That is why Merzouga is one of the ideal places to admire its sunset, as well as to contemplate a magnificent starry sky. The local population is a mix of Arabs and Amazigh (Berber) people, and they are very welcoming and friendly people.

The dunes change colour depending on the time of day. It is an unforgettable experience to contemplate the beautiful sunrise or sunset over its dunes, as well as the incredible mantle of stars that closes on their nights, thanks to which in Merzouga, located in the heart of the Sahara desert, is far from urban pollution And light to which we are accustomed.
