  • Its a secluded place... good for taking a break... not for the elderly... or the too young... a bit dangerous for children if left unsupervised. Good all rounder... a bit secluded quite place... surrounded by date trees. You can pack a lunch n go on a windy cool day. It will be a great experience.
  • An enjoyable visit. Well kept and tidy. The caretaker and guide was helpful, providing a limited yet informative brief about the historical aspects.
