    Remains of old British runway

    The bay at Ras Al Hadd, Oman

    There is a remains of an old British runway at the town of Ras Al Hadd. It is for a British airbase here during World War 2 where planes took off for the African campaign. The airbase is no longer around and you can hardly notice the runway. Unfortunately I did not take a photograph of the runway but would share with you a nice photograph of the bay near to this runway.

    Desert near to Ras Al Hadd, Oman

    There is a small desert as you approach Ras Al Hadd and it is worth stopping to take some photographs. There was some heavy rain a few days before I went there, which is why you can see water in this photograph.

    Low tide along the coast of Oman

    During low tide, you should explore the rich marine life on the pools of water which remain. You can see small fishes, crabs, crustaseans and many other colour creatures.

    Rugged coastline

    Rugged coastline of Oman

    Some parts of the coastline along Sur, Ras Al Hadd & Ras Al Jinz can be very rugged but they are very beautiful which provide good views of the Arabian Sea.
