Day Trip: Wadi Shab and Bimah Sinkhole

Unless you hire a car, it's near-impossible to explore the Omani coast south of Muscat alone in a day. This private tour lays everything on, with air-conditioned transport and a personal guide to ensure you cover and hear about the sights. Visit the turquoise Bimah Sinkhole, ancient ruins and villages, and opt to trek and swim in the pools of Wadi Shab, a river gorge lined with palms and waterfalls.

Great to wonder amongst different types of wooden boats and dhows and to observe their construction. Small indoor museum selling a few wooden crafted pieces.

Wandering around the display of old dhows and other boats is interesting, though you don't need long for this little collection, but it's the chance to see the dhows being built nearby which is most fascinating - traditional techniques are still used and you can see the skeletons of the boats ready to be transformed into luxurious crafts. I doubt we'd have found the boatyard without our guide although you can just wander in to see the collection on the seafront easily enough.

It won't take a lot of your time, but visiting the show factory is worth it. Seeing the splendor of old wooden boats skillfully revived is a beautifully experience. You can visit the factory at the beginning or end if a exploring day.
