Unique Qualities: Erg Chebbi Dunes are located in Moroccan south west, right next to the villages of Merzouga, Hassilabied and Khamlyia, 50km from Erfoud. Around the dunes settle 3 Berber villages that still remain with true Sahara Berber traditions from South Morocco. "The Blue Men" still exist here in Sahara. All these villages are build in clay construction, the typical construction of the region, a mix of mud, clay and wheat straws.

The dunes of Erg Chebbi constitute a magic destination, full with magnetism and mystery, with easy access for all travellers. If you want to visit Morocco, this jewel of the Sahara is a place is not to be missed under no pretext.

Erg Chebbi is a natural wonder with unique views where its thin orange sand dunes pop up from the black volcanic cobalt desert of the great Hamada du Ghir. Approaching these dunes is like arriving to a different planet where you think that what you're approaching is not real. Indeed this Nature Wonder is immense and your dreams about Sahara will here come true.

Villages of Merzouga, Hassilabied and Khamliya

Around the dunes settle 3 Berber villages that still remain with true Sahara Berber traditions from South Morocco. "The Blue Men" still exist here in Sahara. All these villages are build in clay construction, the typical construction of the region, a mix of mud, clay and wheat straws.

Merzouga village is located right in front of the big dune of Erg Chebbi and its green oasis contrast with the orange sand from the dunes. Today, Merzouga is the most developed village around the dunes.

Khamliya also known as « village des hommes noirs » its a very interesting settlement as its inhabitants are black-African descendants that settled here when caravans from sub-Sahara still crossed the dunes for business proposes. Every year there's a big party where people gather to play drums and sing, reminding Gwana and west African traditions.

Hassilabied is located 4km of Merzouga and its nowadays a residential village for nomad people that through time settled along the dunes.
