Amazing beach, amazing birds, amazing views! However you need to remember to bring a lot of water with you, as it is not always possible to buy it there.

A protected nature reserve worth the trip. We took a helicopter (Zilair) to Aride and the experience was wonderful. This island is not for regular tourists but for those interested in birds & lizards. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We loved our visit here.
