I first visited Tamraght in 2017 to see friends who had recently moved to the area for the surf. I had been to Morocco a couple of times before and I had often heard about the legend of the Southern Atlantic Coast, so I wanted to come and check it out for myself.
From the winding, dusty roads and beautiful crumbling buildings to the abundance of larger than life street animals who call this traditional Moroccan village their home, Tamraght had me at hello.
The beaches are vast, the waves are brilliant for learning to surf and the water is much warmer than the UK at this time of year, think of Cornish temperatures in summer. So after arriving back from spending 10 weeks in South-East Asia and Australia to frozen Europe, it was a relief to be able to pack my bags once again and head for the sunnier climates of southern Morocco.
I enjoy taking photos on my phone and although there is an abundance of natural beauty in the area, it's the buildings and wonderful day-to-day goings-on that really inspire me to take the photos I do.
When it comes to photography, you're totally spoilt for choice, everything is just so photogenic. From the buildings to the skies the colours in Tamraght are richer and deeper than and I found the best times to capture them to be at dawn and dusk.
The sun mostly shines in Tamraght and during my stay I got to meet some really interesting, friendly people. From the gorgeous Sophie and Morad at Azrac Surf to the wonderful gang at Baba Koul and Sarah at Tamraght Yoga Studio, the awesome Lucy at Moroccan Animal Aid and Beth who has Berber Blue, a wicked fashion brand that combines traditional Moroccan fabrics with vintage denim jackets, Tamraght is awash with creative, brilliant people who all make it the awesome place I love coming back to.
I had a really brilliant month away in Tamraght with Azrac Surf. I linked up with Sophie and Morad on Workaway so if you think you've got something to give, get online and check them out, nothing could be more fun to promote than a totally brilliant surf and yoga escape!
