Erfoud City

Erfoud (Berber languages: Arfud; Arabic: أرفود‎) is an oasis town in the Sahara Desert, in the Drâa-Tafilalet region in eastern Morocco. It is divided into several districts: Hay Salam, Hay Jdid, Hay Ziz, Hay el Bathaa, Hay Annahda, and Hay el Hamri.


Erfoud is a small town in the southeastern part of Morocco’s Sahara Desert. It was built by the French in the 1930’s as an administrative center. It is a quiet place characterized by its red buildings and gorgeous scenery. Erfoud has a successful marble industry and in recent years, many touristic accommodations such as hotels and restaurants have cropped up contribute to the local economy. However, it is mostly used for a pass-through site for travelers on their way to the famous sand dunes Merzouga or the oasis village of Rissani..
