The surfboard symbolises the freedom of travellers. Crashing waves, a golden beach, lots of sunshine and good company are all integral parts of the surfer subculture. Here, Travel On Spot presents you with 7 places where you can easily and comfortably fit into the community of wave-catchers.

Taghazout, Morocco

Taghazout, located close to the trending and rapidly developing resort of Agadir, is a real surfer’s mecca. Tranquillity, deserts and excellent crashing waves of the Atlantic used to be the gathering place of adventurers. Now, the city also has surfing schools for beginners.

Apart from exceptional culture, excellent food, beaches and hotels, Bali also boasts fantastic conditions for surfing. While in Bali, don’t miss your opportunity to get acquainted with this sport.

Byron Bay, Australia

Byron Bay is like a capital of all Australian surfers, a holy place where hippies, live music bands and, needless to say, surfers themselves like to gather – it’s probably the best combination of exceptional waves and magnificent atmosphere in the world.
