The Batinah Coast is absolutely breathtaking. An experienced driver will collect you in a well-equipped 4X4 vehicle and guide you to the stunning village of Bilad Sayt. Throughout the journey, you will have the private space and time to see life unfolding along the coastline.
In the morning, your driver will pick you up at the Muscat Port gate. The drive along the coast will reveal some of the most breathtaking views in the region. Soon after, you’ll reach the Wadi Bani Awf, a large valley in the South Batinah Governorate of Oman. Set between rock formations, this picturesque wadi covers a large area with several villages and many attractions.
Thereafter, you’ll reach the village of Bilad Sayt. Covered in palm groves and terraced gardens, this area is perfect for a traditional picnic lunch which is included in this Muscat tour. Once your appetite is satisfied, your private 4X4 vehicle will promptly return you to port.
Book this scenic excursion, as it will be one of your most memorable experiences in Oman.
