Imsouane (The Bay) Spot Guide

About Imsouane (The Bay)

A consistent, long, user-friendly (mellow, actually) right-hand point, "The Bay" at Imsouane is the prototypical beginner/surf school spot in Morocco. That being said, it is also a blast on a log or fish, even for experienced surfers (just try to get there before the surf schools). Arguably the longest wave in Morocco. There are also left and right reefs, beachbreaks, and points around the corner, on the "Cathedral" side.
