TURTLE WATCH & SUNRISE AT RAS AL JINZZ
The Ras al jinz nature reserve was established in 1996 when the Ras al Jinz national nature reserve and the Ras al Hadd national scenic reserve were merged into one order to better protect the sea turtles and their natural environment. The protected area stretches over 120 square kilometers with a 45 kilometer coastline, extending for one kilometer into territorial waters.Ras AI Jinz is a fishing village located in the Ras AI Hadd Turtle Reserve on the eastern shores of the Arabian Peninsula. The Ras AI Jinz beach is world renown for the nesting endangered green turtle (Chelonia mydas), 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.
