Leisure activity at RAF Khormaksar in 1951 included swimming from the one-mile beach on the east side of the peninsula, forbidden due to the risks from shark, sting ray, sea snake and/or sting rays, or turning the tables and attacking the wildlife instead. Airmen from my father's section hooked this unfortunate sting ray beside the salt pans north of the airfield. Found this old pic in attic junk ... The beach is now a tourist attraction with sunbeds etc. but I'm not sure that one could enjoy a relaxing holiday there.
