Imsouane is a small fishing village located approximately 1.5 hours drive north of Agadir. It is home to one of the longest right-handers in the world, offering rides over two minutes long! During low tide, the long, mellow rights wrap around the port into the well-protected south-facing bay. This highly consistent spot is a surfer’s paradise, great for beginners, intermediates, and a dream for all longboarders! With bigger swells it can get world-class, offering huge long walls and even barrel sections.
When the swell drops or if you are looking for waves around high tide check the Cathedral on the other side of the bay. The Cathedral is a point break with a beach that also offers several well-defined peaks.
Imsouane is a quiet fishing village that is becoming more and more popular with surfers. It is well known for its fish which you must try while you are here. In the evenings you can hang out in the Auberge Tasra and listen to Gnawa music, a nice end to a long day surfing.
