Lunch at the restaurant in Wadi Bani Khalid, one of Oman’s most beautiful oases, with its turquoise waters winding through the white rocks.

Deeply ensconced in the mountains, you need walk only a few steps to find yourself in a true chaos of rocks and walls where the clear water runs…. A grotto is accessible with about 45 minutes of walking.
Swimming possible (come with your towel; women, come with a t-shirt).

Return to Muscat at the end of the day (around 7 p.m.).
