for off-roading and geology enthusiasts

A haven for off-roading and geology enthusiasts, Wadi Al Abyad is about one and a half hour’s drive from Muscat and known for its turquoise water pools and stunning geological features. Interestingly, some of the area’s largest sand dunes can be found nearby.

Wadi Al Abyad (وادي الأبـيـض) is a wadi located in Nakhal, in the South Al Batinah region of Oman. The name of the wadi is in reference to the white color of its water pools, which is likely due to carbonate rocks in the region (although to our own eyes, they just looked like normal colored pools but hey that is the justification for the name).Wadi Al Abyad is an easily accessible wadi that can be reached from Muscat in under an hour (depending where you start). The wadi offers its visitors a nice trekking path, some fresh water pools and many plants and palms on both sides of the wadi, making it a nice place for an easy hike or for families to picnic on a nice day.
