This cool beach in Tadjoura Bay, ideal for swimming and snorkeling, is a respite from the oppressive heat.

This beach was an hour drive from the hotel and it was a hot day and the waves from the water was blinding me but we had a great time.

All the times I visited this local place the sea food was fresh and good, but this is only a small restaurant on the beach.

Absolutely wonderfull place, but the access is really terrible, only for 4x4 vehicles. The facilities are very limited, but enough considering the location. The best choice for beach near Djibouti

Myself and two coworkers decided to take a nice cruise and explore some of the local sites. We ended up here and got a chance to explore, the beach is basically a beach.

I visited this beach several times in 2011-2012 and always had a great time. The snorkeling (depending on water clarity/tide) was fantastic and you were usually able to see an array of sea life (clown fish, barracuda, coral, octopus, eels, crabs). However, as reviews have...More
