When you finish exploring the city, head further afield in the comfort of your rental vehicle. Take the main coastal road to Sur where you will find the Wadi Shab, an area of emerald green pools, cool caves, dramatic waterfalls, and sheer cliffs. A drive through the Hajar Mountains takes you to the pretty and historic town of Nizwa where you will find forts to explore. Nizwa makes a good base for hiking in the Jebel Shams mountain range. Drive to the Al Batinah region where you can explore the Nakhal and Al Rustaq Forts as well as the Al Hazm Castle.
