Hôtel-Restaurant Le Golfe

Hotel in Tadjoura

Under French-Ethiopian management, this low-key but well kept resort with a family atmosphere is situated in a relaxing waterfront setting, about 1.5km from the town centre. The 28 units, 10 of which come with sea views, are not fancy but are functional, and there’s an excellent on-site restaurant (mains DFr1500 to DFr2600) with a terrace facing the Gulf of Tadjoura.

The menu concentrates on well-prepared seafood, French specialities and voluminous sandwiches. There’s no beach to speak of but the owners can organise transfers to Plage des Sables Blancs (DFr7000 for four people).
