Mirleft, Sea, surf ‘n’ sun on the Atlantic coast
Mirleft is a small town on the Moroccan coast between its beaches, vertiginous cliffs and small coves delicately hemmed with sand.
This little village, still far from an identical seaside tourism as Agadir, is hung on steep hillsides dominating the ocean power. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, an old ruined fort always seems to be on the main street bordered by blue arcades where there is an assortment of shops offering local or artisanal products.
Babouches, pottery, argan oil and derivatives, fishing equipment, of course, cohabit with the traditional cafes restaurants that animate all the terraces of the Moroccan cities.
From Tiznit, a road lined with argan trees where small black goats climb to graze the leaves, from prickly pears to delicious fruit, winds through the first foothills of the Anti-Atlas before reaching Mirleft. The coastal road from Sidi Ifni between the ocean and Atlas slopes offering wonderful landscapes.
A tourist attraction facing the ocean
If the mildness of its oceanic climate attracts a growing number of tourists, its fish-bearing waters, its fine sandy beaches, its ocher cliffs glowing still more in the evening sun, its regular waves also attract lovers of fishing in Sea and water sports enthusiasts.
It’s embarked on traditional wooden canoes or from the beach with surfcasting throws, long rod with duly weighted lead, projected away in the waves that local fishermen hunt sea bream and sea wolves. The most adventurous are perched in a precarious balance on the tiny cornices of cliffs dominating the waves of this tumultuous ocean.
Like Aglou-Plage or Sidi Ifni in the vicinity, its long white shores with regular rollers, the wind often present have contributed to make Mirleft a recognized spot on which many surfers or windsurfers come to practice there their time passes Favorites in a serene setting.
Mirleft, in addition to its beautiful little creeks dominated by cliffs, has a very long and beautiful beach of white sand, Sidi Mohammed Abdallah, where the swimming can be practiced while taking certain precautions against the ardor of the strong currents and the sea beating the shore with impetuosity.
On the promontory where the ruins of the old fort lie, the ocean, sometimes dazzling with spray, sails behind the eyes, rich with the sunset’s colors, framed by ocher walls fringed with sandy coves. Further, the hinterland takes shape giving desires for walks or mountain bike excursions, backpacking on mules.
This is all of what this small Atlantic haven of peace offers in a climate of relaxation with always pleasant temperatures…
Mirleft consists mainly of a main thoroughfare lined with arcades buildings. Many shops offer local crafts: babouches, pottery, but also the argan oil produced in the region as well as cosmetics derived from this wonderful natural oil.
The village is well equipped with various services, dispensary, doctors, post office, banks, garages and of course the traditional cafes and restaurants offering tagines and the renowned Moroccan tea, as well as various accommodation establishments.
