Surf Like a Pro in Morocco
Well wriggle into that wetsuit ladies, because you can now book in for the seven-day surfing course with Roxy Surf Girls Week (surfmaroc.com). In the small beach town of Taghazout, in the south west of Morocco, you can practice your carving and, because it’s a girls-only course, you don’t need to worry about hot guys seeing you eat sand. In the evenings, chill-out at L’Auberge (book through surf-taghazout.com), one of Taghazout’s oldest and best known surfer hotels.
NB: glamouristas may find L’Auberge a little basic, but what it lacks in modern amenities, it makes up for in charm – think late night jamming sessions on the beach, sunset barbeques and enough personality to bring down Russell Brand.
Make it happen: Log onto surfmaroc.com to book the Roxy Surf Girls Week. Prices start at Dhs2,755, which includes full board, beachside accommodation, daily surf lessons and hire of equipment. To get yourself there, fly to Marrakech with Emirates (emirates.com) for around Dhs3,500 return. From there, take a domestic flight with Royal Air Maroc (royalairmaroc.com) to Agadir – the closest airport to Taghazout – for approximately Dhs800 return.
