Sidi Ali el-Mekki beach is just along the coastline from Raf Raf, which is also known for clean white sand and clear waters. There aren’t many houses around, just the very shallow lagoon connected to the sea by a small channel – which is why this place used to be so popular with pirates and naval men. Now that the lagoon is all but filled with sand the tiny town has gone back to being a fishing village – less dramatic, but no less picturesque and better for visitors looking for a clean quite bit of sand to relax on.

There aren’t even any hotels around, just a café near the parking lot, but if you bring your tent you can camp by the beach like the locals.

it was awsome

we had so much fun! we got to go sailling, and when ever you want to relax its easy all you have to do is sit down where ever and relax and nobody will bother you. some dislikes was that ther is no hotels close so you have to bring a tent if you want to and thats what i did. it wasnt so bad it was quiet but if your on your hnnymoon like i was and you want to have sex you cant really becuase there are alot of people who set up tents and stay over night so you want to set up a tent around 5:00 if you want to get a spot right beside the beach
