  • It's the desert you don't expect. Basalt rocks he black with sharp edges... Dromedaries grazing, the temple of Berenice and then the stars... You have to try to believe!

  • They are 2 very special islands, surrounded by a beautiful coral reef, a real coral garden, very clear water and lots of fish. The production area of turtles (although not directly accessible) and birds are also very beautiful. A trip worth doing !
