It was wonderful to see the turtles in-action digging holes and laying eggs with crabs trying to snatch a few eggs before heading back into the water.

We stayed at the location for one night and found it very comfortable. The food served for dinner and breakfast was also very decent. It helped to stay at the property as we were given preference for the turtle watching at both night and morning times and it was convenient to be on site to go for turtle watching at... More

The drive from Muscat was at least three hours (essential lunch stopover included)... Omani heat does take a toll on you by the time you reach the hotel. But what a hotel... Courteous guard at the gate manning the boom barrier greets you with a pleasantly disarming smile, and you can sense a genuine level of care in his interaction... More

It was a great experience seeing the turtles come out of the ocean, lay their eggs and return, but we were disappointment by the lack of care for the turtles and the general environment. The groups visiting the beach were too large, children were being allowed to run around unattended and make loud noises, and flash photography was being used.... More
