The geographical jewel of the Sultanate
Consisting of the governorates of North and South Ash Sharqiyah, this part of Oman is widely considered the geographical jewel of the Sultanate. It is here that stunning coastlines give way to the unique ecosystem that is Sharqiyah Sands, making this region a paradise for adventurers and explorers.
North A’Sharqiyah Governorate overlooks the internal side of the Hajar Mountains, to the north it is connected to Muscat Governorate, to the west is Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, and to the east and south is South A’Sharqiyah Governorate. It includes six districts: Ibra, Al-Mudaybi, Bidiyyah, Al Qabil, Wadi Bani Khalid and Dama Wa Al-Taeyeen.
The Sharqiyah Sands allows visitors to experience the desert first hand, with dunes reaching as far as the horizon and the area teeming with wildlife. Local Bedouins continue to breed livestock, including camels and Arabian horses, and visitors get the chance to see camel racing and other competitions throughout the year.
