Relaxing 4 days at Shams which provided me with peace of mind, it's a place full of hospitality warm smiles, reasonable prices and decent accommodation, breakfast by the sea in the hotel restaurant is a refreshing experiment, Shams is a place does feel like home and for sure I'll be back there in no time.
