Pina Colada Song On And On...

Our first trip South…..

Guest post by Aisling Donnellan, gappy extraordinaire (including all photos!):

Last month the vans were loaded, snacks purchased, playlists (good and bad!!) were prepared and we quit the overwhelming odours of our beloved Taghazout and took a trip down under… We didn’t quite make it to Sidi Ifni, took our pitstop at Mirleft, incredibly mellow and beautiful little village with abandoned surf spots everywhere, was perfect….

Taghazout Sewage Update Late 2019

Phase 1 Was Complete! We thought that we were in the clear, we had a great Summer of no one getting sick and were all set for a fantastic Winter season of perfect waves and sunshine.... Sadly the subject that no one wanted to be talking about, is now at the forefront...

Taghazout, Instagram Heaven

With all the new bars and cafes, a whole new set of people are visiting Taghazout, no longer a place for just the diehard surfers over Winter! OK, so you’ve read all the articles about ‘grammers’ getting free trips, posing in special locations, in fact, queues forming...
