Turtle Beach Resort - Fine sandy beach and clear water
Turtle Beach Resort is located a few kilometres west of Al Hadd, in the north-east corner of Oman. The beach is best reached by car. It is divided into a public and a private beach, which belongs to the actual Turtle Beach Resort. If you want to enjoy the beach for a couple of days you can book one of the huts in the resort and take advantage of the full range of facilities. But even if you don't book any accommodation you can still use the Turtle Beach Resort beach for a fee.
Unlike the public section, where there is no tourist infrastructure, the resort offers all the amenities you need, from loungers and a restaurant to water sports facilities. But if you just want to enjoy the sun and the water with your beach towel then the public section will be perfectly satisfactory. There is a free car park right by the beach. If you have snorkelling gear you should take it with you because you can snorkel in certain spots in the bay. The wind can be strong so kiters will get their money's worth here too. It's not suitable for beginners though as the wind can sometimes travel very fast across the water. Solo travellers and couples will be well served in the public section. For families the resort beach is the better choice.
