Plage Alta: between September and February, in this area, located at the end of the le Goubet gulf, it is possible to see and swim with the shark whales, in one of the most beautiful location of the coral reef.
Sable blanc: relaxing place that offers a nice white beach and a beautiful sea where snorkelling is pleasant.
Tajura : white city located on the same name gulf, ancient capital of the Afar kingdom from where the caravans used to depart to the Ethiopian highlands.
Lake Assale : this salty lake (330 gr per liter), at 153 m under the sea level, is a spectacular view with its blue water surrounded by salty white sand.
Lake Abbe : on the south part of the lake there are strange calcareus shapes, up to 50 mt high, old volcanic chimneys, some of them still active, that create an unreal lanscape. Around the chimneys, hot springs generate grasslands where the small cattles graze.
