The beach is a fabulous setting for an afternoon walk... you can wander for a couple of hours if you wish. Bring an EXTRA jumper/jacket because EVEN if it is a warm sunny day out the stiff breeze off the sea can be pretty severe! Also my advice (unless you are after unwelcome attention, information, goods, products, offers, etc) is... More

Right now so many working along the way of the beach, I can imagine that when they finish the street along the sea can be nice and modern, but now is just unhappy

It's a lovely walk along the beach. Give yourself at least an hour each way. There are peanut hawkers and camel rides along the beach, but they will easily accept a quick "no".

A large beach on the Atlantic Coast .. The water is not really for bathing or swimming .. it's not so warm as the mediteranéen sea. But for a walk it's good enough.. There is a few bars on the beach but a lot of wind ..

take a walk along to where camels and horses are, ignore the guides, watch the many football games at low tide, have a drink at one of the beachside bars, listen to some live music, enjoy it!

A wide expanse of sand, with a fairly high tidal range, so it was really big when the tide was well out. The closer to the town (and port) you are, the more rubbish you find, which is disappointing. As you get further away, it gets a lot cleaner. There seems to be decent surf there all the time. Watch... More

Went on long walks when the tide is out to a very secluded part of the beach. Very popular for football!

Although we were only here a short time we love the vastness and cleanliness of the beach. We were there as a couple but saw that the beach area was also suitable for families.
