West of Djibouti Airport, the snorkeling at French Beach (aka Khor Ambado Beach) is popular with the locals, but is not well known for good water clarity. There are some coral formations and a few reef fish. Further off the beach, there are snorkeling boat tours that provide the chance to snorkel with whale sharks. The whale sharks come within 100m of the beach in the Gulf of Tadjoura.
