Thanks to its position between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region has suitable climactic conditions for nautical sports like surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing. A temperate climate and the great variety and expanses of beaches allow lovers of these sports to practise them all year round.
For beginners, there are several surfing schools and places to hire the necessary equipment. For experts, there is the swell from the waves that build up in the autumn and continue throughout the winter, as well as the trade winds in summer to delight kitesurfing and windsurfing fans.
The best-known beaches for these sports are Sidi Kacem (Tangier), Briech, Sidi Bouksibat and Reda (Asilah), Loukos (Larache) and Mdiq, and some miles to the south there is another surfing enclave at Moulay Bousselham.
