Morocco for a surfer girl travelling alone...« on: October 19 2010 11:10:00 »
I'm a beginner-intermediate surfer, and I'm considering a 1 month surf trip in Morocco... in the Taghazout area.
How is this part of Morocco for a girl travelling by herself?
P.S. I'm a frequent traveller (South & Central America, Caribbean, Europe) but never been in a Moslem country yet (I know the basic do and don't of a girl travelling by herself!!!).

I'm considering the same as you, i'm also a beginner/intermediate surfer girl, and i'm looking at going to Morocco for a week in the end of nov/beginning of dec. Did you find any good alternatives? A surfcamp should be a good opition to at least start at.

I loved Morocco and not once did I feel unsafe. I stayed in Tagazout when I was there, just up the hill from Banana beach and had two fun waves to chose from in a short walking distance. My girlie and I rented a house when we were there (could see the break from our patio) and the town was a short walk away (cheap tagine a' plenty). Def wouldn't stress on going there alone. You meet tons of folks, the locals are super cool, and heaps of people there have cars (to bring you to dif breaks). A fun big/intermediate wave is Immezouan (no idea how to spell it lol). There's cheap places there you can stay at and restos too. Hope this helps.

Morocco is a great surf destination. It's one of the most progressive Muslim countries and very opened towards tourism. So, you won't feel insecure anywhere. Still, men tend to be a bit pushy and sometimes annoying when they see foreign women, specially alone. So, it's always good to travel with somebody else.
Everything is excellent when all goes well. But many things can go wrong in Morocco. Solving an injured or an overbooking situation in Morocco is very different from europe... My advice would be GO!GO!GO! but plan your trip before. You will have plenty adventure anyway... Believe me. I've been there last September. These guys arranged me everything: surfinn.travel You might wnat to check them.
Have a nice trip!!
