Badiya in Oman
Badiya inhabitants are spread among 15 town and villages. Nature here plays its aesthetic role in Wilayt Badiya that lies on the edge of A'Sharqiyah sands, and its oases seem to drown in a sea of sand stretching ever wider and higher. Here begins the adventure of discovering the sands, as visitors to Badiya love to climb up the surrounding sand dunes, which rise to more than fifty metres.
The experience of walking over the soft sand dunes provides endless fun, especially for children as their feet sink in the sand. To increase your enjoyment, it is best to visit Badiya by four-wheel drive. Badiya is famous for its camel and Arabian horse races held every weekend, in addition to "Badiya Sand Racing Challenges".
