Khor Ambado Beach, Djibouti

#2 of 6 in Parks in Djibouti
Watch green crabs and look for seashells at Khor Ambado Beach, a long stretch of brown sand gently sloping into the water. Sheltered in a small cove just past a French military base, the family-friendly beach includes shaded beach chairs and tables. Clear waters and a diverse marine life provide good snorkeling, and you can safely swim in the calm sea. During low tide, wade through the water to examine a shipwreck lying in the shallows. There are few eateries available, but you need to tell them in advance that you'll be using their service.

  • To change the monotony of the capital, very good place to spend a day, by the seaside. Several paillottes allow to eat on the spot. Compulsory 4x4 vehicle.

  • The beach is paradise, very comprehensive and excellent for snorkeling, but the way to get is a real adventure, imposilble get if it isn't in a good off-road or by sea.
