Surf Spot Guide 1: Anchor Point

Surf Spot Guide 1: Anchor Point

The first in a series of local surf spot guides from us here at The Spot Morocco. First up – The world famous, holy grail of surfing in Morocco…Anchor Point.  This right hand point break provides long hollow rights. It works from 3ft up, but works best when a big swell comes through and in offshore winds from the northeast. Best to head there at low tide and when the tide starts pushing.

Type of wave

Bottom
Sandy/rock bottom
Access
Walking distance from Taghazout / less than 5 mins drive from where we are in Tamraght.
Level
Suitable for pro, advanced and the confident/experienced surfer.
Crowd
Mix of locals and tourists. It can get crowded when its big. Great place to sit and watch if you aren’t jumping in the water!
Hazards
Entry and exit is via a rocky outcrop jump off -be careful!
Photos
We were super excited to see  Anchors come back to life the other week as the first decent swell of the season hit! Check out some of the photo highlights of the session below:
