Dakhla peninsula is a fantastic combination of the desert sand with an ocean refresh that provides the most breathtaking spots you can think of.
Nature has been playing a lot on this area, giving us very good places to explore and enjoy the wildlife that surrounds it, like the pink flamingos, the typical one claw crabs, the dolphins, etc.
Check out our favorite spots below to which you can book a trip at the hotel reception and one of our kind drivers will take you on a 4x4 ride.
The Dakhla peninsula has a water extension of about 40kms and is most commonly know as Dakhla lagoon. This huge lagoon is a paradise for kitesurf and windsurf because it allows you to chose between the different conditions of each spot inside.
The main spot is the wide are right in front of the hotel and sport center. When you wake up on your bungalow or tent, this is what you will be looking at first.
This is one of the best areas in the entire world to learn and pratice kitesurf/windsurf due to the constant wind and shallow water. When the is wind is not around here you can go for other activities like catamarans, SUP, kayak, wakeboard and if you are lucky, you can get to swim with a dolphin!
The Dragon Island is the sacred place around. Its beauty is evident since the first moment you look at it.
A big dune of sand and rocks compose this island which the wind gave the shape of a Dragon when seen from the side. The hotel provides boat trips to the Island or, if you have the energy for it, go for a walk/swim to the island with low tide. Don't be afraid of climbing to the spot and get amazed with the panoramic view over there.
Situated 200m east of the Dragon Camp, once you are there you will understand better than ever why everybody calls it "the speed spot".
Are you a kitesurfer or windsurfer spending a lot of time looking for flat spots to travel? Stop searching, you hit the jackpot! With an extension of about 2km and only on low tide, a mini dune of 40cm is created which provides the perfect flat and deep water for speed, high jumps and fast trick improvements with pure offshore wind.
This spot is for experienced riders only because it has no security from the sport center and the wind is pure offshore. You can go there walking 15min on the sand or just hire our tractor at the center to take you and pick you up.
The White Dune, "Dune Blanche" or "Duna Blanca" is the most famous attraction to visit in Dakhla peninsula. This is a very big dune of pure white sand that goes into the lagoon and creates its very own small lagoon inside.
Here you can take very nice pictures, roll down the dune and do kitesurfing stunts around the dune. Either you go by boat or 4x4, on the way back you can also go to the oyster farm and taste the famous Dakhla Oysters along with some wine.
Almost every kitesurfer that comes to the hotel does the known downwind to the white dune that takes about 3h riding plus transport. We strongly recommend it!
Who doesn't like an extra emotion and that feeling that you never surf the same wave twice and you always want more? Well, when you arrive at Dakhla Attitude we can arrange transport to the 2 best wave spots around "Pointe de l'Or" and "Oum Labouir". Whether is windy or glassy, you will certainly have fun surfing the waves of the desert only with no crowds, only your friends.
Warning: Kitesurf or Windsurf at the wave spots is for experienced riders only. De advised!
You will not have any assistance at the wave spots as Dakhla Attitude provides only the transport
The most near wave spot from Dakhla Attitude is Pointe de l'Or. In about 20 minutes you can be riding waves on the Atlantic Ocean alone with your friends.
A desert sand beach with a rocky point create a beautiful small clear water bay where you may see one or two fisherman and the fun waves are all for you.
Right at the entrance of Dakhla town, going on the ocean direction, we can find the worldclass wave spot Foum Labouir, where you can take advantage of insane wave conditions. Perfect side to side offshore moderate wind, beautiful long and glassy rights breaking over the point... An awesome playground to have fun and enjoy some sessions with kite/wind wave equipment or even renting a surfboard or a SUP at our sport center.
Many Moroccan riders like Abdel Fettah and Abdel Ouahed Elabdi come to windsurf on these waves as well as international pro kitesurfers like Jesse Richman, Abel Lago and the great Mitu Monteiro that won the KPWT Wave held here in 2009.
Check the conditions at the sport center and if good, in about a 30-40 minutes drive from the hotel, one of our cars takes you there for the ride of your life.
