Found when taking a diversion on the road between Sur and Muscat, the mighty Wahiba Sands also known as The Sharqiya Sands is home to the bedouins, exciting sand sports and night camping in Oman.
Considered among the most beautiful camping areas in Oman, the Sharqiya Sands extends over an area of up to ten thousand square kilometres! Tourists get the chance to indulge in the true Arabian experience which is a rarity due to the amount of globalisation that has occurred over the past years. The most popular activities at the Sharqiya Sands are dune bashing and going on a camel safari. You can also visit Bedouin families and get to know their culture while enjoying a cup of homemade Omani Coffee. Desert Trekking is also a popular activity among tourists. There are also a lot of fun adventures for kids like sand boarding and horse safaris.
