|Camel rides on Sable Blanc (The Deli in the background)
Continuing on the theme of "Djibouti is actually a beautiful place," today I'll feature Sable Blanc (a.k.a. White Sands), a beach in the Gulf of Tadjourah not far from the town of Tadjourah. To get there you can do the aprox. 4 hour drive from Djibouti OR take the ferry to Tadjourah and then catch a cab OR go by boat. We picked option three and had a wonderful trip over on the beautiful Deli, a ship owned and managed by Dolphin Excursions.
Sable Blanc boasts a beautiful uncrowded beach, a rustic but clean 'resort' for overnights and fantastic coral reefs for snorkeling and scuba. I still haven't bought myself a waterproof camera to show you the underwater beauty of Sable Blanc, but fortunately these folks have: Scuba Steve Goes to Djibouti, Snorkeling photo slideshow of Sable Blanc
