Oued Eddahab Bay
|Baie d’Oued Eddahab|
Designated as a RAMSAR site in 2003, the Oued Eddahab Bay is an exceptional site of great biological and ecological interest because of its rich biodiversity, natural environment and its incomparable location.
It is a large, elongated Saharan marine bay (37 km x 13.5 km) dug within a desert plateau and partially open to the ocean. Covering an area of 40,000 ha, it is separated along its entire length by a dune.
Unique in North Africa, it is both a migratory stopover and wintering area for thousands of nesting waterfowl.
