Ras Al Jinz, Arabian Peninsula

Ras Al Jinz means ‘circle of life’. Nothing re-affirms the aptness of the title more than watching a green turtle returning to its birthplace to lay its precious eggs.

Nowhere else on Earth can visitors watch the nesting process of the endangered green turtles, in such close-up detail, as on the shores of the Indian Ocean at Ras Al Jinz. This beautiful turtle reserve is part of a national nature reserve and - by putting it on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Oman - you will have the privilege of watching these giants of the Indian Ocean hauling themselves up onto the sand, in order to begin again a circle of life that has been repeated for countless centuries.

You will also be gladdened by the knowledge that your visit is playing a small part to help in the continuation of the virtuous circle, and upholding the true values of eco-tourism at its best.
