Full description
Start your overnight journey from Muscat to Wahiba with a stop to Wadi Bani Khalid, an oasis in the middle of the barren and dry mountains with clear deep blue waters for an opportunity to take a refreshing dip. Then proceed to Wahiba Sands, a vast mass of undulating red and white sand.
 
The ever-changing patterns of the dunes are a photographer’s delight. After some exciting sand dune driving, arrive at the desert camp to eat dinner and overnight.

The next day, start your coastal trip to Muscat through scenic countryside and rugged mountains. On the coastal road, stop at Bibi Miriam Mausoleum in Qalhat. Later, visit Wadi Tiwi, well-known for its lemon and date plantations, before visiting Fins Beach. Enjoy your lunch en route before seeing the limestone sinkhole in Bimah.
