Deep South

The would-be capital of Western Sahara, Laâyoune is an anomaly of action and urban life in the increasingly barren far south of the country. An extensive development programme has produced a city unrivalled south of Agadir and, attracted by all the activity, a population from elsewhere in Morocco has moved in on Laâyoune. Beyond, there is sand and the sea. Inland, inhospitable Smara has some historic interest, while on the coast, Dakhla is known for its fishing, and the wild Bay of Cintra has turtles and rare monk seals. Beyond that there is very little until you reach the Mauritanian border.
