Wadi Shab lies in Niyabat Tiwi, Wilayat
of Sur, is 76 km from Qurayyat. It is easy to reach this wadi from the
Qurayyat-Sur highway. The wadi combines the attractions of coast areas and
inland wonders. It has at least seven pools of shimmering emerald green water
studded beautiful boulders. One of the pools is in a cave where light streams in
dramatically from above and there are fantastic echoes as you swim and splash.
About seven kilometers away from Wadi Shab starts Wadi Tiwi which
extends 36 km inland and ends at a mountain village known as Mibam. Many groves
and fruit trees grow along the course of this wadi from which the azure blue sea
can be seen as you climb up the hills and descend into the valleys.
