If you have a Campervan this is an awesome spot to camp out. The ground is not too tent-friendly, and if you spend the night park near other surfers, it's good for comraderie and security.
At low tide, the reef is totally exposed. As tide comes in, the reef starts to break. Very sucky, ledgy take off. Take off spot is the size of a small car.
Pay attention when you walk down the cliff because it's full of beer glass bottle and you can really injure your foot.
Awesome place. Deep in the morrocan wonderlands is a stunning bay, that with enough sell produces a handful of sick righthand pointbreaks. the locals in Tahgazout village are super cool, they guy who owns the laundromat is a legend and also has good, cheap rooms to rent. Momo is a remnant from taghazoutes hippy paradise era of the 60's and has amazing stories to tell. All round a great surftrip.
The spot is really fun but locals are crazy.

Can be amazing - I have spent about 6 weeks around this area and surfed mysterys when it was mind blowing, which was twice in that time. The takeoff area is very tight and it was a matter of deeper,deeper deeper to get a wave(there were some good but greedy bodyboarders around)but boy it was worth it - the such a nice barrelling wave when the tide is right. The reef can be intimidatingly shallow when it is!
