    We reached the Wadi from Sur (40 mins approx.) and we started the visit by our own.
    The tour starts from the parking of the wadi where you have to take a boat to reach the opposite coast where the hike starts (1 OMR per person).
    During the hike we met a local guide who guided us through all the path (for any info his WhatsApp number is +96894141616 and his ig page is “oman_raw_explorer”) and his company was very precious for us since in some points you do not immediately recognize which is the right way to go through.
    Once you arrive to the first natural pool (approx after 30mins walking) you start swimming and you will reach the cave where a stunning view will astonish you.
    I strongly recommend this adventure and even better if you’re guided by a local person who will explain and guide you safely through all the path.

    Ras Al Jinz resort is a mix of eco-tourism, scientific and family leisure experience. The eco- tent gives you a calm and peaceful moments. Also the turtle watching tour adding values to your visit especially with kids. Watching baby turtles is really lovely and cute moments. Knowing about turtles means knowing about key creatures in sea life. Oman is a blessed land where 5 out 7 type of turtles come yearly to nest at Omani coastal. There sunrise and after sunset turtle watching tour, first one would be more excited if you can get up early 😉.
    Also make sure to visit the turtle museum and know more about those important animals.

    A little difficult to find as there are no signs indicating the it was the Maritime Museum. It is a new building, not very large, but the historical contents were interesting - worth hunting out. It has an adjacent car park

    ...and beautifully restored. Whilst it would be great to have a few bits of info around, there are some spectacular views to be had from the walls.

    The castle itself is quite plain and seems to have been over-modernised in the sense that the walls, steps, tower etc are all smooth and uniform and give no impression of age. If you are visiting Sur it would be worth calling in but I’m not sure you would make a detour too much out of your way just to visit the castle. However it does allow you to have some great views over the surrounding area including the neighbouring mosque.

    The city of Sur is extremely amazing. Very rich with castles, landscaping, coastline all over the city. Downtown was okay has some attractive shopping areas. Lack of quality food there as most of the community is Asian.
