Al Batinah is an expansive coastal area running parallel to the magnificent Hajar mountain range. It is home to many beautiful wadis and villages, like Wadi Mistal and Wakan Village, and attractions such as Nakhl Fort and the hot springs of Ain Al Thowara.

Dotted with historic sights and breath-taking sceneries, Al Batinah is considered the green belt of Oman, with most local produce harvested on plantations in the area. Coastal towns are known for their fishery and endless beaches.

Sohar, Oman’s capital city in ancient times, is located in this region and rumored to be the hometown of Sindbad the Sailor (of 1001 Nights fame). Today, the city is one of the largest in the Sultanate, housing one of the region’s largest ports and a lot of the Sultanate’s main industries.
