Ras al Jinz Turtle reserve
Oman has five of the world’s seven species of sea turtles, and one of the most important nesting concentrations on the Indian Ocean of the endangered green turtle. At night, the turtles drag themselves out of the water and onto the beach, dig a hole in the sand, and bury their eggs. Stay overnight at the reserve for optimal viewing time.
