Dakhla, in Morocco (Western Sahara), is a place that, within a few kilometers, offers many different spots, both for windsurfing and kitesurfing and surfing as well, and that, above all, has a frequency of very high wind days. We have recently tried some spots in that area, and, in this review, we provide an accurate description of them, with many tips you won't find anywhere else.
Windsurfing, spots reviews: Dakhla, Morocco (Western Sahara)
We had the chance to try the various spots in the Dakhla area, for the first time in June 2018. We organized a really last minute trip (read report), in just three days, to be sure to find good wind conditions, and we were lucky. During our 7 days of staying, full of windsurfing, we had strong wind for 3 days, and medium wind for others 4. Zero days of calm. The first days, we had also good swell conditions, enjoyed in the spot of Lassarga.
At Dakhla, the coast is characterized by a huge 40 km long peninsula that separates a 10 km wide bay from the ocean; the bay, perhaps improperly, is generally called the lagoon. The spots inside the lagoon offer flat or choppy water conditions, while the spots of the beaches that overlook the ocean can offer conditions that vary from flat water, to bump and jump, to fairly challenging wave conditions.
Before proceeding to the detailed description of the spots and related logistics, we focus on some general considerations, useful for organizing the trip.
