Practical Guide



Breath-taking, sublime, sportive, serene… Relax at Dakhla:

Flights to Dakhla

A 3-hour flight from Casablanca, Royal Air Maroc can take you to Dakhla 4 times a week: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The Dakhla airport is located directly in the city.

Food and drink

Food lovers won’t want to miss out the guided tour of the Dakhla oyster farm! Once you’re there, many tasty experiences await you… Enjoy as much seafood and other fresh fish as you want!

Cultural highlights

Embark on an expedition to explore the Dragon Island, one of the many geological curiosities you can visit at Dakhla. The Island can be reached on foot at low tide, and there you’ll find many interesting shells. It’s an extraordinary location! 30km from Dakhla, discover the white dune, an amazing natural phenomenon in the middle of the lagoon. This wild habitat is also the preferred spot for pink flamingos. Try a 4x4 safari ride: after 20 minutes of trail along the bay, you’ll find landscapes that will leave you speechless! Next, visit Majdouline Island: go fishing for shells and refresh yourself with a little bath in white clay!
Discover also the benefits of the thermal baths of the natural Asmaa source, right in the middle of the desert.
Finally, if you’re looking for tranquillity, choose one of the beautiful excursions into the Moroccan desert that start at Dahkla. Go out to meet shepherds, herding camel trains and sheep. The region is ideal for bivouac camping!


There is also a strong presence of traditional craftsmanship in the region. Nomad tents are crafted from camel and goat hairs, as well as rush mats and leather bags, but also jewellery and clothing.

Leisure and recreation

There are hundreds of kilometres of empty beaches to discover, stretching from the north to the south of Dakhla!
