Welcome to Yitti
If the tide is low, you can wade to a sandbar and look left for a great view of Bandar Jissah’s famous sea arch. You’ll notice a clump of serrated rocks at the end of the inlet. It was believed these rocks were inhabited by jinn (genies) and offerings used to be left at their base. Alas, the spirits have gone somewhere more private, according to the local fishermen, because of the disfiguring earthworks on the far side of the creek. A large resort is planned for the entire bay, but progress is slow because of the fall in oil prices, and Yitti remains, for now at least, a peaceful backwater.
