Taghazout, located in the Souss-Massa region of Morocco, was once a small fishing village but has transformed into a popular surfing and beach destination since the 1990s. Nestled on the Atlantic coast and 20km north of Agadir, Taghazout is now the central town in a commune comprising several villages in the hinterland, home to approximately 10,000 residents. Economic life, based on fishing and agriculture initially, now revolves around tourism, especially water sports. Despite having no particular attractions besides its beaches and old town, Taghazout serves as an ideal base for day tours into its rugged, mountainous hinterland. The town has undergone significant modernization, attracting people from different regions of Morocco, but still retains its Berber roots. Its charm derives from its blend of cultures, favorable climate, and surf-friendly beaches, making it not just a spot on the map but a lifestyle for many.
