Location: Dakhla

Perched just above the tropic (tropic of cancer) where the sands of the Sahara meet the Atlantic Ocean. Here, on a sliver of a peninsula, the Rio de Oro Peninsula in Western Sahara lays the pearl of the sands.

Western Sahara and Dakhla have hosted Berbers for over 10 centuries. Spanish seamen in search of riches from the sea seized claim to the area in the 16th century, known as Spanish Sahara, Dakhla still today is draped with Spanish influence.

This little slice of paradise nestled between the waters of the Atlantic and the sands of the Sahara. Is a wonderland of sun sand and surf, where kilometres of beaches stretch from one side of the town to the other. Where the intense Saharan heat propels a sleepy, lazy lifestyle during the day; after dark comes alive with festive, lively cafes.

Dakhla’s Rio de Oro Peninsula is far from the crowds and is yet not truly discovered. In winter, Dakhla delivers numerous world class waves.
