There is nothing enticing about that place. Beach is nice but there are no restaurants or even public toilets there. There are 2 guys who can take you for a boat trip to surrounding beaches from there but you are much better to look for boats to hire in the nearby Marina Bandar Al Rowdha.

We might be lucky to get a glimpse of Sunset on one corner and moon on the other. You might be lucky to catch both if in a single... More

I visit this beach with friends, was fun but nothing special. Sharp stones in sea. We enjoyed the sun at least. You can rent the boat and move to privat beach.

We spent a day here strolling along the entire length stopping for coffee midway, sitting on the beach and swimming. The beach is empty apart from a few walkers. There are NO sun beds at all which is great and only a few people sitting on the beach on its long 7k stretch

My review is about getting to this place. I unfortunately could not make it to this beach as it's very far from where I was staying in Alkhuwair (city seasons hotel) about a 30 minute drive. There's no public transportation and one can only get there by car. Unless you rented s car than you'll pay 10-15 rials each way.... More
