Khawr Al Qurm Al Sagheer and Al Qurm Al Kabeer: These two lagoons are located near the Hilton Hotel Salalah in the Governorate Dhofar. They have acquired their names from the dense mangrove trees that cover the two lagoons and obscure the waters from the main road. This encourages many birds to build their nests in them. The lagoons are considered the perfect place for the bio-cycles of some micro-organisms and plants. Fish species adapted to low water salinity also live in the lagoons.
