Day (3) Exploring the beach and other activities

During the day you can walk to  the small island towards the southern end of Ngapali beach, which is accessible by foot when the tide is out. It offers panoramic views of the beach and out to sea from its summit and snorkeling opportunities among st the coral and brightly colored fish that can be found in the waters that surround it.

You can also hire a boat (with guide) to some of islands that lie a few kilometers offshore, where you can snorkel in the crystal clear waters. Check out our fishing boat trip YouTube video, taken near an island to the south of Ngapali.

Hiring a motorbike allows you to explore up and down many Kilometers of sandy beach around Ngapali (some sections may need to be covered on the tarmac road that runs parallel to the beach, depending on water levels). To the north, the sand ends not far north of Ngapali village, but there are some gems to discover further south, beyond the small island; the beach becomes more and more deserted until you arrive at an isolated fishing village, with its own beach front beer station.

Further south still, you will reach a river inlet with a tiny rope-operated ferry, just big enough to take three motorbikes. From here, you can travel a few kilometers further south to another fishing village, where the sand ends. The whole bike journey south from Ngapali can be done in two to three hours – but beware of the high tide, which may restrict your passage along.
