Dakhla is known as the wind paradise on earth with over 300 days of wind per year. Wind normally blows from the north, this means side on shore on the Dragon Beach. Sometimes the wind blows from the northeast which ends up being onshore to the Dragon Beach. The wind gives the spot a completely new perspective as long rides from the Dragon Island till the end of the lagoon can be done.
