Had a beautiful 10km walk on this beautiful Sandy Beach. Great for running or cycling too! Also available we're camel rides, horse rides, or ATVs. Surprised that beachfront hotels are not available. Hopefully coming soon!

Beach was nice even if a bit windy. It is a bit disappointing to be interrupted every 5 steps by a local who wants to sell you something.
