Kenitra, is one of the closest "surfable" beaches to Rabat and Casablanca. If you have to fly in and out to Morocco and do not have much time or if you're just visiting these major Moroccan cities, than you want to head up to Kenitra and catch some waves over there.
Formerly known as Port Lyautey, is a small city in Sebou river mouth with a very narrow relation with the Atlantic. Since its foundation by the Phoenicians, this place has always had a big military importance. This strategic gateway to the Atlantic was occupied also by Romans, Portuguese, Spanish, French and lately by Americans till the 90’s.
It was precisely the American troopers stationed here that started to surf the first waves in Morocco in the 60’s. This is why Kenitra is considered the birthplace of surfing in Morocco. The city lost its military importance and nowadays is a fishing village and a great surf destination.
At Kenitra Surf Camp you'll find a cosy atmosphere and lifestyle: the surf spirit, enjoy simple pleasures, meetings new people, sharing stories, respect and love for nature. This is the right place to experience all this just 2 minutes from the beach!
Surfing in Kenitra is just one step away if you’re living in Europe. Many direct flights connect Rabat or Casablanca every day! This is one of the best spots to learn to surf or improve surfing skills in warm Morocco.
Kenitra Surf Camp is more than a place to stay. It’s a place to discover simple pleasures and enjoy every moment in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere with other guests!
Learn how to prepare some of the local dishes like tajine and barbequing on wood fires, preparing mint tea, making crepes and bread. You will meet other surfers who will share their stories of trips in songs accompanied with guitars. You will learn other languages spoken by other international guests.
If you enjoy birds, plants and wild nature, we will take you to the birds Natural Reserve located behind the surf camp. If you are passionate about history you can visit the old Mehdia Kasbah and the nearby imperial cities and medinas (local traditional markets).
The Surf Camp has a full capacity of 15 guests in five bedrooms: one ensuite rooms and 4 bedrooms sharing two bathrooms. All rooms share an inner patio with a flourishing garden perfect to rest after your surfing session. Meals are served in in the patio around long tables for “altogether” meetings.
At the surf camp there is free access to internet by cable and WiFi.
Kenitra Surf Camp is just 2 minutes walking from some of the best surf spots in Morocco. All along Mehdia beach there are many different reef and sand breaks suitable for every surf level! One of the best spots is the powerful righthander wave called Moone that rolls along the south pier sheltered from northerlies and able to handle good size swell. Another excellent spot is the river mouth when the swell is really big!
No doubt an excellent place for learning and at the same time a good place for experienced surfers to improve their skills on daily surfaris to other spots or across Morocco provided in 4 x 4 vehicle.
Kenitra and Mehdia is a “must go” on every Morocco surf trip. This is in fact the first place surfed in Morocco, in 1964, when US soldiers from Kenitra military base brought their surf boards. Since then it has attracted many surfers from all over the world, especially from Europe running away from cold winters!
The best surfing season in Morocco is during the Winter time, from September until April due to the bigger swells and higher consistency caused by North Atlantic storms.
