Western Sahara Things to Do: 50 reviews and 107 photos
Laayoune lies about 22 KM inland from the coast. At the coast lies Foum el-Oued. Here you have a beach, an esplanada and soem accommodations. Foum el Oued is a nice and relaxed place for swimming, but be careful because the waves of the ocean can be a bit dangerous. And there a big difference between season and off-season, when all is closed and empty.
We reached Layoune, coming from the Dakhla road from the south. After passing Laayoune-port and Foum el-Oued the road went inland in the east direction. We drove through the sanddunes, which surround Layoune. Allthough we saw allready a lot of sanddunes during our transsahara trip, it is always spectacular again to be in the middle of it. There was hardly any sand on the road, but it looked like the road has to be cleaned from the blowing sands sometimes.
