Essaouira is a very culturally interesting place, with masses of tradition still remaining throughout the un-spoilt Morrocan charm of the town, port, and beaches.

The fascinating culture combined with the reliable strong winds make Essaouira a great kitesurf holiday destination for both kitesurfers and non kiters alike. On the water the conditions are most suitable for the more confident kitesurfer as the wind is quite strong and there are waves in a many parts of the bay. Beginner and improvers are catered for but it can be that that some afternoons are too difficult at this level.

Planet offer tailor made tours in Morocco to combine the watersports with some of the cultural sites of the country. Please see our suggest tour itineraries for some examples or speak to an expert travel advisor for a personalised itinerary.

In the middle of the western Sahara, a 2 hours flight from Casablanca, is a town called Dakhla situated on a small peninsula bordering the Atlantic coast called Rio de Oro. Stretching South from the small town is a huge lagoon that we think God must have made just for Kitesurfers, Wing Foilers and Windsurfers! It is one of the most perfect spots for these sports on the planet. This stunning lagoon with an incredible year around wind, is a true Kitesurf, Wing and Windsurf paradise.

The wind stats in this area are just astounding so you can sail the whole year in Dakhla (even in December & January, the lowest wind season, it is still 60% reliable)!! The water is perfectly flat with huge shallow areas; just perfect for beginners & improvers; simply the best spot on earth to learn to kitesurf (or Wing Foil).

In recent years the accommodation options have taken a big step up, and we can now offer some quite high standard luxury stays. With these new luxury-end properties, it is also possible to travel with a non-kiting partner or family (as long as they don’t mind the remote location). We only work with the best hand-picked accommodations in Dakhla; if it is not on our website it is because it does not meet our high standards.
