The Climb up to Al Sawadi Tower

sawadi 1  Sawadi Beach is a gorgeous place to visit in Barka – about a hour and a half from Muscat along the coast as you drive towards Sohar.  We’ve enjoyed several trips to this beautiful spot and I wrote a post about the watch tower and public beach there almost exactly 3 years ago. Time to post a more recent trip – one in which I decided to climb all the way up to the tower.  It was a moderate hike and the views at the top were well worth the effort!sawadi sign
