Atlantic waves are washing against the rocks and the sandy beaches. The Island of Mogador is protecting the bay and the mouth of the river Oued Ksob. North and south of the town there are endless beaches, dune forests and rocks.The coastal ramparts of the well fortified old town suffer interminably from erosion. The Green belt wall marks a well-defined limit of the city towards the dune forest and the Bohaira lagoons.
