Campers Seek Peace as Noise Disrupts UAE Holiday Getaways

One camper, who chose to stay anonymous, shared their experience on a Facebook group for UAE camping fans. They reported that a group came to Wadi Showka at 1 a.m., making a lot of noise and playing loud music. Even when asked to be quieter, the noisy group did not listen and said they were in a public place which they believed allowed them to be loud.

This behavior led to a discussion among campers about the lack of respect for quiet and the natural environment. Another camper stressed the importance of respecting nature and the desires of others to enjoy a peaceful setting.

The situation was particularly hard for a family at Al Aqqa Beach, whose young child could not sleep because of a nearby karaoke session that lasted until morning. Similarly, at Al Qudra, the end of the camping season was spoiled by loud music and littering from a new group.

These events have led to campers across the UAE asking for more control and respect at camping sites. According to The Global Filipino Magazine, they have reached out to the UAE government, hoping for actions that will protect the peace and cleanliness of these natural areas.

Campers are urging everyone to be considerate and follow basic rules of camping to ensure everyone can have a good time. The hope is that with everyone's cooperation and possible government help, camping can be enjoyable for all in the UAE.
