Skhirat plage

Edit Spot

good spot for the intermediate-level surfers and bodyboarders, you can get great barrels for aerial tricks, or tubes if there's off-shore...

PS : pay attention to the fact that the part of the beach near to the palace is private, you don't have to go there, even if you find someone surfing there...

The peak is practically never empty when the wave works. Locals here are very cool, unless if you're the kind of jerk that doesn't respect priority rules or that doesn't repsect bodyboarders only because they don't stand-up...

on summer, it becomes very crowded...

Additional Info:
on high tide, you've got a cool beach-break to surf, and on low tide it turns to a shore-break that can be dangerous on big swells


Skhirat plage is pretty known in this region, you can simply ask any policeman to help you to find how to go there...imagine coming from rabat to casablanca via the national road( not the highway, I'm talkin about the national way, it's going near the coast), you continue until you arrive to the royal palace, right at the end of it there's a signalisation to turn right for the beach : "plage", go right there and park your car on any of the parkings there.
