Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Ras al Hadd beach is a never-ending yellow sandy beach. It is divided into two areas - the freely accessible north section, where you are likely to come across a few fishermen, and the closed east section, where entry is prohibited in order to protect the turtles. On Ras al Hadd Beach you can go for endless walks, collect all kinds of seashells or cool off in the super-clear Gulf of Oman. Tourist facilities are limited. If you have everything you need in your car you can make use of one of the stone huts and spend a really great day here on an empty beach.

Ras al Hadd Beach - One of the longest sandy beaches in northern Oman

Ras al Hadd Beach is less than an hour's drive from Sur. A beautiful road leads along the shore almost the whole way from Sur, provoking an incredible urge to walk along the beach, and at over ten kilometres long, the beach at Ras al Hadd is best suited for precisely that.

Ras al Hadd Beach is divided into two sections. In the northern part of the small peninsula there are lots of fishing boats and the beach is accessible to the public. As is true everywhere in Oman, there are various parking options here. On the eastern side there are various signs in place indicating that entry is prohibited in order to protect the green turtles, which lay their eggs on the beach between May and December.

The description therefore relates to the northern area of the beach, which is best suited to professional water sports enthusiasts. In summer the wind mostly blows from the land out over the sea. This makes sailing and kiting almost impossible for beginners, although professionals like to have fun here. The beach is not suitable for surf-riding, diving or snorkelling. However, as at the nearby Turtle Beach Resort, some providers offer boat trips to the surrounding islands where you can snorkel and dive to your heart's content.

Unfortunately there is various litter on Ras al Hadd Beach, which is mainly washed up from the beach or left lying around by beach visitors. There are no natural plant remnants but there is an abundance of beautiful seashells. On the beach itself there are various stone huts, so you can spend some time in the shade. Adventurers can even spend a night under the stars here.
