First surfed in 1964 when a board reached the nearby US military base, this is the cradle of surfing in Morocco. The powerful Moone righthander breaking along the south jetty is the most reliable spot, sheltered from northerlies and able to handle size. There's also surf in Chlihat, past the north jetty, and even in the rivermouth when it's big enough to get Charatane's left going. The town beachbreaks are a good summer bet.
Sometimes crowded plus strong rips. Some rivermouth pollution after rains.
