Relieve tight aching muscles with the fantastic treatments at the local hammam massage parlor. Just a 5 minute walk from the surf camp you can take a 1 hour relaxing or strong massage with local Argan beauty products for just 200 mad per person.

We recommend this salon as it is ran by local people but is tourist friendly and clean. In your local parlor you can enjoy the hammam with local argan products, mud masks and other beauty products for just 200 mad per person.
