Things to see and do in the area

Although Taghazout is a great place to just chill and relax there is also plenty to see and do, also for those who haven’t found their sea legs yet:
Wonder around the little streets to discover all types of authentic and unique  restaurants, coffee bars, bakeries and shops. The food is mostly typically Moroccan and is all the better for it. You can also take a wander down to the beach and pick up some of the freshest fish caught that morning from the friendly Berber fishermen. They can be seen early every morning dragging their colourful boats across the sand and out to sea. There is also a small market held every Friday in the main square, where visitors can browse a good selection of artisan goods.
