The turtle watching experience was by far one of the best parts of our trip to Oman. Totally recommended specially if you have kids.

Poor management of staffs there, they can not control a lot of tourists that shouting, shooting with flash, picking the baby turtle... it's too pity the turtles while breeding and surrounding with a human who want acting to social, no manner, no response to nuture, somebody touch it, selfie, pushing it... I'm disappointed this place... They should not allow to... More

An amazing place to meet turtles! We made the choice to sleep in an hotel at Sur, around 30 km from Turtle beach. Then you will save a lot of money, you will only have to pay for the evening visit of this area. Nice guided tour wih explanations of local guide.

Location of Resort is excellent and it has a lovely private beach. But the quality of service & food is average. There is very little to eat for vegetarians

For photo opportunities an early morning visit is the best. Saw a huge turtle crossing the beach all the way to the ocean. Added bonus was being on the beach for sunrise and observing a few baby turtles finding their way over the sand.

The resort is ok, you are guided out in the dark to see turtles. This is fine, however your not allowed to take photo's with a flash - Ok I have no problem with that as these are creatures and nature. However I'm surprised that there is no dim lighting on the beach. As we stumbled around in the dark,... More

This is a beautiful beach away from the hustle and bustle of Muscat. There are not so many facilities in this area but if you want to relax, swim and get a tan then I highly recommend this place.
