    We were invited for lunch at the Oceanic Hotel which is on the eastern side of the Gulf. The hotel itself caters for all kinds of water sports. It is very popular with Arabs who come for the weekend.The buffet is very good indeed, and the view very nice.Highly recommended. Don't really remember but everything was good.
