White Beach
Beautiful beach for a stop-off. Suitable for anyone who wants to enjoy a quick cool-off and be on their own. If you want to stay longer you can camp there.

White Beach - Perfect beach for breaking your journey

If you can manage without toilets and loungers then it's worth breaking your journey at White Beach, since the beach lies right between Muscat and Sur at the level of Wadi Shab. This route is often chosen by travellers as the start of a circular road trip. As the name implies, the beach's characteristic feature is its white colour. The sand and the stones lying on it really are a striking shade of white. This is not only unusual for the area, it is also rare in Oman.

The beach does not offer any infrastructure for visitors but it doesn't need to because White Beach is perfect for cooling-off briefly en route. A longer stay in this sparse and to some extent lifeless landscape would suit those who want to have a couple of days' peace far away from any civilisation. You can pitch your own tents at a camping area near to the beach, but this consists merely of a marked area in which you are officially allowed to camp. Visitors should bring food with them to be on the safe side.

Every beach is unique. Apart from how the beach looks and its surroundings it is mainly the people and the amenities here which give the beach its character.
