How many of you when going on the jeep safari have had the chance to call at Oranhiye and had the chance of "Walking On Water"

Oranhiye is a little village with sunbeds, a couple of restaurents and a camel you can ride, but is better known for a 150 mtr stretch of sandbank that sweeps out into the bay.

Legend goes that when pirates attacked this village, one particular maiden filled the front of her dress with sand and sprinkled it into the sea trying to make a path for her escape.
Unfortunately her sand ran out, sooner than face the raping and pillaging pirates she threw hereselfe off the sandbar and was drowned.

Another story is that if any maiden walks to the end of the sandbank and returns she will go home a virgin.
