Ras Madrakah is an excellent day-trip opportunity for anyone visiting Duqm or on the way to Salalah (through Hasik).
The place offers fantastic camping spots overlooking black mountains and golden sand beaches. Also great bird spotting and off-roading, with nice weather even during the hot summer months.
This is a place that I would highly recommend visiting for any nature lover living in Oman. You will spend at least 5 hours driving there from Muscat, so plan your escape well.
Dimaniyat Islands, Oman – Camping, snorkeling… turtles and sea life
Pros: opportunities to spot amazing wildlife, each island is different, lots of hiking options Cons: need islands’ flora to regenerate to pre-industrial age as virtually no trees anymore
