Al Batinah Governorate

Oman's Al Batinah Governorate lies nestled in a verdant valley between the Al Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman. The largest city in the region, Sohar, can be a good gateway for exploring the province's sandy coastline, sleepy villages, and historic forts. Dry "wadi" valleys and date plantations make up the landscape, while things to do in Al Batinah Governorate include fishing, boating, relaxing on the beach, or driving the castle-dotted, mountainous Rustaq Loop, the region's main attraction.
