Located on the northwest coast and in the Maghreb region of North and West Africa, Western Sahara is a disputed territory. It is partially controlled by the self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic and partially occupied by neighbouring Morocco. Kitesurfing is one of the main reasons Western Sahara attracts tourists around the year and many book flights to Western Sahara from London to enjoy kitesurfing in the Dakhla lagoon. In addition to kitesurfing, visitors enjoy Laayoune and the El Aaiún beach, as well as Tarfaya, Moroccan Berm, Semara, and Guelta Zemmour. The Hassan I Airport in Laayoune and Dakhla Airport are two main airports in Western Sahara and the best option for flights to Western Sahara from London is Royal Air Maroc.
