Goulimime streets

Goulimine is situated at the edge of the Sahara. this is where the blue men, the nomads and sedentary populations used to meet. However, you have to watch out for theatrical cons, where the locals bring people out to tents to see the "blue men" in tents outside of town. The landscapes surrounding the area are spectacularly bleak, but you are far from the Saharan dunes. For a better feel of desert life, you could head for Merzouga. However, if you do decide to come, make sure it's on a Saturday, when the people from the region come to the city for market day. This is your chance to meet real nomads, in blue garments. In earlier days the dye in their clothes would tint their skin, hence the name Blue Men. If you could plan your trip to coincide with the region’s moussem (in June), you will see crowds of Tuareg Blue Men.

Goulimine is also a good base to go to nearby Sidi Ifni. Sidi Ifni was a small Spanish enclave until the sixties, and still has a very Spanish colonial feel to it.
