Secret rarely visited unspoilt beaches, flocks of flamingos, turtles everywhere, a huge and important colony of Socotran Cormorants are all laid out on a plate for the kayaker to find.

    Hi! Thanks for sharing. What are the directions? Were can I find a kayak to rent in UAQ? Is it safe to just move towards islands from town (considering speed boats and all…)?

      I’ve launched from a number of locations in the area including next to the fish market in town, the public beach at the RAK end and the water tank location. I havent seen a problem with fast moving boats at any time but its always worth keeping an eye open
