Turtle Beach, Al Hadd

4.1
#3 of 9 in Beaches in Oman
Beach Nature / Park
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Turtle Beach and other Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate attractions using our handy Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate tour planner.

  • The Oman offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy wonderful nature and this is one of those. Spectacular beach, sea and the thrill of seeing the turtles come to lay their eggs when they are born and go towards the sea. Really nice!
