Western Sahara - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Tarfaya

Tarfaya, a jewel along the Atlantic coast between the ocean and desert is a perennial small fishing port that faces the Canary Islands, with a history dating back to more than two and a half centuries.

With miles of white sandy beach and a still intact landscape of wild nature, the population testify to the great epochs related to their small town. Once occupied by a Scottish trader, Donald Mackenzie, who created the original settlement in the late 19th century, and building a little trading post on a rock just offshore, which he called Port Victoria was eventually taken over by the Spanish.
