BEST OF TIPS
From our Morocco: Coasting The Atlantic eoisodes, here is where, how and why we did it.
Where to stay:
For our first accommodations in Morocco, we made a point of staying in a house. Since we knew the rest of our trip would be spent in hotels, we wanted to live like locals – food shopping in local markets, cooking our own food, and having full privacy. Airbnb helped us find the perfect apartment. Nicely decorated and clean, it was 15 minutes from both Agadir and the busier village of Taghazout. The apartment was also right on the beach of a village called Aourir, known to locals as Banana Village for its main agricultural product, bananas. Along the way, we encountered numerous restaurants, markets, shops, and a bank for needed cash. Our recommendations? Get the Wi-Fi code from your host as soon as you arrive, and find out beforehand what will and will not be provided at your apartment so you know what extra supplies to bring.
A guide to skating and surfing in Morocco:
As you saw in this week’s episode, Ali Tamara welcomed us to our beach apartment and quickly became our friend while we stayed there. He is a fantastic guide, with tons of surfing and skateboarding knowledge, as well as places to visit not only in Agadir but all around Morocco. He also runs the skate shop you saw in the episode!

Drivers in Morocco:
While it is possible to take public transportation in Morocco, doing so will take up a big portion of your time. For a reasonable fee, we recommend renting a car or getting a drive. Amine, contact info below, was a wonderful driver and enhanced our experience in Morocco in boundless ways!
