Turtles up close
05/2021 On our round trip in Oman, we also spent one night in the Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve. The accommodation was a fixed tent on a mountain. If that's too adventurous for you, you can simply book a room in the main building.
The first guided tour to the beach started late in the evening. The turtles only come to the beach to lay their eggs after sunset. The evening tour was unfortunately very crowded with families (more than 100 people and 30% children).
If you are really looking for a nice quiet moment to watch turtles, I recommend the tour before sunrise. Very few tourists come this early in the morning and the group is correspondingly small (less than 15 people and 10% children).
