Al Sawadi Tower & Public Beach

  One of the Sawadi Islands with an observation tower  Al Sawadi is in the Barka Wilyat which is about 90 kms from Muscat International Airport.  Al Sawadi is one of the best places I’ve visited in Oman (and I’ve been to a few) for a family outing.  Qurum Beach and Bander Beach are popular with tourists, but I think Sawadi rocks them all!  Omani boatboat offer to take tourists over to the island for a small fee.  It is even possible to climb up the observation tower if one is interested.  Here are some fabulous photos from a man who did just that.  This is to the left of the observation tower, looking out directly towards the Indian Ocean.  There is plenty to do and see here and makes an excellent spot for a family picnic.  It’s even better if you plan your visit to include a breakfast or lunch buffet at the nearby Al Sawadi Beach Resort & Spa!  Don’t be one of those tourists who do almost nothing while in Oman and then complain “All I saw was a wadi.”  Instead, come out and experience this gorgeous spot along the coast of Oman,  Al Sawadi!
