Answer Of course, surfing can be taught from a young age (we recommend your kid should know swimming already), but if you prefer your child to wait a little longer,
there is enough to do for him/her. We are at the ocean so located at the possible biggest sand garden your kid is ever going to see :-)

Answer What are the passport and Visa requirements?
Passports must be valid for 6 months from date of entry into Morocco. British and European passport holders do not require a Visa for stays of up to 90 days and will get a visa on entry. All other passport holders should consult their nearest Moroccan Embassy for advice on visa requirements.
What clothing should I bring?
Answer Morocco is a liberal Muslim country where men and women are welcome to wear shorts and t-shirts. Swimming costumes and bikinis are normal on the beach but it is advisable to cover up your arms and legs a bit when walking around town. This is advised for your own comfort and to show respect towards the local religion. If you’re visiting in winter we advise that you bring trousers and jumpers as the evenings can get chilly.

dirham). We advise you to change money on arrival at the airport at the currency exchange office. From the surf house, the closest ATM’s are in Aourir
(also well known as Banana village), which is 5 km distance from the surf & yoga house. We often pass this village when driving to the surf and we
can stop here on request. From Villa Surya, the closest ATM is located in the Paradise Plage resort, which is a 5 minutes walk from the Villa.
We do not exchange money in the surf or yoga villa.
