Before the first tourists, many of the Swedish, discovered Fajara Beach in the mid 60’s its long, flat, yellow sand was mostly visited by fishermen. The whole town is sandy, vegetation is green, but not on the ground, palms and trees thrive but there’s no grass, not even on the golf course. Wealthy locals and dignitaries have moved in as well and the hotels and ‘resorts’ sprang up on cue.
