Camping at Ras Madrakah

Home > Al Wusta > Camping at Ras Madrakah

Soft sand and black volcanic rock formations

Situated about an hour’s drive from Ad Duqm, the contrast between white, soft sand and black volcanic rock formations make Ras Madrakah a favourite for those camping and fishing close to the shore.

An hour’s detour off the main road between Duqm and Shwaymiya is rewarded by the sight of a colourful landscape of rocks in every imaginable hue. These headlands edge the coast and are interrupted with pretty, white-sand bays.
