Wadi Shab, Sur

4.7
#1 of 51 in Parks in Oman
Hike your way through narrow canyons leading to crystal clear pools and hidden waterfalls at Wadi Shab. Framed within a barren sandstone ravine, this lush oasis features lower pools that provide a source of drinking water, while the higher ones remains popular with swimmers and those seeking pristine scenery. Meander along a sloping trail lined with banana palms, making your way past village ruins and plantations to shimmering pools and a cavernous waterfall. Restrooms are located at the base of the valley. Avoid hiking in the midday heat. Use our Sur trip itinerary builder to add Wadi Shab and other attractions to your Sur vacation plans.

  • Superb tourist attraction in Oman. Very beautiful mountains, good place for who love trucking , diving, swimming- plenty of water in 'wadi'. Comparatively cool place, very near to Al tiwi beach. Not much crowded place, still parking is difficult. Gypsum stones are on the way. Boating available. Have to spent more time to cover all the area.
  • Very beautiful canyon. Easy access ... the canyon entrance is near the road and can be reached with a very short boat ride. Near the road is a small kiosk. At the end of the canyon you have the possibility to swim further into the canyon and enter a cave with a waterfall through a crevice.
  • Quite adventurous and sporty Séniors needs a bit of help and health but for everybody else it is very funny and and it is a great scenery to watch
  • It's a nice wadi for off road vehicles. I enjoyed a lot
  • Wonderful place......
