Boujdour is a town in the Sahara, under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco, near Cape Boujdour. It has a population of 50,000 inhabitants.

It is bordered by: the provinces of Laâyoune and Es Semara to the north, Mauritania to the east, the province of Oued Ed-Dahab to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

Boujdour has an admirable tourist asset in the region, its beaches of several kilometres long attract many tourists. Without forgetting its famous cornice, located in the city and which skirts the coast. It is one of the most beautiful sites in the region Laâyoune - Boujdour.

Boujdour Far Away built on the Atlantic coast in the 50s of the last century, is the lighthouse of Boujdour and constitutes a historical monument of great value and a living memory of the population of Boujdour, created in 1976 after the recovery of the southern provinces in 1975.

Boujdour was originally a fishing village built around the lighthouse. Since 1976, this city has started to assert an urban character, based on a demographic growth and on its new port.

Emerging from the desert, Boujdour has become the capital of the province. 

The State's efforts in favour of this province are also directed towards the construction of fishing villages.

In addition, as early as 1976, a seawater desalination unit was installed there and research led to the discovery of underground water in the vicinity of the town.

This city has an asset: the cornice. This is located within the city and runs along the coast. 

However, the strategic reserve area for tourist investments is an unallocated tourist zone covering an area of 80 ha.

It is covered by the development plan of the city of Boujdour. It is retained as a land reserve intended to receive tourist and entertainment activities, which can only be carried out within the framework of a global and integrated project.

A sectoral development project has already been launched for this cornice.
