Plage Blanche is an other-worldly spot in the heart of an ecological park on the edge of the Sahara Desert. You will find a 40 kilometer (25 mile) expanse of white sands with very few signs of being touched by human existence. Located 200 miles south of Agadir, it is something of a journey to get there and will require a 4x4 vehicle. The trip goes through twists and turns, and you will go right through giant Saharan sand dunes, alongside huge cliffs, past lush oasis, and by old kasbah ruins.
When you arrive at Plage Blanche, you will know you have truyly left the world behind, with the odd fishing hut here and there, sand that goes on forever, and breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean. It is part of a 250 square kilometer park. You won’t find any hotels, restaurants, or camel rides here, just the dunes, sand, and ocean, oh, and very probably some solitude.
Most visitors bring their tents, and they stay on the sandy beach. Being on the edge of the desert here is very little rainfall, and many camp out under the stars. When you go to Plage Blanche, you will be alone in a remote location, so be prepared to spend time with yourself and your fellow travelers away from the modern world.
