The turtle centre is located near the town of Sur east of Muscat and is famous for its turtle nesting spots of international repute. Its a haven for some of the rare and endangered turtle species. Between the months of June and August, Green, Olive and Hawkshill turtles arrive on their annual visit to lay eggs. Tagging done by researchers has proved that these slow and steady visitors travel from Somalia, Saudi Arabia and The Maldives, a distance of over 2000 kms to reach their favourite nesting spots in Sur.
To the west of Muscat lies Sohar, which for over 600 years has played a significant role in the development of the region. It was the capital of the Persians about which the great Arab geographer Al-Istakhri wrote ” Sohar, the heart of Oman, lives on the sea coast and it is rich with shops where ships anchor. There is no prosperous and developed city on the Persian Sea and Muslim countries other than Sohar”. Today, Sohar is a rapidly developing modern city with a strong link to its glorious past. The city and its surrounding areas offer a great number of attractions to visitors such as the old souq, Sohar fort, wadis and jebels.
