Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi
Two of Oman’s most picture-perfect wadis, with palm-fringed ravines running between sheer sandstone cliffs down to the sea.
Jaylah and the Salma Plateau
Superb off-road drive across the top of the Eastern Hajar mountains, passing the spectacularly located Bronze Age tombs and towers of Jaylah en route.
Southern Oman’s most appealing town, with a pretty harbour fringed with watchtowers and the country’s only surviving dhow-building yard.
Ras al Jinz
Arabia’s premier turtle-watching destination.
One of the region’s liveliest and most personable towns, with a colourful souk and a pair of fine old traditional mudbrick villages.
Iconic desert landscape, with towering dunes, roving camels and superb sunsets.
Jalan Bani Bu Ali
Staunchly traditional Sharqiya town, centred on the country’s most magnificently dilapidated mudbrick fort.
