Susana will guide you deeply into the practice of yoga, Mourad and his team will take care that you have a relaxed stay, and all the team will share with you their profound love for the Ocean. Everyday will practice together, eat delicious food and we will surfing to the best spots under the instruction of our dedicated surf teachers– both if you are an experienced surfer or if you are planning to catch your first waves!
We welcome you to the peace and beauty of this special place while we immerse ourselves in some days of yoga and surf together.
Tamraght, in the South of Morocco is a berber village with a beautiful heart, where the locals live together with surfers from all over the world in a pacific rhythm with the Ocean.
We are at 5 minutes of the famous surfer center of Taghazout. In words of my friend Clare Beagley, “… each evening there is a special moment where the serenity of the ocean and the glowing sunset gives way to twilight, the sea begins to roar her melodious chant and one by one the stars begin to cover the sky. It’s truly magical”. All this happens to the sounds of remembrance of the Divine from the local mosque.

Owner of Bagus Surf Camp
I have over 10 years experience in tourism and surfing, and also a freelance photographer. Having managed surf companies before, I felt like something was missing – there was just no passion. So in 2015 I decided to go for it by myself and started Bagus Surf Camp. Everything we do here comes from the heart. My home is your home and I welcome the travellers of the world to enjoy life the Bagus way.
Carla is the person in charge of communication. With her great capacity for organization and her desire of service, she will make your trip preparation more smooth. You can find her at email@example.com
Safir has worked with Mourad at Bagus for a couple of years, and is a huge part of the team. He loves seeing all the guests happy and enjoying themselves, and makes delicious food with Mourad every day. Safir is always around with a smile and makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
Camila is a lovely berber women. Although she does not speak your language and she is a bit shy, she will always offer you her smile.
Bali is everyone’s favourite Bagus family member. A big bundle of fur and love, everyone who meets her falls in love with her. She’ll always welcome you and make sure you’re giving her plenty of attention!
Bagus Camp is a spacious 4-storey house, sleeping 16 people in total across 2 of the floors. We have two rooms that sleep 4 in each, two twin rooms and two double rooms. All the rooms are decorated in an authentic Moroccan style, furniture is designed for your comfort, and we provide towels for all our guests. There is a bathroom on each floor (4 toilets and showers in total) and free wifi in the camp. Our downstairs Berber salon offers sofas for you to put your feet up and relax, a projector for movie nights and a library and games centre.
Upstairs, we have another chill-out area with sofas and a breakfast kitchen space for guests, which leads onto our outside dining area and communal rooftop terrace – a great place to finish the day watching the stunning African sunset. Our small garden downstairs provides another outside space for everyone to relax in. We also have a downstairs kitchen where we cook our guests delicious meals and an office where you can find out anything you need. The whole house has a Moroccan influence and small touches that make your stay even more comfortable.
At Bagus, we want to make sure there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy their stay. That’s why two of our floors are dedicated spaces for guests to sit and socialise away from their rooms. And our friendly on-site host is available 24/7 so there is always someone around to answer your questions or have a chat with!
Both if you are an experimented surfer or if you are going to catch your first waves, this is the trip for you.

Flights & travel arrangements
You can fly to the airports of Marrakech or Agadir. Most low-cost companies fly to Marrakech or Agadir from most European cities: Ryanair, Easyjet, Vueling… Royal Air Maroc and Iberia are normally ab it more expensive options and fly both to Marrakech and Agadir opciones algo más caras y vuelan tanto a Marrakech como a Agadir.
If you arrive to Agadir, transport from the airport is included in the price. If you fly to Marrakech, you can come to Agadir by bus and we will pick you up at the bus station, or we can organise a minibus or taxi if there is a group. If your flight arrives to Marrakech late, it is better if you fly one day before and spend a night there. Marrakech is one of the main touristic destinations in Morocco and has a huge offer of accommodation and entertaining.
