Wadi Darbat, Salalah

4.4
#2 of 9 in Outdoors in Salalah
Outdoor Activity
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. Plan your Wadi Darbat visit and explore what else you can see and do in Salalah using our Salalah itinerary planner.

  • The area surrounding Wadi Darbat is a rich green microclimate fed by the annual Khareef fog monsoon. We were worried that we were too early in the Khareef to enjoy it, but found a gorgeous, lush wadi ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Wonder land piece, green colour every where, perfect weather, and boot riding opportunity.

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.
