Tifnit beach: swimming, surfing,
walks, fishing and fish
One of the beaches less known to tourists, and one of the wildest, is Tifnt (not to be confused with Tiznit). It is the most quickly accessible from your rental riad, after that of Takad . We get there in less than an hour.
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
The surface area of the capital of Souss is comparable to that of Paris, although it is not (yet) fully built. As soon as Tifnit is located south of Agadir , one avoids crossing this large expanse.
Tifnit is a dream place. No wonder promoters are planning to set up a station that is meant to be exemplary from an ecological point of view. Work was due to start in 2011 and the first stone was announced for spring 2014 ... Wait and see!
L'industrie du tourisme n'a pas encore pris ses quartiers à Tifnit. Profitons-en !

Les pêcheurs vendent sur place le produit de leur pêche du jour
Un village de pêcheurs aux allures grecques
A seawater desalination station envisaged at this location, where a large building has just been constructed, financed by the "American people". This fish "landing point" is intended to bring together fishery products, with a view to their marketing on the region's markets and their packaging for export. The Kingdom intends to make great efforts to develop its strong potential in this sector .
May the small fishermen take advantage of this to improve their everyday life! Until recently, some of them sold the product of their day at sea at bargain prices. Even today, if you know how to do it, you will manage to haggle for Saint-Pierre, sea bream, crabs and giant prawns!
Any amateur fisherman can also indulge in his activity by the ocean, in a sublime landscape. It is the pelota fishing that is practiced most frequently.

Un spot moins sophistiqué qu'à Taghazout ou à Banana Beach, au nord d'Agadir
Un air de village grec, mais peut-être pas pour longtemps encore. Un projet de station écologique a été déposé et plusieurs maisons villageoises sont en cours de démolition
Destiné à mieux commercialiser les produits de la pêche dans les souks de la région, mais aussi à destination de l'exportation
Les eaux marocaines sont très poissonneuses, grâce au phénomène de l'up-welling
Swimming, surfing, walking and animals
Tifnit is an excursion destination in itself. The first pleasure is that of swimming. Be careful, however, of the waves, which can be quite powerful! Your children will be able to paddle in the Atlantic or frankly swim there in safety as long as you take care to choose a cove or a protected place. The vigor of the ocean, on the other hand, is a delight for surfers! The conditions here are wilder and less organized than in Taghazout or Banana Beach , north of Agadir.
Especially at low tide, the walk along the coast south of the village is magical. Between rocks and fine sand, your steps will take you in half an hour to a rocky outcrop that defines the horizon. It is possible to continue on your way for several more kilometers, if you feel like it. The particularity of this course consists in following a cliff long inhabited by local fishermen. These cave dwellings with the charm of another time presented risks of collapse. The authorities therefore closed, banned and even destroyed them. But some of these habitats are once again occupied. In the defense of offenders, the view is heavenly! Too bad that here as elsewhere rubbish spoils the beauty of Morocco ...
It is also in Tfinit that one can admire the animals in reproduction of the animal park of Souss Massa, if one does not intend to make the visit of the park organized by the intermediary of an operator of Agadir. The best way to see gazelles and antelopes is to park on the right side of the road before it descends on Tifnit. The park fences almost touch the road. You have to be patient and not make noise. No doubt you will be rewarded.
What a scandal, this waste and this pollution!
L'Atlantique amène des cadeaux indésirables...
Vu le chômage endémique au Maroc, ne pourrait-on pas motiver des gens à nettoyer leur pays ?
Un spectacle que l'on n'aimerait pas voir...
Comment dans ces conditions bien profiter du sable et de l'eau ?
The charm of Tifnit, a dream location, makes the pollution that one encounters there all the more unbearable. As in many, too many places in the Kingdom, we come up against piles of waste which are a scandal.
Plastic bottles and bags, metal cans and food scraps of all kinds litter the ground without the locals moving an eye. As if the difficulties of life made them insensitive to the ugliness they encounter all day long. Shouldn't the endemic unemployment which strikes Morocco incite the State to organize the permanent cleansing of the country, and in particular of its most touristic places, while occupying people who do nothing, or almost? This in the name of essential ecology, but also of economic interests and better social cohesion.
