Water Sports Morocco

Winter Surfing in Morocco

Have you ever wanted to try water sports? Maybe you are a regular windsurfer or kitesurfer and you are looking for a permanent solution. However, with the cold weather gripping the UK, it could become increasingly difficult to hit the water.

This is why windsurfing, surfing, and kitesurfing in Morocco have become so popular, especially during the winter months. With the promise of temperatures averaging 21 degrees Celsius during the winter months, Morocco has a warm and welcoming climate.

Plus, thanks to resorts like Essaouira in the north, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the waves with a bit of water sports entertainment.

A paradise for kite surfers

Kitesurfing in Morocco is particularly popular around the handful of beaches along the coast in and around Essaouira. The conditions are ideal for both beginners and more experienced kite surfers. This is reflected in the variety of conditions experienced on these beaches.

The more experienced should head to La Grotte (The Cave), as the waves produced here are higher and stronger. For a more complete kitesurfing experience in Morocco, where you are likely to encounter water sports enthusiasts of all disciplines and levels, head to Sidi Kaouki or the main beach in Essaouira.

Do you need a wetsuit to surf in Morocco?

Thanks to a growing community of water sports enthusiasts enjoying a winter holiday in Morocco, there is a lively scene in which any budding kitesurfer, surfer, or windsurfer will thrive. The cafes are often busy with people chatting about their experiences on the waves, and newcomers to the water sports scene will find plenty of places offering lessons and equipment.

This is the main attraction that helps shape Essaouira and Morocco as a top kitesurfing destination no matter the time of year. So, if you like to put on your wetsuit, soak up the sun and glide over the waves, kitesurfing in Essaouira is the place to be this winter.
