The Dakhla region
The Dakhla region, located at the southwestern tip of Morocco, is a true paradise for those who love wild spaces and adventure. This region offers a perfect combination of white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, panoramic views of migratory birds, and ideal conditions for water sports such as kitesurfing or windsurfing.
Bordered by more than 600 km of coastline on the Atlantic Ocean, Dakhla is also an ideal place for nature lovers, with lagoons and salt marshes that provide a habitat for a wide variety of animal species.
In addition, Dakhla is still relatively unknown as a tourist destination, offering simple and environmentally friendly accommodations away from the usual tourist hotspots. The bungalows that have replaced the tents of the first tourists are equipped with a water drilling system that supplies the bungalows and gardens, while preserving the precious water resources of the region.
Finally, Dakhla is also a meeting place for athletes from all continents who come to practice their shared passion in a festive and friendly atmosphere. Professional kitesurfer Rachid Roussafi, who discovered this place 20 years ago, describes it as “the best spot in the world for kitesurfing,” offering ideal conditions for this sport.
Kitesurfing in Dakhla
Kitesurfing in Dakhla is an incredible experience. To make the most of it, it’s important to find good accommodation near the kitesurfing spots.
Choosing the right equipment can be difficult to predict wind conditions. We recommend bringing both a small and a large kite (for example, 8, 10, and 12) to cover a wide range of wind conditions.
The conditions in Dakhla are ideal for twin tip and foil kitesurfing, with most spots located on the main lagoon. The water is generally shallow, but there are also deeper spots, so don’t forget to bring a foil if you like that.
In summary, Dakhla is an ideal place for kitesurfing. With the right equipment and good preparation, you will have an unforgettable time. Don’t be afraid to try new things and explore different spots. Happy kitesurfing!
