Oman camping

Is there someplace near the Ras Al Jinz Scientific Centre that we can set up our own tent for the night?

Thanks, AKNancy

Hi

Its been a long while since down that area, so i can't remember the specifics of the area. but you can camp most places in Oman... find a beach and a space for you should there be others camping, and go for it.

most enjoyable!! Although if I'm honest... if you are arriving in the next couple of weeks,you will find it HOT to be camping!! doable, but be prepared, as it doesn't cool down hugely in the summer evenings.

enjoy

Thanks, no we aren't going until December so hopefully it will be cooler. Regardless, it is going to be HOT for a couple of Alaskans.

Ras Al Jinz has a turtle beach and a decent camping area. You can camp there. Lousy toilet facilities though.

Incidently, Ras AlJinz, is one of the few areas in Oman that get affected by the Monsoon season. It does have pretty decent weather in the summer.

We locals go to Rash AlHadd, Ras AlJinz, and AlAshkhara during some weekends in the summer for some barbecue and to cool off.

Weather will be identical other times of year.
