Laâyoune-Boujdour-Sakia El Hamra

Most of this region falls within Western Sahara, which is subject to an ongoing dispute with regard to who has jurisdiction over the region. Around 260,000 people live in the region which has El Aaiun as its capital city.

El Aaiun is easily reached via bus from major transportation hubs in the south of Morocco. Flights are also offered to the city from Casablanca, Dakhla and Agadir. The town can be explored on foot, and you can visit a variety of stores, a bird park and the tourism office. If you’re seeking solitude, there are a number of quiet beaches where you can spend the day relaxing. Also worth exploring in the region is Boujdour. This is a delightful seaside destination complete with a fishing harbor, extensive beach, and a lighthouse.

Laayoune-Boujdour-Sakia el Hamra is a quiet region, the ideal place to get away from it all and just relax.
