Experience Wahiba Sands, an impressive stretch of sand dunes, known as a sand sea, that runs from north to south.

Some of the dunes reach up to 100 metres in height, making this a spectacular part of the country and a must-see on any luxury holiday to Oman. The desert is home to around 3000 members of different Bedouin tribes and the coast has attracted numerous fishermen taking advantage of the bounty to be found in the Arabian Sea. The sands are also known for their rich wildlife including a number of migratory birds as well as gazelle and mongoose.

Exploring by 4-wheel drive is the best way to experience the desert but we can also arrange camel treks, sunset drives and dune boarding. Wahiba Sands is a beautiful, exhilarating, fascinating and romantic part of Oman.
