of spending your free time
You will not want to miss going to the White Dune or commonly known as “La Dune Blanche”. Built only by the wind, this geological wonder is a paradise for pink flamingos, stands in the middle of the bay and is completely cut off by the sea. It is reached mainly by boat or kitesurf (not suitable for beginners).
Take a look at the photo next to this description. You will understand quickly where the name Dragon Island came from. Guests who are eager to get close to the mother nature cover themselves with white clay prior to going for a dip in the lagoon. On the beach, everyone is having fun searching for sea treasures. At low tide, the island’s geological oddities are accessible on foot. Majdouline Island also has an extraordinary collection of shells. It is home to colonies of wading birds, herons and pink flamingos.
Dakhla ostrich farm
Located just outside the town, Dakhla ostrich farm is a local curiosity much loved by children. Over 250 representatives of the largest species of running bird are raised and bred there. The most surprising part of the visit for many is seeing an ostrich egg. Its size (between 15 and 20 cm) is impressive and the contents represent two dozen hen eggs. Enough to make an omelette for ten people!
Discover the Desert
Explore the Dakhla desert on a 3-hour 4WD adventure and experience the golden dunes of Morocco. Take optional camel rides, get henna hand paintings, enjoy a BBQ buffet dinner beneath the stars and much more!
Camel rides make for a great hands-on Dakhla Desert Tour. Most desert safaris include a short ride, but you can definitely opt for a tour with extended riding time.
