+ NEW in 2017: exclusive spa and Moroccan hammam
+ Stunning Kite Villa Camp exclusively for Kiteworldwide 
+ Diverse, shallow flat water spot in front of the camp and wave spots around the corner
+ Perfect wind conditions from March to October, good wind from November to February
+ VDWS licensed kite center  under KiteWorldWide management 
+ New flight times mean no overnight stopover

Dakhla for many is the definition of perfect kitesurfing conditions, it’s the classic loaction. Bosting One of the largest kitesurf lagoons in the world, and if that was not enough there is a perfect wave spots just across the 40 km long peninsula. On top of that, the wind probability can match the steady and constant wind you thought only to be in Brazil. Dakla has a wind statistic of over 300 kiteable days a year, which is just epic!

The outcome: A complete kite destination for beginners, intermediates, freestylers and wave kiters.

However, until now, another side of this golden coin existed. Basic camps with little or no comfort as well as crowded kite centres. This has kept most from visiting Western Sahara, the land with an endless coastal line.

With excitement we received the message from our long-time partner in Essaouira that they had found a solution to the known disadvantages of the destination Dakhla. A new, comfortable kite accommodation with six mini villas, all of them facing the spot, a pool on the terrace and an astonishing boutique hotel design, which gives the accommodations and common rooms a fresh flair and atmosphere. And, all this on one off the best spots in the lagoon.

Furthermore there are also new flight times so no overnight stop needed to get there anymore! Hence, you’ll reach the wind paradise Dakhla in only 6-8 hours (From Europe).

Kitesurfing in Dakhla

Dakhla kite lagoon: Beginner and freestyle spot

Directly at the KiteWorldWide Villa Camp you will find the kite lagoon, which makes flat-water fans hearts’ beat two times faster and enables beginners to quickly ride those first metres with a kiteboard. The spot is influenced by the tides, yet the low tide still leaves the lagoon with sufficient water and space for everyone. Depending on the tide you will have a 150m to 300m wide shallow water area just in front of the KiteWorldWide centre. This is where 90 % of you will spend most of the time. The ground is sandy without any disturbing rocks or corals, the wind blows constantly with a side-shore from the left direction. Thus, this spot offers the maximum of safety for beginners and ideal conditions for freestylers. Even during the main high season, when the mass kite camps located about 1,5-2km away on the other side of the lagoon are full, you will always find enough space here.

For more information on the many other kitesurfing spots in Dakhla, have a look at the section “further kitesurfing info’s”.

Accommodation directly at the kitesurf spot

KiteWorldWide Villa Camp Dakhla

Forget everything you’ve ever heard about the spartan camps in Dakhla. The brand new KiteWorldWide Villa Camp offers you comfort and luxury. Each bungalow looks like a small private villa

Kite WorldWide Villa Camp Pool Area/Spa/Dining Room

KiteWorldWide Villa Camp – Villa

KiteWorldWide Villa Camp – Riad Room

Facilities

The heart of the Villa Camp is the open restaurant with its 180 degree, panoramic view of the spot, though a large glass wall. Here, all guests gather around a great wooden table for breakfast, lunch and dinner or simply to relax in the lounge area.

Just next door you’ll find the kitesurfing school.

Mini Villas

The six mini villas are lined up just next to each other. Thanks to fascinating architecture all bedrooms and terraces offer you a view to the lagoon without having your privacy disturbed.

The mini villas consist of a very ample bedroom, which, based on request, can be equipped with different beds; a double bed with a comfortable 160cm wide mattress, an additional large single bed for triple occupancy or two single beds to create a twin room. A writing desk with cupboards and bedside tables makes your bedroom complete.

In the back part of the villas you will find a spacious shower and a second room with the WC.

Behind this is a dressing room with two separate sinks and trays.
The absolute highlight is the additional, roofless outside bathing area with a large bathtub and a rainforest shower.

NEW in 2017: Exclusive Spa & original Moroccan Hammam

A traditional and Moroccan style ‘bath’ is called Hammam. It’s purpose is to clean the body on a daily basis. The term Hammam was used mainly in earlier decades when there was no easy access to water. Nowadays it refers more to ‘Spa’ or ‘Wellness’.

If you want to relax your exhausted muscles after a long kite session in the lagoon, we have got something very special for you in this coming season: our own Hammam & Spa which is located directly next to the pool of the Villa Camps in Dakhla.

Massages, Beauty Treatments, cozy light, comfortable warmth and simulative odors will make you forget the stress of everyday life.

Riad

Besides the mini villas, we have built a new Riad for you. A Riad is a small townhouse built mainly for wealthy families. We used this construction type and converted it into a hotel. Here you will stay with Kitesurfers from all over the world, creating a very special atmosphere. It has been decorated with lots of love and with a Moroccan feel and charm, from the smoothly plastered sand colored walls and the warm lighting .

It is a building consisting of one floor with 6 rooms built around a courtyard.Each room has its own ensuite bathroom. They are situated behind a partition wall with a spacious shower.

The rooms are smaller than the mini villas, but still with ample space for you and your belongings.

In the middle of the Riad you will find a big open court with a lot of plants, where you can relax and recuperate after a day on the water.  This is a great value alternative to the mini villas

Spots

Dakhla kite lagoon: Beginner and freestyle spot

Directly at the KiteWorldWide Villa Camp you will find the kite lagoon, which surely makes flat-water fans hearts’ beat two times faster and enable beginners quickly to ride those first metres with a kiteboard. The spot is influenced by the tides, yet the low tide still leaves the lagoon with sufficient water and space for everyone.
Depending on the tidal level you will have a 150m to 300m wide shallow water area just in front of the KiteWorldWide centre. This is where 90 % of you will spend most of the time. The ground is sandy without any disturbing rocks or corals and the wind blows constantly and side-shore from the left. Thus, this spot offers the maximum of safety for beginners and ideal conditions for freestylers. Even during the main high season, when the mass kite camps located about 1,5-2km away on the other side of the lagoon are full, you will always find enough space here.

White Dune: a 10 km dream flat-water downwind trip

Every advanced kitesurfer should experience the unique downwind tour through the lagoon to the breathtaking ‘White Dune’. That’s why we have included this Dakhla kite excursion in your travel price. Your experienced kite guide will accompany you as you pass the Worldcup spot and the speed spot on the way to the White Dune where a shuttle will pick you up. If you don’t have the level for a downwinder you can enjoy the ride to the dune with a 4×4 drive through this amazing desert panorama.

Dakhla kitesurf speedspot: only for advanced

Behind the dune on the other side of the lagoon you will discover this legendary speed spot. Here the wind blows off-shore and has miraculous flat-water conditions. The speed spot is easily accessible for advanced kiters just by a short downwinder from the centre.

Dakhla kite Worldcup spot: for advanced

Once a year in March one of the camps at the opposite side of the lagoon hosts the Dakhla Kite Worldcup Tour Stop. Here you will find loads of other kitesurfers as well as slightly choppy conditions. We recommend to watch the ‘spectacle’ from a distance, preferably on a downwinder to the speed spot or the White Dune. As you must be able to ride upwind in order to come back, this is not a spot for beginners.

Dakhla City wavespot Oum Lamboiur: For advanced wave kitesurfers

You reach this fantastic wave spot within a 20 min drive. You should mind the tide forecast, as the northern part of the bay is quite rocky, which at low tide can become an issue. Sheltered by the point,. The waves peel in completely perfect and glassy.

Pointe de l’Or: A nearby wavekite point break for wavekite beginners to experts

It won’t even take you 10 minutes with the four-wheel drive drive to get to this wavekite spot, and we promise, it will take your breath away. A point break with side-shore wind. And, depending on the tide and swell, an up to 500m long wave rolling endlessly through this clear water bay. The waves are rather small in the summer months, so we advise wave kiters to pick a travel period between September and May. However, during the winter months from November to February, you will no longer have a 90% wind yield, but surfing offers a highly appreciated alternative (already included as an alternative program in your travel price). The waves here can get fairly big (three to four metres, some days even more), hence you should definitely know your limit. The kite-able part of the bay offers a sandy ground and safe conditions for wavekite beginners
