The Sugar Dunes: Where the desert meets the ocean

Pros: beautiful place near Al Khaluf village to enjoy the sea and the sand, lots of birds, great 4×4 drive

Cons: know when the tide is low, so you can drive on the beach; can be windy, so plan your camping spot well.


The place is well described in Oman Off-Road bookRoute 36. Here are my coordinates on how to get there and how to get back to complete the loop. We found only one bit on the track a bit challenging, but overall it’s an easy 4×4 drive – you can see our video here. Lastly, very good mobile coverage, especially when you’re on top of the dunes.
