Kitesurfing in Dakhla and everything you need to know about the kitespots around Dakhla:

Thanks to the pleasant temperatures throughout the year and the constant wind, the Dakhla lagoon is a kitesurfing paradise. And a wind probability that can easily keep up with Brazil. And almost the whole year.

For more than 5 years we are at the northern, “small” lagoon of Dakhla. Action-packed years with lots of wind, fun and more and more kiters… With Jerome, the hotelier of the Tour d’Eole, we found a charming luxury accommodation for kiters on the eastern side of the big lagoon. From now on you can improve your kite level with us in an untouched, not overcrowded kite area with side onshore wind.

With two shallow water spots right in front of the door, the Kitespot is ideal for learning kitesurfing or perfecting freestyle tricks. Since there is no other kite school in the immediate near, the kite spots offer more than enough space on the water. Of course, kite courses are also offered by certified and multilingual instructors – whether for beginners, intermediates or special courses, for example in wave kitesurfing.

The result: A perfect kite destination for beginners, intermediates, freestylers and wavekiters.

At the lagoon is the luxurious La Tour d’Eole, a unique ecolodge and kitesurf hotel. Jerome, who comes from a french hotelier family, has built a beautiful and thoughtful accommodation with his long experience. The hotel is perfectly situated in the middle of the fascinating dune landscape with its stylish and sustainable design. Consisting of 21 private, sheltered bungalows with terrace and views of the lagoon and spot. Also from the heated pool or from the sunbathing lawn you have a wonderful view of the lagoon.

The restaurant offers a refreshing and 100% organic gourmet cuisine and presents the best local products and delicious Moroccan traditions.

And should the wind turns down there are many activities to do.

Kitesurfing in Dakhla

Dakhla kite lagoon: beginners and freestyle spot

Directly at La Tour d’Eole and the Ocean Academy, you will find the kite lagoon, which will let shallow water lovers jump into the sky. The lagoon is influenced by tides, so that at high tide a “pool” forms, where you will find wonderful shallow water conditions. Depending on the tide you have a 150 – 200 meter wide standing area. The ground consists mostly of sand and only some sharp shells or stones. The constant wind comes here side onshore. So this spot offers maximum safety for beginners and best conditions for freestylers. Even in the absolute high season, when the kite camps in the north of the lagoon are full, this side of the lagoon is almost empty.

And a little tip for those who want to learn kitesurfing in Dakhla: find out on our learn kitesurfing page what you can expect in your first kitesurfing lesson.

Further informations about kitesurfing in Dakhla

White Dune: 10 km dream shallow downwind trip

A downwinder in the lagoon of the breathtaking White Dune should be done by any advanced kiter. Therefore we have included this kite session in Dakhla also directly for you in the travel price. Accompanied by your experienced kite guide you will be taken by car to the White Dune where you can kite at this dream spot. When you are ready you can go back to the Eco-Lodge via downwinder. Kitesurfers, who are not yet safe enough for this trip, can drive back with the off-road vehicle and experience a real desert feeling with an incredible panorama.

Dakhla kitesurf speedspot: for advanced

In the north of the lagoon you will find the speed spot. The wind comes offshore over an edge, so you have finest shallow water behind it.

Dakhla Kite Worldcup spot: for advanced

In the camp further north, on the same side of the lagoon, a Kite World Cup stop is held every year in March. Here you will find – besides a lot of kiters – a light choppy wave.

Point de l’OR: near Wavekite Point Break for wavekite beginners to advanced

After about 30-40 minutes driving time with the 4×4 drive you will find a wavekite spot like out of a dream. A point break with sideshore wind and – depending on tide level and swell – up to 500 m long wave. Wave kiters should keep in mind that the swell is rather small in the summer months and should be avoided from September to May. In winter (November to February) the wind yield is not more than 90%, but surfing is a great alternative. The waves can get big here (three to four meters, on some days even more), then you should already know what you are doing. The bottom of the kiteable part consists of sand, so it is safer and suitable for wave kite beginners.
