Change of scenery guaranteed in the region of Dakhla, in the south of Morocco and its sandy shore plunging into the Atlantic. The large bay offers ideal conditions for lovers of skiing, calm ...
The last flight from Casablanca lands in Dakhla every evening a little before midnight. Luggage on the roof of an all-terrain vehicle and off we went to El Argoub about sixty kilometers away, in the night of a desert that already imposed its silence. Some slowdowns by the royal gendarmerie on the road, reminiscent of the tensions that have shaken the region since the wishes of the Polisario Front
When to go
All year round with warmer temperatures in summer but cooled by the ocean wind. From June to September, the wind conditions are ideal for kiting and boarding.
What to do between Dakhla and El Argoub?
Recharge. Apart from sliding on his board, not much to do at the sight of the isolation of El Argoub. The region encourages meditation (yoga courses offered in the camp). Walks in the desert, facing the sea, are practiced safely north and south of Heliophora. Mushroom town of 65,000 inhabitants developed since the 1970s, from a garrison. A Spanish church, meager memory of the past presence and a school named after Odette Puigaudeau, the incredible Breton explorer who roamed the region, on camelback, between 1933 and 1934.
White dune. Exceptional natural site and geological curiosity.
Dream Spot. Nature in all its splendor with a neighboring chamellerie which offers its milk for tasting. How to get there? From Nantes with Royal Air Maroc, via Casablanca, for two flights per day. Allow 2 hours 10 flight to Casablanca and 1 hour 50 to Dakhla. Transavia, the Air France subsidiary, has just launched a rotation, departing from Paris on Thursday. Direct flight, 3 hours 45 minutes.
