International flights to Morocco have resumed since June 15, 2021. Travelers have access to Moroccan territory, under certain conditions, if they have a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test at least 48 hours before the date of entry into Morocco. To implement this procedure, a classification of countries into two lists (A and B) has been adopted following the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.
Travellers from countries on List A, whether they are Moroccan nationals, foreigners resident in Morocco, or citizens of these countries, can enter Moroccan territory once they are in possession of a vaccination certificate and/or have a negative / ‘not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours from the date of entry into Morocco.
Holders of foreign vaccination certificates will benefit from the same advantages granted by the Moroccan vaccination certificate to Moroccan citizens on the national territory.
List A currently includes Ireland and countries that are not mentioned in List B (see below).
Travellers from these countries must obtain an exceptional authorization from the Moroccan authorities before travelling; present a negative / ‘not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours from the date of entry into Morocco and quarantine for 10 days.
Please check the official website of the Moroccan National Tourism Office (MNTO) for more details.
EU passport holders do not require a visa to enter Morocco for tourist purposes. Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay. If you hold a passport from outside the European Union we strongly recommend that you check with your nearest Moroccan Embassy.
Currently we are able to accept cash
Summer clothes for the days, warmer clothes for the evenings especially during the winter months, beach towel, a swim suit or board-shorts, sunscreen, a pen (for the form at the passport control on arrival/departure), sunglasses, flip flops, a beach bag. If you come with your hardware, remember to bring drifts, screws and the leash.
Morocco is an Islamic country, but very moderate when it comes down to dress code. You can wear shorts and t-shirts. The swimsuits and bikinis can be worn on the beach, but nudity is not recommended (please be discrete when you go out). For women, it is advisable not to wear too provocative clothing. It is also advisable to be accompanied by a man.
As it can get quite cold at nights – especially during the winter months – make sure to bring warm clothing too.
This is no problem, so if you can’t come out for a full week, rather than putting you on a shorter package, we’ll actually build you up your own bespoke package. This means you can choose exactly what you fancy doing in your time with us. It may be that you have a late flight on your last day and you can squeeze in a full day surfing with us etc.
Yes, of course, just drop us a message! If you are able to spend more than a week with us, that would be fab. It creates a really nice atmosphere having people who have been out for a while mixing with new guests and we really want people to stay as long as they can with us. So yes, please do, just drop us a message and we’ll see what we can do on our rates for you.
If you haven’t pre-booked one of our surf packages, and are staying in B&B, but you’d like to go surfing please let your host know by 1 pm the day before. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Please note that during high season, we can’t guarantee there will be space in any of our vans.
No, but you can if you want. Prices shown on our site are “pp” – per person sharing a twin room (same gender) or a double with your partner. This means if you’re on your own you share the cost of the room and make a new friend. You can of course book the room to yourself as a private for an additional single room supplement if you prefer.
You can arrive at any time and any day of the week, but it will not always be possible to have your room ready before 2 p.m. If you wish to arrive earlier and your room is not available yet, we will take care of your luggage so that you can start your holiday peacefully. Departure time is officially 12a.m. but obviously also depending on your flight departure. Don’t hesitate to ask for a late check-out.
Yes, of course! We offer surf lessons and accommodation for all age ranges. We’d love to host your family here at Takeoff Surf Morocco, however children remain in the responsibility of the parent.
Morocco is a Muslim country, and Tamraght where Takeoff Surf Morocco is based, is a dry village which means you won’t be able to buy any booze or find “bars”. In the city of Agadir, you can buy alcohol in selected supermarkets and there is a range of restaurants and bars which serve alcohol. You are welcome to consume your alcohol at our camp, enjoy a post surf, roof terrace sun-downer.
No vaccinations* are required for visitors to Morocco and you will unlikely come across a mosquito, so anti-malarial precautions are not necessary. We have first aid kits in our vehicles. In case of an emergency, there are hospitals and clinics in Agadir. Charges will apply according to the treatment received so make sure you have travel insurance before you arrive, and bring the contact number with you in case you do have an emergency. Pharmacies in Morocco are plentiful and carry pretty much anything you might need, with lots of medications available without a doctor’s prescription. Surfing is at your own risk!

The food available at restaurants is a mixture of Moroccan and international dishes. You can get some great couscous and tagines, but pizzas and hamburgers are served at most restaurants as well. Guiding and lessons packages include a buffet breakfast and a packed lunch with sandwiches, water, biscuits and fruit. Tap water at our villa (not necessarily everywhere else though) is potable and technically safe for drinking, and certainly fine for cooking and brushing teeth, but we do not recommend that you drink large quantities. Bottled mineral water is cheap (5 dirhams) and available everywhere. Sometimes visitors suffer stomach upsets, but this often passes quickly (usually within 24 hours), so give yourself a break, drink plenty of water, and stay near a bathroom, if you can.
