Home to the desert, ocean waves, diverse wildlife, ancient culture and also incredibly remote - this is Dakhla. If you want to experience a side of Morocco that most people miss out on, then this city is for you.
A long time favorite for surfers, kitesurfers and anyone who loves big waves, this city offers the best of the ocean, right alongside the Sahara desert. For kitesurfers, this place is paradise. It is windy here 300 days per year and with a lagoon as well as ocean access, it is accessible to both beginners and professionals as evidenced by the many international surfing and kitesurfing competitions have been held here.
With the lagoon offering unique shelter in the area, this place is also home to an incredibly diverse array of wildlife. UNESCO has even supported a project to help preserve the biodiversity here.
