Bureh Beach is a beautiful sandy beach strewn with volcanic rocks and fringed by the mountains of the Western Area National Park. During the week we saw only a few people each day, on the weekends it gets more busy.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Lush green mountains taper into white sandy beaches and tropical water. Good surf, good food, not crowded at all. Love it!

Australeone or the surf club if you like the company of a young crowd without much comfort (simple huts, tents), Lumthubul Gardens for privacy (self-contained bungalows). All these are directly on the beach.
