6 reasons to dream of Dakhla

With December holidays fast approaching, we are dreaming of a windsurf holiday to Dakhla. With its startling desert scenery, a flat-water lagoon that stretches for miles, reliable wind and sunny weather, there are many reasons why we think festive season is best spent with Moroccan sand between our toes. Here are just 6 reasons why you too should be dreaming of Dakhla:

1. The world’s best windsurfing conditions

When it comes to reliable wind conditions coupled with an exciting windsurfing location, Dakhla does not disappoint. With amazing wind stats that offer 320 windy days a year, Dakhla is reliable all year round, including during the festive season when you really need to escape the cold in the UK! 


2. Dakhla is the perfect place to learn to windsurf

The lagoon at Dakhla offers perfectly flat water with huge shallow expanses that are just perfect for beginners and improvers. Dakhla is simply the best spot in the world to learn to windsurf.

3. Great accommodation for the entire family

Planet is excited to work with the new Dakhla Club hotel which offers a luxurious experience second to none. This all-inclusive hotel is perfect for those travelling with partners or families who don’t windsurf and if you book before the end of September 2017 you can even bring the kids along free of charge!


4. Charming culture and magnificent scenery

Located in the middle of the western Sahara, just 1,500km from Casablanca, Dakhla is located on a small but stunning peninsula of the Atlantic coast. Its gorgeous blue lagoon is surrounded by breathtaking desert scenery and the surrounding area is easily explored via a number of excursions.


5. Conditions to suit every skill level

With a vast flat-water lagoon that stretches from the doorstep of your accommodation as well as 4 fantastic wave spots that can be easily accessed within 30 minutes, Dakhla is perfect for all levels of windsurfer. 


6. An amazing place to get away from it all

If you are looking for that perfect place where you can really get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and spend some real down time simply relaxing then Dakhla is the spot! When you are not out on the water, hit the beach with a good book or enjoy making new friends in one of the chilled beach bars on the lagoon.
