- Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi
Wadi Shab is
wadiin Omanand located between the capital Muscat and the town Sur, Oman. More precisely it lies in Niyabat Tiwi, wilayat(province) of Sur, and is 26 km from Qurayyat. It is easy to reach this wadifrom the Qurayyat-Sur highway. The wadi combines the attractions of coast areas and inland wonders. It has at least seven pools of emerald green water and is studded with boulders. One of the pools is in a cavewhere light streams in dramatically from above and there are fantastic echoes heard when one swims in it.
About seven kilometers away from Wadi Shab starts Wadi Tiwi which extends thirty-six km inland and ends at a mountain villageknown as Mibam. Many groves and
fruit treesgrow along the course of this wadi from which the azure blue sea canbe seen as you climb up the hills and descend into the valleys.
