Week-end crowdFew surfers
The place is absolutely empty in winter (end of sept to dec), you can find very cheap accomodation and the food is even cheaper (local fish). In summer the place can be a little crowded but the locals are very welcoming and willig to share. If you're in the North of Morocco the place is worth visiting.Moulay Bousselham is an excellent spot. It does't need a big swell to work, I've surfed it even in summer and it was 1,5 to 2 metres big (measured from behind) and got barreled very often. The beach (3ieme piscine) can be very crowded in summer, but still the peak doesn't get that full....in winter you'll find every day waves, very big and often with a good offshore wind,best time to surf it. In this time Moulay is pretty empty and not crowded with people like in summer, so visit Moulay and you will see what a magical spot it is, great waves I can tell you.
Once there you might be hit with a feeling of beeing cut off from the world. There will be just you the see and the sand. The summer is when the place is crowded but not a problem as the surfers represent 2% of the people in the water. The accomodation is very cheap you can either visit the local camp site or stay in a guest house.
You can even enjoy the luxury of eating out every night for 3USD a meal.
I think it's a great place to enjoy good surfing conditions, the location is very colorful and stress-free so if by any chance while you're driving you see the signpost "Moulay Bousselham" just don't hesitate hurry there and enjoy!!!!!!!!

Warm Greetings from Dubai - to all each and every person who is falling in love with MoulayBouselham.
To be honest Moulaybouselham is far from comparison it's naturaly shaped as small pic of the ideal city. unfortunatly the authoroties are not aware and they don't acknowledge the natural beauty as they just think about their personal profit.
I'm feeling sorry and you should feel so as this's our beach and our family had been spending summer there since ever, please let's shout together loudly at the samw time (Save MoulayBouselham).
for anyone who lost contact with me feel free to contact me directly via my personal email : email@example.com
My name is Aniss originaly from Souk El Arbaa but i moved to Dubai since 1 year ago.
Take much care and all my best Regards To Moulaybouselham.
