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.
A beautiful place at sunrise/sunset to enjoy white sands aka Sugar Dunes meeting the Indian Ocean in the eastern part of Oman.
About 3 hours away from the capital of Oman, Muscat, there is a beautiful stretch of sand that borders the Arabian Sea called Wahiba Sands.
Oman has several places where you can find pink lakes. There are two tricky bits before you get disappointed. The first one is that they are not always pink and that depend on the weather, tides, or season. And the second one is that they are best enjoyed from the air.
Two very interesting petroglyphs sites in Musandam, Oman providing a testament to life in the peninsula centuries before.
My personal list of my favourite ten hikes in Muscat, Oman.
The place is very close to Muscat, yet is quite inaccessible.
The hike is very close from Sa’al Mountain. A short walk leads to a hole and a cave feature that is used for beginner abseilers.
Enjoy interesting rock formations and find fossils in Rock Garden, Duqm in Oman.
Fantastic place to visit for a day, close to Muscat with water flowing all year round, ruins and new/ancient falaj system in As Suwayh, great hiking in Al Awabi.
