About your trip
From Marrakech to Taghazout, Morocco’s Atlantic coast will prove to you it’s one of the world’s best for wellness.

From yoga to cuisine, surfing to chilling, the coast of Morocco will relax and thrill you in equal measure.

Day 01 Hello, Marrakech
Welcome to Marrakech. A mixing pot of African, European and Middle Eastern influences, this is a city steeped in culture and history. Upon arrival, check into your hotel – where you’ll meet your fellow travellers and guide – before heading out together for your first-night dinner. Get to know your companions over a few regional dishes as the sun fades over the Atlas Mountains.
Day 02 En route to Essaouira
Begin the day with a yoga workshop at the hotel, where you’ll be introduced to dynamic vinyasa yoga under the guidance of a professional instructor. Then, after breakfast, venture out with your group to explore the Medina. The oldest part of the city, this is a labyrinthine sprawl of cobbled streets, ancient walls and bustling souks. Then, come afternoon, you’re off to Essaouira. Located on the western coast of Morocco, this windswept city is an old fishing port with beautiful white-washed streets and faded city walls. A photographer’s dream, you’ll discover. Settle into your new city with an afternoon yoga session, before seeking out the best seafood restaurants Essaouira has to offer.
Day 03 Explore Essaouira’s streets
After your morning yoga session, delve into a few Moroccan recipes with an interactive cooking class. Learn all about the wholesome flavours of organic Moroccan cuisine – then enjoy the fruits of your labour. In the afternoon, head out to explore the sun-kissed streets of Essaouira, ducking into its many souks and markets. Then, unwind with your afternoon yoga session, before heading out for dinner. (Each evening will follow a similar structure, where we give you a chance to fully relax through regular yoga sessions followed by dinner.)
Day 04 Surfs up in Imsouane
Wake up with your morning yoga session, then head down the coast to the town of Imsouane. This small town is one of Morocco’s best kept secrets, yet serves some of the best surf along the coast. With long, rolling waves lapping up on remote shores, this is a surfer’s paradise. Learn the basics of surfing and see how many waves you can catch, or simply relax on the beach. Then, in the afternoon, you’ll head further down the coast to the town of Taghazout. While small and remote, this fishing village is an unspoilt gem and a hotspot for surfers. Enjoy its windswept beauty and tranquil environment – ideal for sunset yoga on the beach.
Day 05 Surfing, surfing, surfing
Ease into the day with a morning yoga workshop, then hit the waves again for a few hours of surfing. This is an opportunity to build on the skills you learned yesterday and take your technique to the next level. Then, after a day on the waves, unwind with an evening yoga session before enjoying dinner with your group.
Day 06 Surfing some more
After your morning yoga session, today will be spent savouring your final day of surfing. And if you want to rest your muscles instead, bathe in the sun with a book or a podcast, or head out to explore the village. Then, in the evening, enjoy an organic feast as the sun goes down.
Day 07 Simple pleasures
After your morning yoga, the morning is free to do as you please, giving your surf-worn muscles a welcome respite. Lunch will be a charming affair in the home of a local Berber family, followed by a gentle hike in the surrounding mountains. Back at the lodge, unwind in the afternoon with a final yoga session, then enjoy a farewell dinner with your group.
Day 08 Goodbye, Taghazout
After breakfast at the hotel, it’s time to say goodbye. If you’re looking to combine this trip with another adventure, we recommend browsing our other wellness escapes for an extended experience.
