Ras Abu Ar Rasas

Beach in Masirah Island

With no sights to speak of, you may be wondering why anyone comes to Masirah, but stand on the headland at Ras Abu Ar Rasas and the reason becomes apparent. The ocean pounds the rocky shore on the angry eastern side of the island, while the shallow waters of the western coast are a beautiful limpid turquoise. It's magnificent in its wild beauty.
