The N1 road from Essaouira to the south brings a varied drive through impressive landscapes but can get a bit strenuous due to the countless curves and the inland heat. But once you make it past that last pass relieve comes with the viewing the Atlantic again. A few serpentines later you drive along a river bed with lush green banana plantations along its shores. A little bit inland you reach a small but busy town. Tamri is a local market place where all kind of vegetables and animals are traded. Due to the many plantations along the river, some of the best bananas of the area can be bought here. Some small cafes invite for a rest. Continuing the road south you pass some more plantations along the river before you reach the coast again. Take the dirt road at the first curve of the main road before it starts following the coast. Drive down to the parking lot at the beach of the river mouth.
The N1 road from Agadir to the north brings a varied drive through impressive coastal landscapes but can get a bit strenuous when all the famous point breaks of the area are flat. Do not lose hope even when Boilers is flat but continue driving north until the road heads inland. Turn off to the left on the dirt road just behind that last bend. Drive down to the parking lot at the beach of the river mouth.
Chances are high, that locals approach you asking for a parking fee on the lot. Tell them that you want to check the waves first. When it´s worth staying pay your fee or just tell them that this is a public beach with a public parking lot. Your decision depends just on how you feel more comfortable.
Tamri beach is almost never flat and often the last hope when the swell is too small and or comes too much from the north. Do not expect too much, it is a mediocre beach break that closes out quickly and often is crowded by hordes of surf schools. But it is a nice beach and, as said before, often the last hope.
