Wadi Shab also spelledÂ Wadi Shaab, is a very popular wadi located in the Al Sharqiyah region in Oman. It is a very popular outdoor attraction for both locals and ex-pats, and people come here for nature, to swim in the freshwater pools, or just to have aÂ barbecue. The main attraction of the wadi is the waterfall in the cave, which you can reach after a roughly 40 mins hike and swimming in 2-3 pools. I really love coming to this wadi as it is not very far from Muscat, is easily accessible even with a saloon car and because the pools are always full of clear blue water!
Wadi Shab is located in the Al Sharqiyah region in Oman, it is less than 2 hours drive from Muscat and you can combine your trip here with a visit to Wadi Tiwi, Bimmah SinkholeÂ and/or the lovely beach of Tiwi. The wadi is definitely very popular and it gets very busy during public holidays with many families having a picnic at the entrance of the wadi, so best to avoid it during that time if you don’t like crowded wadis.
