Morocco has the most extensive river system in North Africa and over 3,500 km of coastline on two very different seas: the Atlantic ocean on a long seafront to the west, the Mediterranean on a wide strip to the north, and everywhere, perfect air and wind conditions. It's no wonder that Morocco offers excellent water sports, such as sailing, yachting, windsurfing, surfing, kitesurfing, jet skiing, swimming, white water river rafting, kayaking and diving.
Surf or windsurf? Take to the sandy beaches of Oualidia, Agadir region and Essaouira, a town which hosts many international competitions. The breakers of the Atlantic ocean attract surfers from all over the world. Major international competitions are held here, so whether a novice or a well-seasoned surfer, you will find what you are looking for in Morocco. You prefer kitesurfing? Then as well as Essaouira, head south to the protected bay of Dakhla. Jet ski is also a very popular sport locally and is practised in several spots, especially since the young Brice Aracil won the world championship title there in 1998. And the diversity of wind and wave conditions will satisfied beginners and the most experienced.
Naturally, Morocco has become a choice destination for all fans of watersports. The trade winds blow on the Moroccan coast from late March to mid-September. And the mild temperature makes it possible to practise them throughout the year. Add to that a very diverse coastline, water that rarely goes below 18°C in the winter, with an unspoilt and wild nature, and you obtain an explosive cocktail for all surf lovers looking for new sensations.
