From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

El Aaiun is city in northern Western Sahara. It is the capital and has a population approaching 200,000.


Get in

Bus services connect El Aaiún to major transport hubs in southern Morocco, particularly Inezgane. Road N1 from southern Morocco to El Aaiún is in good condition, checkposts are frequent. Royal Air Maroc flies into El Aaiún from Casablanca, Agadir and Dakhla.

Get around

El Aaiún's central sights can easily be explored on foot. Public transport is virtually non-existent. Grand Taxi services connect to El Aaiún port, El Aaiún plage and places further afield.


El Aaiún is in itself a lot less than spectacular. The main roads are lined by shops selling indescript moroccan goods, the bird park seems to be closed forever and the adjoining tourism office is very well staffed but doesn't seem to have any ideas on how to spend your time either. American ex-pat Elly Bergeron organises desert trips and runs Oasis Lemsid just outside El Aaiún: ().
