Wadi Darbat, Salalah

4.5
#2 of 7 in Outdoors in Salalah
A year-round natural spring, Wadi Darbat brings life to the valley in which it lies. Snaking through hills blanketed with thick, lush foliage, the surroundings burst with color; the vibrant green hue follows the water all the way to the Arabian Gulf. Amble your way along several nearby walking trails, stopping at shady picnic spots before exploring the nearby watery caves. Rent one of the small boats or pedaloes to make your way across the misty spring's surface. In the autumn (September-November), majestic waterfalls cascade their way down the surrounding hilltops. Bring plenty of mosquito repellant. Put Wadi Darbat into our Salalah tour itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Salalah.

  • The large number of camels on the driveway was interesting me of Wadi Darbat in November. The Wadi Lake is less than expected.

  • This wadi is easily reached from Salalah in about an hour's drive. Sure that the detour off the main road is not reported from classic tourist sign Brown but Omantel's advertising a showing people on a pedalo. Here you turn left and you will see a restaurant. Follow approximately 5 km between camels, donkeys and vegetation and you will arrive at the wadi, where flows a small river of crystal clear water and beautiful. Do not wet or you will take some skin disease. The bar Council beverages. A juice 100 baiza, very honest. Nice place.

  • Awesome place for a get away with family. The ride towards this spot was brilliant as well. Suggestions.. Drive with the windows down for the fresh air.
  • You won't believe how green this place is, any time of the year. Amazing scenery and lots of domestic animals. Facilities for visitors could be better though.

  • Beautiful place during monsoon season

Where to stay in Salalah

The main hotels of Salalah sit close to the sea, enjoying extensive views of the coast, private beaches, pools, and fine-dining restaurants. Some particularly luxurious resorts can be found along the coastal roads, with sculpted grounds and onsite malls. Inland, where the real city sits, you'll find some similarly luxurious hotels. However, there's a much greater choice of standard options, with a pool perhaps, a restaurant for sure, and comfortable rooms. Rental apartments along 23rd July Street provide perhaps the best budget-friendly options in town.
