Please note:

We normally need at least 3 or 4 people to run a trip (details specific to each trip below), and can take a maximum of 7 passengers in the car. However, if you are a bigger or smaller group we’re happy to make arrangements: just drop us a line to discuss alternative options and pricing, as we can always hire another vehicle, or take 1-2 people only for a small premium.

DAKHLA VISIT 

 This tour is ideal for no wind mornings, or if you want a break from kiting one morning during the week. If you are interested in learning about new cultures, come with us to see the real Moroccan and Saharawi lifestyle. We will show you: the fishing port, the traditional food market, Dakhla’s souk, and we can finish up in one of Dakhla’s nicest cafés, overlooking the lagoon.

Price: €20 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

SPEED SPOT \ SPOT DE VITESSE 

One of Dakhla’s most famous spots: behind the big dune in the middle of the main lagoon you will discover the legendary speed spot. Here the wind blows offshore, which causes miraculous flat-water conditions.

 

Price:

  • €20 per person, 3 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request). This includes the trip to the speed spot by 4x4, and 2 hours of guided riding at the spot.

  • €100 per person private coaching combo. We suggest taking a 2-hour kite lesson down at the speed spot. Transport is included and the coaching price is reduced (normally 1 hour of private coaching is €30, see the ‘Coaching’ page).

WHITE DUNE 

Every kitesurfer should experience the unique white dune, one of Dakhla’s unforgettable highlights.

 

Advanced kitesurfers can travel there by downwinder, guided by Pro Kite Morocco, or we can take you there by 4x4 from town or from the main lagoon, off-roading for around 40 minutes through the desert.

 

When there isn’t enough wind at the lagoon, which doesn’t happen too often, we generally get 3 to 5 knots more at the white dune, so it’s a safe bet for Dakhla’s ‘lighter wind’ days.

 

The downwinder takes around an hour and a half from the main lagoon, and we sometimes encounter flamingos and even dolphins on the way. When we reach the white dune the 4x4 will be waiting for you with water and snacks – and a picnic lunch if arranged in advance – and then you can spend as much time as you like relaxing or kiting around this most perfect of spots, or until the tide goes out.

 

Note that we should time the trip according to the tides to ensure you get the most out of your time at the white dune: this varies during the year so drop us a line to see what’s best during your stay.

 

Price:

  • Downwinder to the white dune with Pro Kite Morocco guide, return trip by 4x4: €25 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

  • Return trip by 4x4 to the white dune with Pro Kite Morocco guiding for your kite session: €20 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

    • Refreshments (water, biscuits) are included in the price of both trips (the downwinder and the 4x4 trip to the white dune), and we can arrange picnics upon request for a small cost depending on your preferences (gourmet or budget!) – just let us know in advance.

SECRET SPOT 

Shhh! Let’s not talk too much about this place: we’ll just say that the secret spot is one of the places that will make your holidays happier. It works depending on the tides and the wind direction, for about 4 hours per day. Drop us a message if you want to come and discover the secret spot with Pro Kite Morocco. All levels welcomed!

 

Price:

 

Return trip to the secret spot with Pro Kite Morocco guiding for your kite session: €25 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

 

Refreshments (water, biscuits) are included in the price, and we can arrange picnics upon request for a small cost depending on your preferences (gourmet or budget!) – just let us know in advance.

OYSTER FARM 

The ‘oyster farm,’ or ‘oyster park’ in French, is essentially Dakhla’s best restaurant. Think fresh seafood, fish, and vegetables grilled to perfection, or served up in a tagine, or some of the world’s finest oysters, caught minutes beforehand right in front of you. The oyster farm is not to be missed on any trip to Dakhla, and we can take you there by land or by kite!

 

It’s set on a beach half way between the lagoon and the town, so we can pick you up from either, or organise a downwinder from the lagoon, for intermediate and advanced riders. You’ll kite for about 45 minutes through some completely empty flat-water spots, and pass closely by dragon island – which side of the island you’ll get up-close views of depends on the tide. We’ll land our kites on the beach in front of the restaurant, and refresh with some hot mint tea and a seafood feast.

 

If your group has a variety of levels, we can arrange to guide the advanced riders on a downwinder, and drive the beginners or non-riders to meet you at the oyster farm for lunch. Drop us a line, and we can tailor the trip to fit you.

 

Price:

  • Return trip to the oyster farm by car from the lagoon or from town: €15 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

  • Guided downwinder to the oyster farm from the main lagoon, with drop-off back at the lagoon or in town afterwards by car: €15 per person, 4 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request).

  • Lunch itself: we advise you budget about €10-15 per person.

OUM LABUIRE WAVE SPOT 

If you love riding waves, come and experience our local wave spot, at Oum Labouir beach, on the coastal side of the Dakhla peninsula. We can arrange surf board or kite gear hire, and take you to discover the endless rolling waves through this awesome spot with a consistent side-shore wind. The wave season is from September to May, though it depends on the tide and swell, and there are small waves in the summer months.

 

Price:

  • €20 per person, 3 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request), including pick up and drop off at your accommodation, and refreshments (water, biscuits).

  • Let us know if you want to hire surf boards or any other equipment, and we can advise you of the prices accordingly.

OVERNIGHT CAMPING AT THE WHITEDUNE
 

Camping in the desert, under the Saharan stars is a pretty exceptional way to spend an evening. We love to share this memorable experience with our guests, and invite you to discover our culture, landscapes and warm hospitality, with dinner barbecued by our team, Moroccan mint tea around the campfire, and sleeping in the hug of the desert, in a traditional Saharawi tent. This is the ‘real’ Bedouin experience, away from the tourist camps.

 

We will prepare breakfast for you in the morning, and you can spend as much time the next day kiting around the white dune, or even going on a downwinder directly from the white dune to the oyster farm for lunch the following afternoon, before we drop you back at your accommodation. We can also take you to the oyster farm by road, if you want to round this excursion off with Dakhla’s finest seafood, but don’t want to kite there.

 

For the camping trip, we will provide all the food, drinks, mattresses and blankets: just bring your toothbrush, warm clothes, and kiting gear. Please note that this option does not have bathrooms, because this is a wilderness area of Dakhla.

 

Price

  • Overnight camping at the white dune: €55 per person, 5 – 7 people (larger groups catered for upon request). This includes dinner, breakfast, camping gear and transportation. Let us know if you want to combine this with lessons or kiting equipment hire.

  • Overnight camping at the white dune, followed by lunch at the oyster farm the next day:

    • €65 per person (plus you should budget around €10-15 for the lunch), whether by downwinder or road.

DESERT TOUR: IMLILI, PORTO RICO, WHITE DUNE, HOT SPRING SOURCE ASNA OYSTER FARM
TOUR DU DESERT 

A little further afield from Dakhla are the hidden gems of Imlili oasis and Porto Rico beach. We suggest combining your inland exploration with a visit to the famous White Dune and a cool-down at the hot springs, culminating in a sumptuous late lunch at the oyster farm - Dakhla's premier seafood restaurant.

 

Imlili is a picturesque oasis in the middle of the Sahara: we can take you by 4-wheel drive through the breath-taking desert scenery and sand dunes to reach these secluded, shady pools to cool off by.

 

Next we will drive you on to Porto Rico, newly accessible to visitors. This spectacular, unspoiled beach is about 20km south of El Argoub, the tiny fishing village whose lights you can sometimes spot at night from Dakhla town, across the lagoon on the road to Mauritania. With huge expanses of pristine sand, rocks and cliffs to explore, you can relax or go for a swim here before we head to the iconic White Dune.

 

The White Dune is an unmissable local landmark, rising up from the lunar desert landscape before plunging into the blue-green lagoon: the views from the top (and if you like, a freewheeling run to the bottom) leave us breathless every time. 

 

Wash the sand off with a power shower from the Source Asna, a natural hot spring just behind the main lagoon, before finishing up with a seafood spread fit for a king at the famous 'oyster farm' restaurant.

 

Plan about 6 hours for this adventure into the desert: we suggest a 9am departure, but do drop us a line to discuss timings, or arrange a picnic, if you want to spend longer exploring each spot.

 

Price: €35 per person
