Paradis Plage is a Surf, Yoga and Spa resort located on a long stretch of sandy beach on the Atlantic Coast well North of Agadir. From its origins as a beach side café, the resort now has just over 100 rooms, villas and suites, all of which have great views of either the sea or the Atlas Mountains. All of the buildings are under two storeys tall and are well spread out amongst 3 hectares of green space which helps to maintain an intimate feel which can so often be lacking in large resorts.
The atmosphere is relaxed, combining surfer chic with pared down luxury. For families there's a children’s playground, a small children’s pool and kids club for children aged 4-11. For adults there's a large heated pool (which at times can get overrun by children, but another pool is going to be built next year), lots of comfortable, shady seating areas, from the sofas around the main pool to the relaxed surf bar by the beach. There are 6 bars and restaurants which mostly serve locally produced, organic food, with fresh fish being delivered every morning by boat. There's a spa and beauty centre on site as well as two yoga studios, another Paradis Plage speciality. For those seeking a bit of friendly competition beach games are always on offer and in the evening you’ll often be able to sit around the glowing embers of a fire pit by the beach or watch the screening of a vintage classic under the stars.
Paradis Plage works well as a relaxing one week holiday or as a relaxing tail-end to a more adventurous holiday exploring Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and possibly the Sahara Desert.
We strongly recommend giving the surf lessons a go, whether just for a fun introductory session or for a more intensive course. Children will need to be good swimmers to take part, but the surf is usually gentle, particularly in summer and it is the perfect environment to learn. There are also stand up paddle boards available to hire.
Paradis Plage offers a rare opportunity for families, allowing the more energetic members of the families to burn up some energy surfing, whilst others relax at the pool or spa.
Agadir itself is a modern City, lacking the atmosphere and historical heritage of Marrakech, and, in our opinion offers little rationale for visiting. We do recommend, however, taking a tour up to the nearby Paradise Valley (Tagharat Ankrim) which boasts a series of shallow blue pools in a picturesque gorge, visits usually include a stop at a simple local Berber restaurant.
Paradis Plage is located on the Atlantic Coast around 30 minutes' drive from Agadir. Agadir is the most convenient International Airport, with flights from London Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle. Alternatively Marrakech with flights from Stansted, Luton, Gatwick, Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and Newcastle is 3-4 hours drive away.

This holiday is possible any time of year, with sunshine year round. Temperatures are highest from May to September, but still very comfortable with the hot temperatures inland well regulated by the Atlantic and the sea breeze. The winter still sees plenty of sunshine but temperatures are usually between the high teens and mid 20s (Celsius) with occasional but relatively rare overcast or stormy spells. During the summer holidays and May half term expect perfect sunny beach weather. In April holidays and October half term it is usually still very warm and sunny during the day, but cooler at nights. Christmas and February are good bets for winter sun, but expect to need to wrap up at night and be a little chilly if in the breeze and out of the sunshine.
We would very much like to give our feedback regarding our trip to Morocco because it was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish there was nothing to fault, Mustafa our guide in the mountains was great - discrete when necessary but delightfully eloquent and informed about a wide variety of subjects. The food in the mountains was superb ( though the toilet facilities in the gites d'etape left a lot to be desired!!) The guest house Dar Adrar was beautiful with amazing views. The riad in Marrakesh was lovely and such a welcome respite after the hectic souks.....and as for the surfing.....it was fab!!!! Mohammed our instructor was patient and so super cool....a real gem and great with our children.
All in all it was wonderful and we were all sad to leave. We will definitely consider using Tourdust again and wont hesitate to recommend you to our friends.

An amazing holiday - thank you.
Trekking was excellent, Mustapha, our guide, was lovely, and food was delicious. Hotel in Imlil was also great. But litter on the mountains was upsetting.
Marrakesh is incredible. Riad (Dar Vedra) was lovely, although we were a bit unsure whether we could ask for drinks etc. The owner was away and I'm not sure the staff were as attentive as usual - or maybe we'd just been spoilt in the mountains.
Surfing was fun. We just did two mornings, but this was fine. We visited Essaouira one afternoon and went on a camel ride the other. Really liked the accommodation at Windy Kaouki. But would have been good to know that there was no cashpoint in Sidi Kaouki.
Brilliant holiday - thanks again.
Rachel Camina reviewing Two Week Family Trek & Surf Holiday on 22 August 2014
This was the first time in years I could a) afford a holiday, b) take a break from other commitments and c) spend a full week (instead of the odd Saturday afternoon) with my kids. For that reason this holiday HAD to be right. So I was careful to shop around. I spoke to several companies that all had euphoric smiling families on their websites but when I spoke to Tourdust it was immediately apparent that they had both on-the-ground experience and a genuine enthusiasm for the destination.
Tourdust did what a travel company are supposed to do – added value; I simply gave them the challenge (two hard to please teenagers, one adventurous and active, the other not so) and they put together a perfect package (e.g. a challenging but short 2 day trek, a mule for back up for the girl who has only ever exercised her finger tips). The week seemed like a month. Holidays usually require so much effort on working out what to do next, how to get from A to B, how NOT to be ripped off etc, but on this holiday all of this stress was lifted. Each time we were transferred from one location to the next it involved no more effort than throwing our things into bags and handing them to an obliging driver. All my attention and energy was therefore spent on enjoying the holiday and most of all watching the kids not just enjoy themselves but surprise me by walking (actually running!) up a mountain and not complaining, sleeping in “basic” accommodation (3 walls and not much more) and telling me it was the most enjoyable night of all, making an effort to understand a culture and see their prejudices disappear, build their confidence in a new language and taste new foods – still can’t believe they both ordered and ate a camel burger!
Thank you Tourdust for delivering the best holiday I’ve ever had and a shared experience with my kids that will be the talking point for many years to come. I only have one outstanding request from Tourdust – where are you taking us next year!
Rebecca can you please make sure that our gratitude to Yousseff is communicated; I appreciate that his job is far from easy – balancing being informative whilst allowing us privacy, encouraging us to take on the challenge but ensuring our safety and comfort. He did a thoroughly professional job – constantly attentive to our needs and providing us with a wealth of knowledge about the locality that made the trek a much richer experience than it would have been. To my delight my kids were very interested in Morocco’s culture and religion and they quizzed Yousseff extensively. He was very generous in sharing his own perspective despite some of the questions being a little undiplomatic. His pride of Morocco and especially of the local area challenged our western materialistic perception of what is of value and this was the best souvenir we took home with us.
Also could you make sure to thank the manager (Tino?) of Windy Kaouki for going out of his way to provide an alternative WiFi network connection after the usual one failed. I cannot over state how important this was to me; if I could not have responded to the support call on that Thursday evening I may have lost a major contract I’ve held for 12 years. So please pass on my thanks to him.
My kids and I came up with a few suggestions that we think would have made the trip more enjoyable:
1. If the drivers could speak English it would have added to the experience – we were lucky enough to have Yousseff with us on the trip from the Atlas Mountains to Marakech and it would have been nice to have someone speaking English on all journeys to answer all our questions about the surroundings.
2. I would advise anyone staying in small places like Sidi Kauoki not to eat in any of the small local establishments but to stick with the hotel; my son got very sick from a burger in a sea front Café.
3. Quad biking would have been great if it had been included
4. €20 for a 10 minute trip from Beldi Country Club to the airport is extortionate
Finally Rebecca, thank you for taking on the responsibility of organising my holiday. Your commitment and attention to detail was no less than what I imagine you’d dedicate to your own holiday plans.
