Welcome to Dakhla

Formerly called Villa Cisneros, Dakha, the pearl of the south, is located in the Sahara.

Renowned for its tourist attractions, the city is full of breathtaking landscapes.

Dakhla is both charming and breathtaking, offering a mild climate cradled between the waters of the Atlantic and the desert sands, a climate that has made it a popular spot for water sports.

Ranked number one of the world's surf spots, Dakhla attracts the greatest surfers and kitesurfers from the 5 continents who came to face its waves and walk the legendary Dune Blanche. The sublime lagoon of Dakhla is home to luxury establishments and eco-lodges, all concerned to preserve this unique place where flamingos, seals, rays and humpback dolphins rub shoulders. In addition to sports and yoga, do not forget to try Asmaa's invigorating natural hot springs. Then, at sunset, sit on the beach of Oum El Bouir to admire the desert dressing red. Unforgettable.

Do not miss to visit the oyster park, it is to delight the taste buds!
