Wadi Bani Khalid

Wadi Bani Khalid


Bani Khalid


Wadi Bani Khalid is considered the largest, most famous, and most beautiful oasis in Oman. There are serene emerald pools of water surrounded by palm trees, all set against a rugged desert landscape with boulders and steep cliffs.

Wadi Bani Khalid has been developed to accommodate visitors with several bridges, seating areas, and a restaurant. These additions have been carefully designed so that nothing detracts from the natural beauty of the oasis.

This scenic canyon is a 3 hour drive from Muscat, 2 hours from Sur, and well worth the trip.
