Port Ghalib looks a lovely place to spend a couple of hours. Unfortunately we only passed through on our way to the sea scope and to the corona divers boat for our snorkelling trip

Only there one night as dive boat drop off and nice lively friendly feel to the place with lots of bars on the sea front and traditional shops behind, mostly selling 'Rolex' etc for ten quid! People of all ages there and really pleasant.
