Sandboarding in Merzouga Desert

Sandboarding, also known as dune surfing, has long been a favorite hobby and the best sport among Moroccan nomads and Merzouga desert youngsters.
The adults will recall that they utilized a variety of homemade materials to practice sandboarding at Merzouga when they were younger.

On our Morocco Tour to the Desert, sandboarding in Morocco’s Great Merzouga Desert Dunes is a fantastic opportunity to mix adventure and exploration. Even while camel rides are the desert’s most famous attraction, it has recently emerged as a preferred location for numerous sporting competitions that encourage you to indulge in your interests and adventures. Skating can also be done on sand dunes, despite the misconception that it can only be done on ice and snow. Sandboarding, also known as sand surfing, has become a wonderful sport for both novices and experts in the boarding world.

At the dunes of Erg Chebbi, Morocco, travelers enjoy the sport of sandboarding in Merzouga. This activity draws lovers eager to travel to the desert from all over the world. Additionally, because there is absolutely no chance of getting hurt, it is not a risky sport.

Sandboarding is best to be done in some specific situations and at particular times, though. As an illustration, it is preferable to sandboard after a rainy day since the solidified sand will make for a better slide down. Additionally, because the sand can get quite hot at times, especially in the summer, it is safer to do it early in the morning or late at night.

Although there are several desert regions in Morocco, only one stands out for sandboarding, Merzouga; a small village in southeastern Morocco that is known for its proximity to Erg Chebbi and is a popular destination for tourists to practice sandboarding. It has been described as “a desert theme park” and the Erg Chebbi as “a wonderland of sand

Sandboarding in Merzouga Desert

In order to enjoy the sandboarding activity, we will pick you up by camel and take you to the deep dunes at the Erg-Chebbi after lunch in your hotel or riad in Merzouga.

To ensure that you can play the game correctly and securely, we’ll give you access to the sky and free time to do all the possible sandboarding actions. Remember that the higher you climb, the better the ride down and the faster your board will take you.
