In the evening, every evening along the roadside and on the beach small groups of men and boys will gather to play Chinlone, a cane ball game some times with a net other times just kicking the ball around in a circle, the purpose is to ensure the ball never contacts the ground and is done in the most elegant way possible with a fantastic array of tricks and darts. a simple smile is usually enough to get you an invite to join a circle.

Ngapali is home to a tidy 18 hole golf course, clubs and caddie’s can be hired on enquiry.
