 Additional Information

As far as dives, sites I've seen so far are rather different and much cleaner than in other places I have visited Algiers. A beautiful wreck at 35 meters from the Second World War, falling with abundant flora and fauna including moray eels, conger eels, groupers and sea slugs.
Regarding hardware, everything is new and it is quite possible to arrive at the club with his hands in his pockets and fully equipped. Otherwise, the diving sites are located within 20 minutes by boat from the club, and it seems that there are many (I have been to three so far)

Spot très appréciable, offre de très bonnes vagues en fonction des conditions climatiques.
Meilleur période pour surfer : Novembre - Février

En été le vent souffle généralement à l'EST (3-6-9), idéal pour le kitesurf et la planche à voile.

Les conditions sont idéales quand il y a un système dépressionnaire sur le SUD de la france, on récolte de l'autre coté un swell magnifique.

Atmosphere

Le spot est connu des locaux, la majorité y ont grandi, appris à nager à prendre les vagues sur leur tors, depuis les années 90, la génération grandissante a pu s'équipé en matériel (Surf/Bodyboard/skim/Kite).
Tout le monde se connaît, il y a une très bonne ambiance.

En été l'affluence grandit, mais cela ne gène pas trop, car le meilleur moment pour surfer est généralement de bon matin avant 9h, de temps en temps quand les conditions sont bonnes, la houle perdure jusqu'à l'après midi en fonction de la présence du vent.
En fin de journée (18h-20h) de temps en temps après l'arrêt du vent d'Est, il peut y avoir une houle résiduelle très utile pour s'amuser après le boulot.

General

Personnellement, je fais partie des locaux, j'y habite depuis ma naissance, j'ai testé quelques autres spots (Cherchell, Madrague, Chenoua...) mon choix se porte toujours sur DK-plage.
Il est vrai que du coté de Annaba (Cap Rosa / Aïn-Barar), les vagues sont magnifiques aussi, donc faut prévoir une visite de ce coté là aussi.
