"Camping on the Beach in August? Bandar Khayran? You must be mad!" they said. However the combination of some keen house guests and a MDAC promo shoot along with a dry run for kayak camping later on led to a memorable event. Hazy overcast skys kept temperatures a little lower and sea breezes at night made sleeping on the beach bearable. Never the less, water consumption was high. I would recommend at least 5 x 1.5 litre bottles per kayak for summer overnighters and more if long distances are paddled during the day.

Tents not taken or needed. A number of possible camp sites were visited. Some only had enough soft level sand for 2-3 people. However a couple had capacity for the full group of 10 overnighters. Several rubbish bins are loacted around the camping beaches that helps reduce the load on the return journey. Another double and single Kayak joined the group the next day.

A couple of possible beaches towards the Sifa side of the BK system were not visited as they involved legs across the open sea and there were a few novices not comfortable with the 1 metre swell encounted at the heads. Next time.

looks like fun.
Where was the put in? How far did you paddle before setting up camp?
What was the total round trip paddle distance?
I assume you had boat/car support judging by the cool boxes!

Any decent fishing?

Looking forward to some paddle-camping after ramadhan.
