What to See and Do

Barr Al Hikman (Al Hikman Peninsula) 

Barr Al Hikman is located in the centre of Oman’s east coast in Al Wasta Governorate (the central region), 500 kilometres south of Muscat. This island is considered one of the most important bird migration stations both in Oman and Southeast Asia. Many birds congregate here, especially water birds coming from as far as Siberia’s northern shores.

In addition to being a sanctuary for birds and fish of all kinds, the existence of coral reefs off its shores make it a favourite destination for divers.

 

Duqm Beach 

 This beautiful beach is known for its soft, clean sands, its azure waters and cool breezes, and is only 20 kilometres from the centre of Wilayat AlDuqm in Al Wasta Governorate (the central region).

 

Pink Lagoons 

This lagoon is an amalgamation of salt water pools. Given the nature of the soil’s pink colour, the ponds’ water looks pink, hence the name (Pink Lakes). These lakes are located in the Central Region.

 

Rock Garden 

The Rock Garden lies in Wilayt AdDuqm in AlWasta Governorate (the central region). It is a vast area of strange art forms, naturally sculpted from rocks.

 

Shores of Al Wusta Region

Al Wasta Governorate (the central region) is characterised by a series of beaches varying in nature and topography. Some are surrounded by rocks that look like carved natural awnings, especially in Ra’s Midrakah and Ash Shuway’ir, in Wilayt A'Duqum, while others are carpeted with soft, clean sands like the shores in AL-Jasir and Mahut. All these beaches enjoy mild weather that often blows cool breezes accompanied by a light water spray which gives them their distinctive atmosphere.
