Stay at the eco-friendly windsurfing paradise of Ocean Vagabond

Found between the ocean, lagoon and desert in Morocco, miles away from civilisation, is the exotic town of Dakhla. Just a couple miles away from Dakhla town is the eco-friendly Ocean Vagabond hotel and sports centre. This is an ideal location for any level of windsurfer, from kids wanting to learn, to the very advanced!


At Dakhla, the perfectly located Ocean Vagabond beach hotel is steps away from the lagoon and offers delicious cuisine, a massage cabin, yoga sessions and a fantastic sports centre. Everyone is welcome at this exotic and friendly hotel, from groups of friends to families, couples and solo explorers.


Ideally built next to the incredible dunes and with the use of local woods, the bungalows integrate perfectly into the landscape. There are 30 bungalows that offer the perfect place to relax and unwind with beautiful views of the lagoon and a private terrace.


The hotel has been following an environmentally friendly approach since their beginning in 2010. The hotel uses local resources for most of the infrastructure construction and has created an ecosystem of 2,500 different plants and focusses daily on reducing their carbon footprint and consumption of resources. Thanks to this hard work they were awarded The Green Key eco-tourism certificate in 2013.


To get the most out of your windsurfing holiday, Ocean Vagabond offer a world-class watersports centre. The centre is located on the northeastern coast of the lagoon and has direct access to the lagoon.


This spot is the perfect place to learn to windsurf as well as to practice your freestyle and racing skills thanks to the side shore winds from the north, which make the water super-flat.

Depending on the tides there is usually a long shallow water area right in front of the centre. If waves are more your thing then you will be happy to find a fantastic wave spot within a five-minute drive to the other side of the peninsula.


Here in this part of Dakhla, the wind blows constantly throughout the whole year. With more than 320 days a year blowing at least 12 knots, this is an incredible windsurf destination.

The centre is equipped with the latest and greatest Fanatic equipment, which includes super lightweight sails for adults, and special children’s equipment.


Beginners are trained as far as possible in shallow water so you can expect a great learning environment. Everything from beach starts to freestyle moves can be learned through instruction by the centre’s professional team.

For the already avid windsurfer, the centre is happy to announce that as of spring 2018, windfoil rental and private or semi-private lessons will be offered!


Dakhla is a perfect destination for a windsurf holiday throughout the year! Contact us to help plan your holiday in 2018!
