After 4 days of busy country hopping- Doha, Amman, Jerusalem, Petra- the kids just wanted to do what kids always want: swim and build sand castles.

Its a beautiful beach but bring water shoes as there are many rocks in the water. It did not have hardly any people there when we went and only locals.

Sunday afternoon and empty beach. Untidy and bare beach. Snorkeling to tank and Japanese garden is quite fun but not marvelous.
