Overnight in Muscat.
Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in your hotel and check out to proceed to Ras Al Jinz along the scenic coastal route. Start the day with a leisurely hike through the twin wadis of Shab and Tiwi. An hour and a half later, you arrive at the Bimmah Sinkhole – a spectacular limestone crater with blue green waters. Time permitting, take a dip and cool off and use the changing rooms to freshen up.
Thereafter, proceed to Sur, where the traditional Omani Dhows are still manufactured. Visit the Dhow factory and the open air museum.
This evening, get enthralled as you watch the turtles. Oman is famous for being the destination of choice for 5 out of the 7 turtle species of the world. Going out to see the turtles on the beach is one of the most magical, surreal moments.
Overnight in Sur
Breakfast in your hotel and check out for your onward journey. The only other two places which have pink lakes are Australia and Mexico. Tucked away between the road from Ras Al Hadd and Al Askarah, get a glimmer of pink – well hidden! You may feel wonderful and weird at the same time as these lakes are not mapped and normally nobody is around. It is indeed a sight to behold!
Onto the Sharqiya Sands also known as the Wahiba sands is a large desert with vast golden dunes. The home of the Bedouins! Spend a night in the desert, experience the thrill of navigating the dunes on a 4*4, watch the sun setting on the dunes, enjoy a romantic candle light dinner. Later, cozy up before a campfire with Arabic tea and watch the stars light up the desert sky.
Overnight in Wahiba Sands
After breakfast, check out and head towards Marina Al Bandar, a junction for water-sports, and enjoy a dolphin-watching cruise. Watching wild dolphins is a thrilling way to start the day and the lucky may even come across one of the many species of whales that can be found just a few kilometers from Muscat’s rugged coast. Not every trip guarantees a sighting, but you are sure to enjoy a trip out to sea and enhance your knowledge of nature’s most fascinating marine mammals. Later transfer to your hotel and check in.

After breakfast, you will be transported to the airport for your flight to Muscat and onwards home, with wonderful memories of your desert experience in Oman!
