Anchor Point is one of the best and most popular surf spots in Morocco, especially among the locals. Many refer to it as “the best wave in Morocco”. You can find Anchor Point about 1 km north of Taghazout, the mecca of surfing.
At low tide Anchor Point works especially well, with long walls and barrel sections! In Taghazout you can find everything you need before, during and after your surf: surf shops, cafes, bars, discos and even a supermarket! ;)
Anchor Point is one of the classical right-hand point breaks that turns on in a large North West Swell. Caution: the spot is not suitable for every level of surfer because it requires quite a bit of skill. However, beginners can find many other easy beach breaks close by.
Wave type: Right pointbreak
Seabed: Sand and rock reef
Level: Intermediate, professionals
