Few tourists know about Djibouti, a small country in northeastern Africa. There are many opportunities for a unique vacation in this land of bizarre landscapes, unusual vegetation, and wild beaches. In addition to hiking on the lava plateaus, there's sand surfing, scuba diving or snorkeling, and fishing in the Gulf of Aden.
A Small Country's Appeal
In spite of the fact that Djibouti was not discovered very long ago, visitors enjoy the local sandy beaches, pristine nature that has not been influenced by civilization, as well as the unique underwater flora and fauna. Every time you dive into the depths, you'll see marine beauty that's like none other. Most visitors like the country because:
- taking a stroll through Djibouti's colorful streets;
- watching sunrises and sunsets near Lake Las Abbe in the west;
- diving in Goubet el Harab Bay, where whale sharks live;
- traveling through the Goda Mountains, north of the Gulf of Tajoura, which offer breathtaking views.
Most of the country's tourist attractions are natural. Ecotourism is one of the areas that receives particular attention.

- walking around Le Marché and shopping for jewelry or camels.
