A must visit. Awesome view, relaxing and sunset is beautiful. You can go there from the city center by tuktuk in about 15 minutes or a long ride bike. They serve fresh juices, bedouin tea and shisha.

You think you saw a good sunset before? well think again, because this one is the most exotic you will see. You will enjoy the sunset with the reflection of the sun and palms on the lake
