We are still under construction in the main building and you can witness our team at work, a mix a volunteers and local builders, finishing to create this wonderful project.

Our Moroccan fusion tapas bar features a menu updated daily, consistently offering the freshest seasonal produce. Let us indulge you in the finest catch of the day supplied by the fishermen of our local village Tafedna.

We offer surf board and wetsuit hire and are happy to provide lessons with a local surf instructor.

Location Information

Tafedna – A sleepy little fisherman village, situated on the Atlantic coast, one hour from Essaouira. You slowly descend, surrounded by panoramic ocean views into a one street kind of town, there you can find the traditional blue fishing boats, each sunset you can see them heading out and returning the next morning, boats brimming with the daily catch.



Situated right on the coast, a quick 600m stoll and you find yourself on a pristine beach, complete with ever changing sand dunes and perfect rolling waves. About 3kms long from one cape to the next and mostly deserted, the beach is perfect for taking that cliché horse ride at sunset that you’ve always wanted to. …

The village is accessed by a stroll along the beach, or via a path nestled between the area’s farms of maize and date trees.

Thirty minutes walk away is a natural canyon where for most of the year you can picnic at a delightful rock pool surrounded by limestone cliffs and flowering oleanders.

To the north you can trek past Cape Tafelney to discover hidden ocean outlets.

To the south is a rare landscape of rocks shaped by the wind.

In every direction you can make your own discoveries: donkeys, dromedaries, bird life, the local Berber men tending their wells, or a chance encounter with the local hunter carrying his old rifle, a pocket full of shells and his family’s fare casually tossed over the shoulder.

Close enough for day trips by car are some of the highlights of any Moroccan adventure.
