. Here, people don't think about defrauding tourist. It's a more relaxed and authentic atmosphere.
Taghazout is a fishing village north of Agadir that has become famous among surfers. The waves are ideal, but it can be difficult to find a hotel as the tourist hordes descend! It's the perfect spot, though, to try your hand at surfing, whether you're experienced or a complete beginner, as there are waves to suit all tastes. I spent a week there and got a full week of 1m waves... I'd love to go back!
