Khor Ambado Beach, Djibouti

Beach · Nature / Park
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.
