Tiwi Things to Do

  • Old tomb

    During the journey along the rugged coastal gravel road to Tiwi, you will come across this structure in the photograph which is actually an old tomb of the local people. Apparently, there used to be many of these tombs around here, but many are demolished to make way for the new talmac road which will replace the gravel road soon. The view of the...

  • Entrance to the coastal road from Muscat...

    The entrance to the rugged coastal road from Muscat to Sur where Tiwi, Qalhat etc are located is somewhere after the town of Qurayyat which is south of Muscat. From the main talmac road, this gravel road is rather discrete and the initial part goes along a dry wadi between two hills. After that, the gravel road goes up and down through several...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In order to travel to Tiwi and the coastal areas between Muscat and Sur, you need to have a 4 wheel drive as the road is rather rugged. They are now constructing a proper road which should be ready in about 2 years time, but in the meantime only a 4 wheel drive is possible to reach here.

  • Taking my lunch and relaxing at Tiwi...

    I had my lunch at the beautiful Tiwi Beach and took some time to relax here before continuing my journey. Besides the beach, the rugged coastline is rather colourful with waves making huge splashes. There are many small crabs living along the cliff and I was lucky to actually spot a turtle swimming in the water. This is a really nice place.

  • Relaxing stroll at Wadi Shab

    I really enjoyed the relaxing stroll along the footpath at Wadi Shab. The beautiful weather, sea breeze, amazing landscape makes this a very memorable place to visit.
