As you drive from Muscat the first stop on the way is Quriyat. This small fishing town is 83km southeast of Muscat and has many historical landmarks with the first being Quriyat Fort. The fort was built for defense as well as residential purposes. The fort was modified in 1987 to become a museum to contain the states historical pottery and weaponry. Another historical landmark is Sheikh Malik’s Mosque which can be seen from a distance.
Bimmah Sinkhole: Hawiyyat Najm known as Bimmah Sinkhole in English, is a water-filled depression, structurally a sinkhole, in the limestone of eastern Muscat Governorate in the Sultanate of Oman, very close to the Al Sharqiyah region just off the highway to Sur, few kilometers before Tiwi.
Fins Beach: Fins Beach, located on the Amerat-Sur Highway, opens up a panorama of strikingly white sands and intriguingly pebbly beach, with sparkling turquoise waters and soft cool breeze.
As a popular weekend spot, Fins, usually, is a busy camping area, more so during the winter months. But the long stretch of beach has little nooks that can turn into camping or picnic spots, presenting the magnificence of the beach and the surrounding fishing village.
Wadi Shab: Wadi Shab is one of the top highlights of Oman. The narrow canyon is home to crystal clear blue water pools and also a secret waterfall inside a cave.
Freshwater cascading from tops of the mountains meet the briny sea water on its banks, creating an environmental diversity, making it stand on a pedestal of its own when compared with the other wadis in the Sultanate.
Timing: It is best to start early in the day.
Days: 7 Days a Week
