Boujdour was originally a fishing village built around the lighthouse. In 1976, this city began to acquire an urban character, supported by population growth and its new port.
Emerging from the desert, Boujdour has become the capital of the province. It has benefited from the "Al Aouda" and "Al Wahda" programs.
The state’s efforts in favour of this province are also directed towards the creation of fishing villages.
Additionally, as early as 1976, a seawater desalination unit was installed there and research led to the discovery of groundwater in the vicinity of the city.
This city has an asset: the corniche. It is located within the city and runs along the coast.
It is one of the most beautiful sites in the Laayoune-Boujdour region. The corniche already in place is a functional space.
However, the strategic reserved area intended for tourism investments is an undeveloped area covering an area of 80 ha.
It is covered by the development plan for the city of Boujdour. It is retained as a land reserve intended to receive tourist and entertainment activities, the realisation of which can only be done within the framework of a general and integrated project.
A sectoral development project has already been launched for the promenade.
Boujdour is a city in the Sahara, under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco, near Cape Boujdour. It has a population of 50,000.
It is bordered by: the provinces of Laayoune and Es Semara to the north, Mauritania to the east, the province of Oued Ed-Dahab to the south and by the Atlantic Ocean to the west.
Boujdour has an admirable tourist asset in the region which are its beaches several kilometres long attracting many tourists. That’s not to forget its famous corniche, located in the city and which runs along the coast. It is one of the most beautiful sites in the Laayoune-Boujdour region.
The lighthouse of Boujdour is an historical monument of great value and a living memory of the population of Boujdour, built in 1976 after the recovery of the southern provinces in 1975.
