A beautiful beach for surf activities, water sports etc. Also great for some beach sports or just a stroll about as well. Strong waves and a great place for a sunset view.

I liked the beach as it's not as crowded as Agadir. You walk around easily without getting harassed by people trying to sell you something. Easy parking and a never ending beach made me enjoy the stay. However be prepared that it's VERY windy and it's not a place for sunbathing. Take a quad tour or walk around the beach... More

Lovely long stretch of clean sandy beach. Early morning lovely long walks. You find camel and horse rides available as well as surfing, wind surfing etc but these don't crowd the long wide beach. Beach is just outside of the medina but there are hotels on the beach front. The promenade is being developed and offers nice places for strolling... More

Our hotel had a private section of the beach, it is good sandy beach and we'll used. When the tide goes out it becomes a good place for the locals to play football. It is very clean and huge, camel rides available at one end and it seems very safe for younger children.

great beach! large bay, protected by the port and islands, good for kids to play but also gets some surf at the far end, double winner. also nice for a long walk to the ruins of an venician fort at the extreme far end of the bay.

Ideal for long walks during the day... if you don´t mind the cold water you can take a surfing class as well. be kind with the horse / camel owners - a polite no will be enough if you don´t want to take part rides on the animals... there are some nice beach clubs, we enjoyed "ocean vagabond" during the...

Dont get me wrong with the title. Beach is ok. There is sand, therea re camel guys, people riding horses, wind, kitesurfers. If I compare other beaches I saw around the world or in Africa, its just a beach. I enjoyed the walk along the beach, was quite windy during my visit in January and also chilly. As a solo... More

Wonderful clean sand and lively surf. You can walk for miles, just a few camel-ride sellers to avoid, (unless you want to ride a camel!)

It is not the best beach in the world but it has a lovely promenade, which is a pleasure to walk down. I found the beach has it's own charm. It also has some dogs, if that is of concern to you. You see the lads playing football on the beach and the local women sitting on the wall of... More
