Exploring Ras Bir Beach In Djibouti 

Ras Bir Beach is a small secluded beach that is located in the vicinity of the small port town of Obock on the northern shore of the Gulf of Tadjoura, in the northeastern part of the Republic of Djibouti.

The beach itself might not be that famous, however, there are no people that would be swimming in the sea, and in addition it is surrounded by tall cliffs that give an impressive and unique landscape view.

At one part of the beach, there is very nice sand beach where people could go in for a dip in the turquoise water, while on the other one are several small huts accompanied by a larger one where the locals can sit and hide from the scorching sun.

Even though people are just stopping by here on their way to the Ras Bir Lighthouse which is just down the road, it must be noted that during sunsets here, the water color is quite interesting as it changes colors when the sun is slowly setting behind the hills.

Always Visit:

All in all, it might not be worth spending entire day at Ras Bir Beach, but it is definitely worth seeing the other side of Djibouti that not a lot of people could experience while visiting this secluded country at the horn of Africa.


Djibouti, officially the Republic of Djibouti, is a country in the Horn of Africa, bordered by Somali to the south, Ethiopia to the southwest, Eritrea in the north, and the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden to the east.

The country has an area of 23,200 km2 (8,958 sq mi).

In antiquity, the territory, together with Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somaliland, was part of the Land of Punt. Nearby Zeila, now in Somaliland, was the seat of the medieval Adal and Ifat Sultanates.

In the late 19th century, the colony of French Somaliland was established after the ruling Dir Somali sultans signed treaties with the French, and its railroad to Dire Dawa (and later Addis Ababa) allowed it to quickly supersede Zeila as the port for southern Ethiopia and the Ogaden.

It was renamed the French Territory of the Afars and the Issas in 1967.

A decade later, the Djiboutian people voted for independence.

This officially marked the establishment of the Republic of Djibouti, named after its capital city.

The new state joined the United Nations in its first year.
