Things to do


One of the great things about Oualidia are the opportunities for fun and recreation. Oualidia has an international reputation for surfing and watersports. The shallow lagoon is ideal for swimming: there are three beaches within easy reach of the villa (one a two-minute boat trip across the lagoon).


Birdwatcher? Oualidia is on a migration route and attracts waders and shore birds year-round.


If you're a keen walker you can walk for miles along the clifftops or head off to the north end of the lagoon where the silence is broken only by the cries of curlews and the distant crash of surf.


You can make great excursions to nearby towns and attractions. If all else fails there's table tennis, zip-wire and dozens of games, books and DVDs at the house!






We can arrange hire of kayaks, windsurfers and pedalos

Why not try surfing? We use a qualified instructor who speaks English and will teach ages 8 and up

Birdwatching: among Oualidia's visitors are Eleanora's falcons, Audouin's gulls, Kentish plovers, black-winged stilts, flamingos and spoonbills (above)
