Desert Camp 1

A lot of camping going on once the weather changes. This is my Company camp site where we can go with our family (it's free of cost) and spend the day. A lot of games for kids (volleyball, basketball, a common room with a television and foosball and the best thing... a huge trampoline.

Also, for minimal charges, a short horse ride, donkey ride, sand buggy ride or dirt biking.

The Fish Market Restaurant




This restaurant is in the area known as Abu Halifa (lining the Beach road.) The food, although a little expensive, was extremely tasty. You get to select the fish, prawns, lobsters or crabs before your meal and then you have a choice of grilled, fried, steamed etc. The ambiance was good, the food, as I mentioned, was extremely tasty but the Fillipina girl serving us was a little grumpy. Maybe she was ill or something???!!! All in all, it was a good treat and we definitely recommend the place.
