Beachgoers have several magnificent beaches to choose from. A number of large hotels are located near the AlQurm Area beaches. Ras Al Hadd Beach, located about 60 kilometers from Sur City is home to a turtle reserve where turtles lay an estimated 6,000 to 13,000 eggs. Spectacular rock formations and bays abound, creating havens for birds and humans!
Mutrah Corniche is located near one of the most vital ports in Oman. Port Sultan Qaboos may be one of the more gorgeous sites in Oman, overlooking spectacular mountains and rock formations. From this beach, one may enjoy the sea or admire the city’s ancient buildings.
Of course, Oman tourism encompasses much more than beaches. To the north lie the Al Hajar Mountains. In the south, visitors can experience the Dhofar Governorate Mountains. Slopes on Jabal Shams lead travelers to the mountain’s peak. Oman tourism is proud of its tourist guest homes where visitors can relax and enjoy the views and serenity of this area.
