Fodor's Review

This beach is named for an eccentric Middle Eastern emir who vacationed here and built a house near this stretch of sand. High waves make this beach popular with surfers but somewhat dangerous for swimmers. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; walking.
