You can't buy happiness, but you can rent a kite. It's almost the same. In the bay of Dakhla, take advantage of the best watersports spots, but also professional advice during lessons and other courses at the Ocean Academy by La Tour d’Eole. This professional training centre was created in 2017 in collaboration with Bruna Kajiya, triple kitesurfing world champion and General Manager and Ambassador of the Ocean Academy. In addition to participating in training instructors and monitoring the quality of courses, Bruna offers clinics and intensive courses to learn to kitesurf like a champion.

The Ocean Academy is located on an outstanding kitesurfing spot. You will have access to two spots: the main freeride spot and the spot known as the “piscine” (the pool). Both offer a flat body of water. The pool is a 100% flat body of water where your feet will touch the bottom wherever you go.

La Tour d’Eole is the first establishment to be built on this much sought-after spot that is still very much untouched: it is paradise for both beginners and more demanding professionals. This is a completely safe spot with a side onshore wind.

For those who come with their own kitesurfing equipment, La Tour D'Eole provides, at additional cost, a large storage space with a padlock and access to changing rooms with hot showers.

Dakhla is a paradise for downwind kitesurfing. The White Dune is one of the most beautiful excursions on offer. When you arrive by 4x4 to the site, you will enjoy a session on a perfect spot, around a majestic white sand dune over the lagoon. Then you will enjoy a downwind trip towards the Ocean Academy. 

The Ocean Academy also offers you excursions to discover Dakhla's exceptional surf spots. Still largely undiscovered by surfers, Dakhla offers optimal waves. An advantage of Dakhla's spots is that they offer you the chance to become more advanced; they are ideal for both beginners and experts. The lagoon opposite Ocean Academy is also perfect for Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Leaving from the centre you can take long escapades, discover the beauty of Dakhla from the lagoon, and also venture off to secret beaches where you can kick back and relax.
