Merzouga is a small Moroccan village near the Algerian border in the Sahara Desert. Merzouga opens onto Erg Chebbi, a vast sand dune field north of the city. To the west lies Dayet Srji, a seasonal Salt Lake that is usually dry in the summer. When it re-fills, it attracts a diverse range of migratory and desert species, including warblers, nightjars, and, rarely, flamingos.
Chegaga Dunes in M'hamid and Merzouga provide a spectacular sand sea. They reach heights of more than 250 meters. Their gold tone makes them appear attractive.
