Plage de Tifnit : baignade, surf, balades, pêche et fruits de mer

L'une des plages les moins connues des touristes, et l'une des plus sauvages, est celle de Tifnt (à ne pas confondre avec Tiznit). C'est la plus rapidement accessible depuis votre riad en location, après celle de Takad. On arrive à la plage de Tifnit en 55 minutes.

La surface de la capitale du Souss est comparable à celle de Paris, tout en n'étant pas (encore) entièrement construite. Dès lors que Tifnit se situe au sud d'Agadir, on évite de traverser cette grande étendue. 
 
Tifnit est un lieu de rêve. Le village de pêcheurs en partie insalubre qui y avait été aménagé de manière illégale a été détruit à fin 2023. Ressentie comme une très profonde blessure, cette destruction annonce la création d'un nouveau Parc de Souss Massa "vert et durable". 

fishing first

 

A seawater desalination plant is planned for this location, where a large building has just been built, financed by the “American people”. This fish "landing point" is intended to collect fish products, with a view to their marketing on the markets of the region and their packaging for export. The Kingdom intends to accomplishgreat efforts to develop its strong potential in this sector

 

May the little fishermen take the opportunity to improve their ordinary! Until recently, some of them sold the product of their day at sea at rock bottom prices. Even today, if you know how to do it, you will be able to haggle John Dory, sea bream, crabs and giant prawns!

 

Any amateur fisherman can also indulge inits activity by the ocean, in a sublime landscape. Pelote fishing is practiced most frequently.

Swimming, surfing, walking and animals

 

Tifnit is a goal of excursion in itself. The first pleasure is that of swimming. Beware, however, of the waves, which can be quite powerful! Your children will be able to paddle in the Atlantic or frankly swim in it in safety as long as you take care to choose a cove or a protected place. On the other hand, the vigor of the ocean makes surfers happy! Conditions here are wilder and less organized thanin Taghazout or in Banana Beach, north of Agadir.

 

Especially at low tide, the walk along the coast south of the village is magical. Between rocks and fine sand, your steps will take you in half an hour to a rocky outcrop that defines the horizon. It is possible to continue your journey for several more kilometers, if you feel like it. The particularity of this course is to follow a cliff long inhabited by local fishermen. These troglodyte dwellings with the charm of another time presented the risk of collapse. The authorities have therefore closed, prohibited or even destroyed them. But some of these habitats are once again occupied. In defense of the offenders, the view is heavenly! Too bad that here as elsewhere rubbish spoils the beauty of Morocco...

 

Observe the animals

 

It is also at Tfinit that you can admirethe breeding animals of the Souss Massa animal park, if you do not intend to visit the park organized through an operator from Agadir. The best way to see gazelles and antelopes is to park to the right along the road before it descends into Tifnit. The fences of the park almost touch the road. You have to be patient and not make noise. No doubt you will be rewarded.

 
What a scandal, this waste and this pollution!
Anchor 5

The charm of Tifnit, a place of dreams, makes the pollution that one encounters there all the more unbearable. As in many, many places in the Kingdom, there are stumbles on piles of waste which are a scandal.

 

Plastic bottles and bags, metal cans and leftover food of all kinds litter the ground without the locals moving an eye. As if the difficulties of life made them insensitive to the ugliness they rub shoulders with every day. Shouldn't the endemic unemployment that strikes Morocco encourage the State to organize the permanent cleaning of the country, and in particular of its most touristic places, while occupying people who do nothing, or almost? This in the name of essential ecology, but also of economic interests and better social cohesion.

 

 

 
Homard grillé chez Maxim's
Ancre 1

La destruction, fin 2023, du village insalubre de Tifnit avait amené aussi à la destruction des petits restaurants, faits de bric et de broc, mais au charme maximal, qui servaient poisson et fruits de mer d'une fraîcheur inégalable.

La nature ayant horreur du vide, et parce qu'il faut bien vivre, plusieurs des exploitants chassés de leur ancienne table artisanale ont repris leur activité de manière moins structurée mais tout aussi efficace. C'est ainsi que Maxim's, qui régalait déjà ses visiteurs les pieds dans l'eau, dans l'ancien village, a repris du service.

Sous des parasols équipant de petites tables, il propose désormais homards et poissons au-dessus de la plage, emplacement d'où l'on jouit d'une vue panoramique magnifique. Un menu composé d'une salade marocaine, de saint-pierre, et sardines et de deux magnifiques homards grillés vous reviendra à 380 dh. C'est un peu plus cher que par le passé, mais toujours sans égal par rapport aux prix européens et toujours aussi jouissif !  Tifnit revit, à sa manière !

Takkad Beach: absolute calm and destitution
Ancre 2
Ancre 3

Takkad Beach is located a few kilometers north of Tifnit Beach. From the express road that leads to Tiznit, you can access it by an asphalt road that you take just before the town of Sidi Bibi coming from the Jardin aux Etoiles.

 

Takkad is characterized by absolute calm: no café, no fish landing station like in Tifnit. Just a few fishermen's houses in a rather advanced state of disrepair. The destitution is evident. 

 

The beach has retained its natural appearance. You can fish there, walk around, especially at low tide, and swim there. However, pay attention to the height of the waves.
