Marvel as low tide reveals delicate mangrove roots thrusting up through the sand. The beach is superb for sunbathing and picnicking too. Try catching your own lunch and set up a barbecue right alongside the unadulterated waters. Al Thakhira Beach is highly appreciated by visitors seeking tranquility.

Highlights of your visit

  • Kayaking

  • Fishing

  • Mangroves

Hire a kayak and explore Al Thakhira’s waterways that flow between clusters of vibrant mangroves. These present an ideal opportunity to give kids a lesson in ecology: mangroves thrive in briny water; extreme temperatures; changing tides and high water levels. They offer environmental benefits too, by removing carbon dioxide from the air; filtering metals from the water; providing breeding areas for fish and protecting the shorelines from erosion.

There is a good chance that you will notice herons; terns; and egrets; as well as colourful flamingos standing one-legged among the mangroves.
