You don't really come here for the accommodation, you come for the chance to spot turtles laying eggs on the beach and babies hatching - and this really is magical, with guides to ensure the animals are safe and undisturbed while still enabling you to watch this amazing sight.

Peak season is August. Visited in February the low season but still turtles laying eggs. Hotel is basic but well positioned. Short walk to the beach. Best viewing in the morning, before sunrise. Not many people present and the sun came up as the turtles were returning to the sea.

A beautiful location with a unique experience for guests. Turtles were awesome, highly recommend staying around for the museum the morning after to meet any baby turtles that were found lost on the beach from the night before.

Dear pramit, Greetings from Ras Aljinz Turtles Reserve. the nearest airport is Muscat International Airport. The reserve is around 3hours from the airport. generally the high season of the turtles is on summer but all the year around they don't stop to come out from the beach. So on September is the not the season of the turtles but, we can see around 5-10 turtles daily and some few nights no turtles. Also, on this time is the high season of the baby turtles. Regards.
