1001 colors of the south coast

WADI SHAAB ET WADI TIWI

 

Depart by the coastal road.

SINKHOLE

1001couleurs-1

Stop for a photo at Sinkhole, near the magnificent Fins Beach.

According to local belief, this 40-meter-wide sinkhole where mountain water and seawater mix was made by a falling star…

 WADI SHAAB

wadi-shab

Continue along the coastal road in the direction of Sur.

Walk through Wadi Shab in the heart of the canyon, with its transparent waters and succession of natural pools.

Attention: To reach the grotto’s waterfall, you must walk one hour there, swim, and walk one hour again to return.

With only your head peeking out of the water, make your way swimming between two mountain walls to admire the cavity and its waterfall… it is an unforgettable experience! (Not recommended for claustrophobes.)

Picnic lunch in the wadi.

WADI TIWI

1001couleurs-2

Head to Wadi Tiwi by way of a gorge several kilometers long, which leads to this typical Omani village set amidst date palms, rocks, and falaj. 

Return to Muscat at the end of the day.
