boutique Surf and Yoga retreat

…with SUP thrown in for good measure. We specialize in smaller groups to ensure we maintain a high level of customer service and a relaxed, easy vibe. Our philosophy is simple – this should be your home away from home and a chance to de-stress and rejuvenate. At Surf and Soul Morocco we pride ourselves on great value, a warm welcome and a stunning natural location.

More a lifestyle than just a surfing holiday

Combining the beauty of Morocco with the “take-it-easy” attitude of the surf community, Surf and Soul Morocco offers you the ultimate taste of true freedom.

Sea you soon!

Surfing is in our Soul

Opened in September 2018, Surf and Soul Morocco is the culmination of a dream between a French/Moroccan Big Wave surfer and an Australian ocean lover and Trend Forecaster, both of whom met whilst living in Germany and Austria respectively (yes stranger things have happened!). A belief in the ethos that true spirituality comes from within, they were inspired to set up a surf and yoga camp in one of the most beautiful, natural areas in Morocco.

More a lifestyle than just a surfing holiday, their ultimate aim is to help others breathe easy, and remember what life should be about.

Perfectly Packaged

At Surf and Soul Morocco we have a deeply held belief in re-engagement – mind, body and soul – which is why we offer packages that connect all three.

ROOMS AND PRICES

Breakfast is served!

… in an easy-going, group atmosphere with organic produce and local fare.

Our food philosophy is like everything else we believe in – fresh is best, slow is better and local is king. Our packages include a healthy and hearty organic breakfast with locally sourced produce to help you power up for your day.

For your own culinary enjoyment, we can help to organize a visit to local restaurants where you may choose from a range of fresh seafood dishes, great salads and traditional Moroccan meals. Prepare your own meals in the communal kitchen and enjoy them around share tables on the Pura Atma terrace, or take a lagoon boat ride to a natural oyster farm to eat fresh oysters straight from the sea.

Discover Oualidia

Situated on the beautiful Atlantic coast of Morocco, the village of Oualidia is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. With surf beaches surrounding it and a large tidal lagoon at its heart, there are few places in the world that can match it for its serenity, natural beauty and sheer magic.

At one end, natural oyster farms beckon with the promise of fresh ocean produce, while wild wetlands play host to a range of local bird species. Watch the flamingos bask in the beauty of a North African sunset or take a boat trip around the lagoon to explore the dark depths of abandoned pirate caves. Trek the beach by horse, donkey or quadbike, and visit the Saturday village market just a 15 minute walk from our home. Partake of a traditional tagine cooked over an open fire, visit the hammam or simply chill out on our large rooftop terrace. If you want to go further afield, embark on a journey to visit the souk in Safi, where you can purchase pottery, spices and leather goods.

Make Memories & Friends

A perfect holiday is made up of memories and moments with great people. Enjoy the magic that only Morocco can offer with a range of activities and day trips to ensure you make the most of your time.

More for you:

  • Camel Ride (beach or mountain)
  • Horse or Donkey ride (beach or mountain)
  • Quads or Buggies (beach or mountain)

Natural Concerns

At Surf and Soul Morocco, we are making a concerted effort to reduce plastic waste with a focus on natural, sustainable materials in our surf camp to highlight the severity of the problem.

We provide you with clean drinking water, but as we are trying to reduce plastic and rubbish waste it would be appreciated if you could bring your own water bottle to re-fill throughout the day. Believe us, every plastic bottle less is a big step forward. 

Voluntourism… in our own small way

Every week we have a cleanup Oualidia initiative, where our guests can also volunteer to help. For one hour a week, armed with bags and gloves, we visit either the beach, the neighbourhood, the bird sanctuary or the sand dunes to collect dumped rubbish in order to free the natural habitat from the poisonous, choking effects of man-made waste.

Our aim is to educate and eradicate rubbish and plastic from the village and surrounds, to keep our beaches clean and to maintain the natural charm of the area.

We know it is not how most people wish to spend their hard-earned holiday, and that is why it is on a voluntary basis, but we also believe that most people want to make a difference – and we strongly believe that with a bit of help and a little time and effort we can slowly make a change.

Part of the family

We believe in living local and giving back, that is why, where possible, we source organic food direct from the village market and employ local craftspeople to maintain and build for us.

We aim to look after our staff and pay them a fair wage for the work that they do, so they can feed their families and have a decent quality of life. Our prices and your treatment of them should reflect this.
