Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited turtle beach in the evening. We expected to go with a small group. However, at least 10 full busses were send to the same beach. Even with a reservation, we had to wait for 2+ hours. Tickets were paid in advance and you don't get a refund if you have to wait way longer than promised.
After a long wait, we were driven to the beach. There are many rules that you should follow as a tourist to not disturb the turtles, but not even the guides follow those. We saw two turtles, but everyone made so much noise and used flashlights, that the turtles were too scared to lay eggs. Children were also welcome, but not a single person tried to prevent them from stepping on baby turtles. It was horrible to see how selfish everyone behaved and the guides didn't even bother to correct them.

It's scandalous that people are making so much money with exploiting these animals. You should definitely not visit for the sake of these turtles.

This is a stunning beach. It costs 2 OR entrance & is open until 4:30 pm. The rock formations backing the beach are beautiful, but the sea was very rough & I was knocked down by the first wave. Still a lovely, quiet beach to relax on with beautiful sand & plenty of shade provided by the rocks. There were some marked walks but it was too hot for those - perhaps these are used by turtle watching groups at night.

There were only turtles on the beach, and while interesting to see, and walk in the moonlight to the beach, I wouldn't go out of my way for it

This was one of my highlights during my trip in Oman. We woke up around 4:00 am to go to the beach. There was one guide who took us around. His English wasn't that good but it was still understandable. We were very lucky and saw more than one turtle laying eggs as well as little baby turtles running towards the ocean. We also saw some bioluminescent plankton that made the ocean sparkle!

A truly unforgettable experience!

Ras Al Hadd is an amazing beach which is far less touristic and much more respectfully for the turtles than Ras Al Jins. If you’re in the area and want to sleep in your tent on the beach, which is normally forbidden, this is your man: Mr Fayal (00 968 9955 6257). He’s a fisherman witch a license so you can stay on his area on the beach. More than that, you can do a trip on his boat to see dolphins, turtles and even fish tuna witch him! Fayal is a super kind guy, he’s just amazing. He has chill out wooden banks on the beach and if you want to, he’ll grill you some fish in the evening. All this for really reasonable prices, a 2 hours boat trip with boat in the morning + dinner in the evening + accommodation where you can put your tent will cost you around 25 OMR per person. We also spotted turtles at night and Fayal treated them respectfully and you’ll see them all alone, not with a bunch of disrespectful tourists chasing turtle witch their flashlights like they do in Ras Al Jins. Highly recommended!!

Oman is not yet prepared for mass tourism. We waited 2 hours for the tour to the turtles although we had a reservation. Pure chaos! Then you have to walk for 30 minutes to the beach in a group of 25 people. I dont want to know on how many small turtles the entire group stamped. Pure mass tourism with all bad consequences: people egoistically just want to shot a pic of the turtles. It is horrible to see how the pure animals are suffering from the flash light of the smartphones of the fat tourists in flipflops. Well spare yourself this experience if you are a friend of nature.

We went before sunrise and walked down to the beach and saw one sea turtle that had laid her eggs and was then going back to the ocean. What an incredible struggle it was for her but after 30 minutes she got from her nest to the ocean. We also saw some babies that had hatched and the guides helped them down to the ocean. It's an awesome place to see these wonderful creatures.

Go there with the help of local guides. You can see the large turtles coming for laying eggs during end of summer and large number of small turtles getting hatched and returning to sea after 2-3 months.. one of the unique places in earth
