Small semi wrecked old building half way between Holiday Inn and Marina. Unless you have a special reason for wanting to see the Sheik's tomb don't make a special effort to go there. Lots of garbage thrown about.

It's just an old building next to the beach. Nothing really to see. Don't make a trip just for this.

Tomb of Sheikh is just an old building with a little tomb inside that you can't touch or get close enough so this is not much for attraction BUT: the outer place is beautiful! This is the promenade of the city and in my opinion...More
