Merzouga is a small town located on the south-eastern part of Morocco, 50 kilometers from the Algerian border. The town is known for its close proximity to Erg Chebbi, a Saharan erg making it become the preferred tourist destination in the world. This small town is also known to have the largest natural underground body of water in Morocco.

The reason why you should choose Merzouga town is to have the ultimate experience of sand boarding in the great Sahara Desert. Sandboarding is a board sport that involves riding across or along sand dunes while standing on a board with both feet. The sand is usually soft and warm and quite manageable even for the first-timers. To have the best experience, the only equipment required is a sand board.

If you are a sandboarding beginner, you first ride on the sand may feed a bit awkward at first but with a little practice, you can easily ease up to it. The hard part is learning to control yourself on the board because the board tends to move quickly over the sand. Expect to fall down several times but there is no need to worry because the sand is soft and won’t hurt as much. Some people have compared sand boarding to ice skiing and have confirmed that sandboarding is much easier and so much fun. The proper work outcomes in when you have to carry your board right on top of the dunes after each ride. The board is not normally heavy, which is not a big deal to carry it but the walking uphill in the sand usually becomes the hardest part.
