    Visit Santa Cruz

    This is a Spaish fort built in the 1600's on the highest point in Oran. It is an adventure to climb all over and see how the soldiers lived at that time. There is even a bar in the fort. When I go this time, I'll take some pictures I can load.

    This beach is wonderful, although quite popular, it's still fun.
    The start of the sea has a shallow sandy area where kids can play, and a little further you start to have small reefs and lots of fish in the clear water. It is beautiful.
    I remember playing there as a kid, catching the fish in my red bucket!

    Some hour or so drive from Oran, this is a natural beach, with wonderful views on the way there. It's a little stoney, and you have to try to find the sandy bits, but it's wonderful, with warm water.

    La maison de la vielle

    Althought not quite in Oran, this house is set on the road west out of Oran. An old Spanish lady lived here for many years (hence the name), and it was used for a spot of catching oysters.
