For centuries, people lived as self-sufficient farmers from agriculture, livestock farming and fishing, which is today the most important source of income. Tourism also plays a certain role, as the east is a 6-kilometer-long sandy beach, which is visited on the weekends by day-trippers from Nador and Oujda.
