See the key spots of Oman: Bimmah Sinkhole, Wadi Shab, Tiwi!

Early in the morning, hit the road with your local guide, and drive through beautiful mountain and desert landscapes. You will pass by the coastal city of Quriyat, having headed to Wadi Shab. You will then follow your guide by foot to a sinkhole full of crystal clear water. The plan: relax, walk or swim.

In Wadi Shab, you will enjoy a lunch before leaving again for Mascate. On your way back, you will head along the coast and stop at the Bama Sinkhole, or "the Sinkhole of Bimah". You will be able to dive in and swim in the turquoise waters of the sinkhole.
