Nestled at the foot of the Al Hajar Mountain range
Located between Nakhal and Al Rustaq, Al Awabi is a quaint traditional-looking Omani town nestled at the foot of the Al Hajar Mountain range.
The small village of Al Awabi straddles Hwy 13, the road that links the important towns of Barka with Rustaq. With some attractive modern houses painted in pastel hues in defiance of the national ‘white only’ regulation, this is a typical Batinah Plain village. It boasts a fort but not very much else by way of sights, but it has an important function as the gateway to Wadi Bani Kharus.
