Marzouga's natural cure

In addition, it is a place of natural and ecological cure; people who suffer from chronic rheumatism and neuromuscular illness are buried under the hot sand and dry climate for almost 10 minutes. After this period of time, the patients leave the sand and then take a rest in camp to drink a cup of tea with medicinal plans_ this kind of therapy is entirely done by the experienced curists and takes place in the summer in particular. Besides, people in Merzouga are very kind, generous, and respectful. Thus, the place is highly safe and secure. Also, there are a few shops in Merzouga where you can shop for traditional handmade.
