General Info: We choose Oman in this season because is when the green sea turtles are nesting and at the same time we could see the eggs hatching and baby turtles coming out from the nest. Watching the turtles’ night dash to the sea is among the most spectacular thing we ever seen in our lives….however we were really disappointed by the local people not caring about the environment and destroying nests and killing little baby turtles…


Day Area What to Do
1 London to Muscat It takes just 6 hours to arrive to Muscat. We took the night flight and arrive early in the morning, leaving us a full day to explore the city. The city extends for ca 50km along the cost and touristic attractions are in different part of the city. The quick way to explore the city is to book a tour or drive across the city. Our Guest House organized the tour for us as well as the pick up from the airport. We visited the Muttrah fish souq (market), Mutthah Corniche, silver and spices souq, the Sultan Qaboos Grande Mosque (open only in the morning), and Oman Parliament.After the full day tour of Muscat, we drove 200km south to Ra’s Al Hadd village where our guest house was. “Casa Oman” is a private “home” owned by a very nice Italian guy, Iapo. We loved Iapo enthusiasm and definitely recommend to stay at his Casa Oman (Oman’s home).
1-4 Ra’s Al Hadd Iapo organized for us fantastic tours:
– day 1: Bimmah Sink Hole + White Beach a Fins + Wadi Shab + Sur (ca 300Km, 40€ pp)
– day 2: Wadi Bani Khalid + Wahiba Sands (ca 500 km, €40 pp)
– day 3: dolphin watching boat tour (€20 pp)
…and sea turtles watching every night (for free) just outside Casa Oman by the beach. We also helped saving baby turtles from predators (including humans) releasing them in the water.Casa Oman Extras worth mentioning:
– 10 RO (€20) pp for lobster dinner
– 10 RO (€20) pp for Al-Hassa beach BBQ and camping.
– 10 RO (€20) pp for typical omanite lamb dinner
5-7 Muscat  Forgive us Iapo! We loved your Home and the friendly athmosphere….but few days in a luxury hotel is an experience we had to try! Shangri La is simply the best!! It’s like they said…almost as if you have walked into a real Arabian palace!
8 Muscat to London Sadly we had to go back to London.
