The Khor Al-Udaid area is known locally in English as the 'Inland Sea'
The Inland Sea is a large tidal embayment with a convoluted shoreline, about 15 kilometres from north to south and up to 12 kilometres from east to west. It is connected to the Arabian Gulf by a relatively narrow, deep channel, about 10 kilometres in length.
This name also is applied to an enormous area of moving sand dunes, which are the main draw card for tourists to this area.
