Dakhla is an ideal destination for all levels of kitesurfers with more than 330 windy days a year. The lagoon is surrounded by stunning deserts and you may even come across some dolphins and flamingos as you are kiting along. 

There are several surf areas; La Sarga, Point d'Or and Foumbouir. Foumbouir being the most famous as it often hosts world surfing and kitesurfing championships. The best time of year for surfing is October to April and luckily for kitesurfers it really is great all year round.

Local Town

UCPA ​Dakhla is located just a few hundred metres away from the small local airport. 

The town is built on the narrow Rio de Oro peninsula, which in turn provides it with great areas for kite surfing, from long beaches to wide lagoons.

Morocco has one of the most diverse cuisines in the world, influenced by so many different countries. Dakhla itself is famous for it's hand picked oyster farming and huge variety of marine delights.

  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.
