The Beach Guide

Legzira Beach

One of the most unique and beautiful beaches you’ll find anywhere, Legzira Beach is famous for its huge rock arch. There were oririnally two arches, but one collapsed in late 2016. The second arch is at risk as the ocean continues to erode the red sandstone from which it is formed. The arch is accessible at low tide, and it is quite an amazing sight to see. Just remember that the tide does come in, so exercise caution going under the arch if you don’t want to get cut off.

The beauty and charm of this spot is in its remote location. You won’t feel crowded on its golden sands; rather you will feel as though you have been transported out to a magical desert island. With the wide sand and red rocks alongside the Atlantic waves, it is a truly special spot.

Legzira Beach is a favorite spot for surfing and kitesurfing. The locals enjoy this beach on the weekends, so you will see people sunbathing and picnicing. You will find plenty of parking at the top of the cliff above the beach. Then, you walk down to the beach, where you will find restrooms and a few cafes.

This is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Africa, especially at sunset when the red arch glows in the sun’s final rays.
