2. La source
We actually don’t want to share you this hidden beach because it is a real pearl on the coastline of Taghazout. The beach La Source is a small hidden beach close to Killer Point.
You can reach the beach via a steep staircase. At low tide you can walk along the high cliffs of Killer point. Highly recommended!
This beach in Taghazout can have strong waves. When the tide is high and the swell is strong, the beach is sometimes inaccessible (the whole beach is swept away by the waves). Great for the surfers! But if you only want to visit the beach and swim then it is best to visit this beach during low tide and with a weak swell.
3. Devils Rock
Southwards towards Tamraght you can find the beach Devils Rock. This beach is easily recognized by the large rock that lies in the middle of the coastline.
Devil’s rock is a small beach with some lovely restaurants on the shoreline. It is perfect for children because it is well-arranged, so you can lose track of your children less quickly. From the big rock there is a lot of frequent jumping into the sea. But be careful! It is not an official dive site and depending on the sea level it can be very dangerous.
