Let’s See Dolphins!Next destination is Shib Deraz beach (Turtle Nestling Beach). Shib Deraz is a protected area for Hawksbill sea turtle. Hawksbill Turtles are critically endangered species. Shib Deraz has become a safe spot through the controlling of natural and human disturbances on the beach where Hawksbill Turtles come to make a nest for their eggs. Every year from late February to late June, the intact gentle slopes of the southern shores of the Persian Gulf hosts hundreds of Hawksbill Turtles that come to lay their eggs. After about two months a small black nose appears shyly from the sand on the nest, this means that the eggs have been hatched.Watching turtles creating the nest and laying at night or these little turtles may not be possible due to the protection of department of environment.
