Ras Al Hadd Beach

This beach isn't just special for its beauty, it is a place loved by wildlife enthusiasts as green turtles come here to lay their eggs. To witness this spectacular event you will need to be at the beach in the very early hours of the day, as these turtles lay their eggs before the sunrises. The season for seeing these turtles is between June and August, though there are turtles to be spotted during the rest of the year as well. a couple of months after the eggs are laid, they hatch, and the baby turtles swim out into the sea. This too is a spectacular sight.
