Learn to surf waves in the lagoon of Oualidia

With beautiful weather for most of the year, a lagoon of 8 km and deserted beaches, OUALIDIA is one of the pearls of the Morocco. Famous for its oyster production and seafood, this site is a magical paradise for water sports especially surfing.

Surfland, the first Moroccan surf school, was founded in 1991 by Laurent Miramon, a native and accomplished man of the sea. He chose to settle in Oualidia because its bay and lagoon provide ideal conditions for learning to surf: waves are filtered through a natural pass, thereby reducing size and power before they break on the sand bars. This configuration thus allows a gentle introduction, scalable and secure, with guarantee of success and daily practice, regardless of the size of the swell. These exceptional conditions also allow learning from an early age.

Oualidia also enjoys a favorable climate and a convenient location, midway between Casablanca (170 km) and Marrakech (180 km).

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
