Two of the nearby beaches are particularly famous: PK25 and Foum El Bouir. The first is beloved for whiling the time away; the beach is made for relaxation and quiet dips in the lagoon's still, crystalline waters. The ambiance at Foum El Bouir, which is renowned for water sports, is livelier. Professional and amateur surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers flock here to get carried away by the wind and waves. The internationally famous Pointe du Dragon is also close: its breakers are impressive and the most celebrated surfers have slid into the spectacular tubes that roll along hundreds of yards.
