Green turtles nest on the knuckle of the Arabian Peninsula where it juts into the Indian Ocean near Sur, a headland known as Ras al-Jinz (Headland of the Genies). Turtle watching is more regulated than in the past, and you’ll need to join a group heading down to the beach from the Ras al-Jinz Visitor Centre. Turtle watching in Oman can be a bit disappointing; partly this is because group sizes can get large and unwieldy and partly because it’s not unknown for the turtles to be denied the space and privacy they need when nesting. In addition, although some turtles nest year-round, the main nesting season is June to September, which is the height of summer and too hot for most people to consider visiting Oman!
