Kite surfing in Morocco
Kite surfing is a water sport that while using a surfboard you are towed by a kite and propelled by the wind. Morocco is the perfect coast for wind sports, and cities such as Essaouira and Dakhla further south provide the perfect environment to practice kite surfing in Morocco. Essaouira and Dakhla are often called the Moroccan Wind Cities. If you want to practice kite surfing in Morocco, try to divide your holidays time between Essaouira and in Dakhla deep south in Morocco close to the Mauritanian border.
