An early evening’s walk through a souq (market) alongside the beach, is the perfect way to unwind after a day’s work. Although the sun has set by 5pm, locals take full advantage of the coolness to enjoy the outdoors, with most

shops only closing at 10pm.

The scent of cooking food and freshly brewed coffee drift about on the gentle sea breeze – what shall we eat is a tough decision right now!
