dream surf destination

amazing surf spots

Imsouane is a dream destination for surfing. Its orientation offers different types of waves, working with all swell directions. But it is first and foremost its bay, sheltering the longest wave of Morocco, that made Imsouane famous.


There is a surf spot for every level in Imsouane. Its topography offer 4 distinct surf spots:


- The amazing bay with an endless right-hander wave. Starting at the harbor’s jetty, it can break on 500 meters on its best days.

- The cathedral’s right-hander wave, that can get powerful with big swells, is ideal for thrill seekers.

- The right and left of the Oued: beachbreak that sometimes connects with the end of the Cathedral wave.

- The reef left-hander wave: shallow and technical on big swells, it stays ideal when the waves are small to train in more shallow conditions.


The ocean floor is mostly made of sand, only the reef wave breaks on rocks. The reef and cathedral spots offer more technical waves, attracting intermediate surfers and higher.

Famous worldwide, Imsouane’s bay needs no introduction. It wave is ideal for everyone, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or an expert. With its different sections, the wave can break on 800 meters, from the harbor’s jetty until the beach further down, when the right tide and swell meet. With its sandy bottom, the bay is the best place in Morocco to learn and improve your surfing skills.


Even with big swells, the bay offers a quiet and easy wave for everybody. Protected by the harbor’s jetty from big waves, the spot benefits of a special environment, creating small and smooth waves you will enjoy all day long.

The Reef is a left-hander wave breaking just in front of the central place of Imsouane. It breaks on a rocky hollow bottom. With small swells, this wave is accessible to all surfers, from beginners to advanced.

When the swell is bigger, it becomes hollow and powerful and withstand waves up to 2.5 meters.

This wave can get really fun with a medium swell (1 to 2m), where advanced surfers perform radical manœuvres in the shallow sections. 

The cathedral is an amazing right-hander wave that can withstand swells up to 3 meters. More technical than the bay, this is full of power. It is however accessible to all levels when the waves are small and offers long rides to practice your manoeuvres.


With bigger waves, the cathedral reveals its potential, and only intermediate to advanced surfers can take on its power. 

The 'Oued' spot (Oued means river in Moroccan) is a right and left beach-break, which breaks on a sandy bottom, in front of the river mouth of Imsouane.

Facing very nice colorful fisherman houses, this 'A-frame' wave is a fun and easy wave for all levels. Protected by the cliff of the Cathedral it offers good surfing conditions and can be 'the place to be' on windy days.

On small swells, this easy-to-surf spot is the right place to practice for beginners and the best playground to catch your first green waves.
