I never knew I suffered from winter blues until I laid on that sunbed and roasted myself for 4 hours on my first day in Dakhla, Morocco!
Yes, I know some have to google Dakhla when they hear about it, especially if you are not a kite surfer or a beach bum like me!
Dakhla is the capital of the Dakhla Wad Eddahab region in southern Morocco, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the dunes of the Moroccan Sahara.
I arrived at night. At 2 am, I only could see the well-lit boulevard as I was leaving the airport. Things changed in the morning when I saw the Lagoon. Just glorious! It is an ecological treasure with its forty-seven kilometres that seem endless. It is a heaven for migrating birds, biodiversity and adventurous kite surfers, not to forget the colonies of flamingo birds.
Dakhla is a little jewel on the ocean.
