One of the most popular eco-tourism activities in Oman is turtle viewing.

Not known to many, the best time to travel and see the turtle hatching is during summer time, between May and September. Being in the Middle East and understandably so, there is always that hesitation in traveling due to the temperature and humidity. Truth is, Ras Al Hadd enjoys a comfortable weather all through out the year and during summer time averaging 25°c and 36°c. Turtle nesting tours at Ras Al Jinz allow visitors to witness the spectacle in an intimate fashion without fear of interrupting the creatures themselves. The turtle sanctuary at Ras Al Jinz combines an interactive museum with research laboratories and a wide range of amenities for visitors to learn all about the wonders of these ancient creatures in a family-friendly environment.

The main attraction of the wadi is the water fall in the cave, which you can reach after a roughly 40 mins hike and swimming in 2-3 pools. I really love coming to this wadi as it is not very far from Muscat, is easily accessible even with a saloon car and because the pools are always full with clear blue water!Wadi Shab (وادي شاب) also spelled Wadi Shaab, is a very popular wadi located in the Al Sharqiyah Region in Oman.

You can spend a couple of minutes just taking pictures of this amazing sinkhole, or more than an hour swimming in the clear turquoise water, but either way you should definitely stop here if you are heading to Al Sharqiyah governorate.
