Bama ‘Sinkhole’, Tiwi Beach & Wadi Shab

Duration: Full day
Included: 4WD Private Transport, Pick-up, Omani guide, lunch & soft drinks

tiwi village

On leaving Muscat you drive through Wadi Adai and arrive in the village of Mazara and its oasis of date palms. This is one of the most scenic picture postcard areas in Oman. Follow the foothills of the Eastern Hajar Mountains through wadis and dramatic landscapes. Here the black tarmac road ends and you now experience coastal off-road driving across ancient dry sea beds and dusty red mountain tracks towards Dibab arriving at a huge natural sinkhole known as Bait Al Afreet‘house of the demon’ - with its clear green water. Onwards to Wadi Shab, which means, ‘gorge between the cliffs’. The wadi has cool pools of water all year round.

Further into the enchanting wadi is a deep pool ideal for swimming. The ravine is lush with trees, grasses and date palms. A single beach dotted with fishing boats at the mouth of the wadi completes the picturesque view. After an exhilarating hike, cool off on White Beach in the azure waters of the Arabian Sea. Once refreshed you travel to the coastal village of Tiwibefore commencing your return journey towards the quaint fishing village of Quriyatwhich has areas of outstanding natural beauty and is an ideal spot for bird watching. Like other ports it suffered under Portuguese supremacy during the 16th century.
