If you wish to visit a beach which has pebbles instead of the usual sand, then, this is the place. True to its name. you will find pebbles of different shapes, sizes and colors. Nature at its best.

nothing can get as beautiful as this beach. the water is ever calm nestled between cliffs and long shorelines of pebbles. highly recommended for camping, or jus a cozy break or a fishing trip.

Lives up to its name, but a nice place to barbecue or camp near wadi Shab. Whack shah resort hotel access on to the beach. Waters clear and plenty swimming, we also saw lots of feeding turtles and an osprey which was great.
