  • A dream location, relaxing, calm and silent outside the world, we are swimming in a water temperature ideal, end of November. Sitting on the edge of water small fish nibble you the dead skin, a tickling sensation at first but you get used quickly, an ideal place to spend a few hours of relaxation. Not too barren to respect local customs and hosts who invite us into their beautiful country.

  • We had heard that this wadi was the most accessible with young children and indeed the path between the bathing place and the parking is arranged and easy to access. Bridges were built to move from one side to the other. A small restaurant is located at the edge of the water. While this makes the place a little less wild, but the few people frequenting the place and the modest character of facilities allows the wadi to maintain a natural character. We bathed with our 2 year old son and it is an unforgettable memory. The water is clear and winds between the rocks and the trees. A nice visit. Count still 3 hours drive from Muscat.
