“Camel Riding experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We booked 3 Camels and I was worried about my arthritic back. It was a bit jerky but the views and peaceful nature of the ride outweighed the little bit of discomfort and when we arrived back, the little Moroccan man who'd led us along the beach caught me as I fell forward as the Camel sat down. Then he picked me off the seat and held me in his arms like a baby! I couldn't stop laughing as I'm quite a large woman and he small but obviously very strong!!

“Camel ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

We also took a camel ride with Mustapha. He's persuasive, but it was fun and the kids enjoyed it. His mate/cousin took loads of great photos. The walk from the point of striking the deal to getting on a camel is about 15 minutes, but the ride takes you round to a more isolated and beautiful part of the beach. We paid 600 for six of us, probably over the odds but worth it for us.

“Amazing for kite surfing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is the windiest beach I've ever been to. Vast, and perfect for riding waves, but not the place for settling down for an afternoon of sun and origami.

“Long windy beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

An ideal beach for kite surfing. Sea was quite murky with silt. Lovely views across the bay and out to island with some old ruins in evidence.
