It is about 3 hours coach journey to Taghazout.
Bus Journey to the site
CTM and Supratours run frequent buses from Marrakech to Agadir. The trip takes about three and a half hours and costs a measly ten euros. When you land grab a cab, a petite taxi, and head to the terminal. (They leave from different terminals, choose one and tell your cab driver, they both go often).
There’s no need to book a ticket in advance, and even if you needed to you couldn’t. This is North Africa dudes. Just go with the Berber flow.
Once in Agadir take a taxi to Taghazout, the surfing village. It’s really small, so just get dropped bang in the centre of the main road. And once in Taghazout, ask for Cafe de la Paix and the venue is directly behind it, we will also have festival banners up.

FERRY FROM TARIFA (Southern Spain) to Tangier (Morocco):
If you already are in the South of Spain, the best option is to take a ferry from Tarifa to Tangier ( About 35 Euro ), and once there to catch the CTM bus to Agadir (30 Euro). Buses from Tanger to Agadir leave at midday. When you come off the ferry, the CTM bus company has an office on the right hand side just after you pass customs.
