Settlement location help - probably Saudi

Recommended Posts

No luck trying to find this on Google Maps. Looks almost like an island with connecting causeways. A lot of greenery in the background so a possible oasis?

 

1979 so could have changed a lot.

Darin on Tarout Island?

 

Much reclamation since 1979

Hmm what do the shadows tell you about the orientation?

And where do/did they have so much greenery?

Also the main sight on Tarout seems to be that fort. Which sits on top of a hill says Wikipedia.

edit: Are those mangrove forests like the ones in Abu Dhabi in the background?
