• Al Dar Islands
  • We love living on an island … but sometimes it is good to get off it! And a boat trip is a great family day out. Al Dar Islands can arrange a trip for you, as well as snorkelling, pearl diving, dolphin watching.  It’s also a great place for just hanging out at the beach, with chalets, and beach huts. (ID needed.)

    The guys here organise Pearl Diving Tours – after a short trip by boat to the oyster beds (where you are given a basket, gloves and snorkeling gear), you will learn how to collect the oysters, then to open the shells and look for pearls.
