Best Kite Surfing Season


Why You'll Love Kitesurfing In Dakhla!

  • A Planet favourite! A unique yet perfect multi level spot with 70-80% year round wind reliability
  • Access to a vast flat water lagoon from your accommodation as well as 4 wave spots with 30 minutes
  • A great range of room choices from shared chalets to superior VIP luxury rooms with all mod cons

Dakhla Kitesurfing Holidays Overview

In the middle of the western Sahara, 1500 km away from Casablanca, is a town called Dakhla situated on a small peninsula of the Atlantic coast called Rio de Oro. At 30km from the city and 10km from the sea, you find a wonderful blue lagoon with an incredible wind statistic….a true Kitesurf 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.




Dakhla has recently also become a very ‘trendy’ location for the more affluent Moroccans to come for a few days to experience the wildness and beauty that this area has to offer. Mostly these visitors come for just a few days to take in the tranquillity of the area, go on boat excursions, surf at the wave spot and perhaps have a few kitesurf lessons.

Activities In Dakhla

One the rare occasions that there is no wind in Dakhla there is a brilliant surf place around 20 minute Journey away; a ideal place to try SUP or regular surfing.

However, this is a remote place so after a long time on the water the down time is mostly relaxing with a novel or your lap top (WiFi on site) or making new friends.

See What Our Clients Say

Service rating : Planet Kitesurf was very organised and had addressed every detail!

I had attended a Foiling Clinic with Progression in Dakhla which was excellent! My progression on the foil during the course of the week was surprising and very rewarding - all because of the clinic! The clinic had also been arranged through Planet Kitesurf.
Product : Fantastic kiting location. Totally dedicated to the keen kiter!! Perfect for myself (but not necessarily the place for a kiter looking for other holiday activities!!)

Accommodation very nice (simple but clean and perfect for its purpose). Food excellent. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Rescue service really good (as long as one is kiting within the rescue zone!)

It would be even better if there was a direct flight! Changing in Casablanca makes for a long day of travelling - especially outbound where one arrives in the middle of the night.
