On the eastern shores of the Arabian Peninsula
The Turtle Centre conducts guided excursions every evening and at dawn to view the turtles and witness the nesting process.
Ras Al Jinz is a fishing village located in the Ras Al Hadd, on the eastern shores of the Arabian Peninsula. It is a unique natural landscape with unspoiled shorelines, golden deserts, luxuriant green oases and rugged mountains. It's probably the most important nesting concentration on the Indian Ocean. This is the only place where the public can watch the nesting process of these amazing sea-giants. A once in a lifetime opportunity.
In total there are 31 rooms. A unique experience is to stay in one of the 12 Australian manufactured and air-conditioned luxury eco-tents, or for the more traditional experience sleep in one of the 17 air-conditioned twin/double rooms. Families have the option of two air-conditioned bunk bedded rooms. Eat at the restaurant called Sea Giants, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Turtle Reserve was established by Royal Decree in 1996. The Ras Al Jinz Turtle Centre, a true eco-tourism project, was established in 2008 to help conserve the fascinating and amazing nesting processes of these giants of the marine turtle world. Whilst the Centre cannot control the natural threats to marine turtles such as birds, crabs and fish preying on the hatchlings, or adult turtles being attacked by sharks or foxes predating on the eggs and hatchlings the Reserve, in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs the Centre can educate and control the human threats.
The Centre conducts guided excursions every night and at dawn to view the turtles and witness the nesting process. All the Centre guides have a commitment to the preservation of the turtle and are very knowledgeable. Rates are all inclusive of buffet breakfast, turtle viewing (evening and dawn) and entry to the Turtle Reserve Visitor Centre (Museum).
