The Western Sahara is virtually all desert and is sparsely inhabited, and has the aridest and inhospitable land on the planet. The principal city of Laayoune, the old colonial capital, lies on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean considered the gateway to the Sahara.
With little agriculture; camels, goats, and sheep are raised, and dried fish exported to the Canary Islands. Motorable tracks abound in the country’s extremely flat terrain, but there are few paved roads. You will find easy access with regular air service between Laayoune and Al-Dakhla (formerly Villa Cisneros) and between Laayoune and Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, Nouakchott in Mauritania, and Casablanca.
