#3 of 11 in Things to do in Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate
Enjoy a day on the sand and see endangered green turtles at Turtle Beach. The private beach, which you can enter for a fee, remains famous for its turtle residents and their difficult journey from the sea to lay their eggs in the sand. Depending on the time of your visit, you might spot only a few turtles, see a flock of them laying eggs, or, if you're incredibly lucky, even see the baby turtles hatching and making the strenuous journey back to the sea at night.
