    Sharqiyah Sands and Sur Cultural City Tour:

     

    The city of Sur, famous for its ship building, makes the best location for camping and fishing. The city also offers a wide range of activities for nature and sea enthusiasts from turtle watching at Ras Al Hadd, to kite surfing on Masirah Island or visiting the traditional Dhow yard of Sur, where till date Arabia’s ancient style of boat still continues to be crafted by hand. The Sharqiyah Sands is a must-visit, for their dunes reach as far as the horizon and the area full of wildlife. Livestock such as camels, horses are still bred by the local Bedouins which allow visitors to witness camel racing and various competitions all year around.

     

    Sur, introduced to the world as the meeting point across the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman, played a vital role in bridging the gap for commercial business between the Arabian Peninsula, India, South East Asia and the African Continent. Till date, the sea plays a vital role in the lives of Sur.

     

    Some of the places to visit in A’Sharqiya are:

     

    1. Sur Maritime Museum: Flaunting Oman’s maritime history and traditional boat building craftsmanship, the museum is a true exemplification to the trade that glorifies Oman’s rich seafaring heritage. The Museum features the maritime heritage of Oman and the main role that the people of Oman played. In 1987, the museum opened its doors at the Al Orouba Club in the Wilayat of Sur to portray the maritime legacy of the people of Oman in order to preserve the heritage. Since its founding, it has benefited those with an interest in Omani maritime history by furthering science. The museum's entrance is marked by the wilaya's "Al Ghanja Ship" insignia.
    2. Jalan Bani Bu Hassan: Although Jalan Bani Bu Ali and Bani Bu Hassan used to be neighboring rival communities, they now flow into one another amongst the date palm plantations. One of the oldest forts in the area is Jalan Bani Bu Hassan Fort, which you must see when visiting Ash Sharqiyah. It’s northern, northeastern, western, southwest, and southern boundaries are Al Kamil W'al Wafi, Sur, Bidiya, Mahout, and Jalan Bani Bu Ali respectively. The wilayat consists of 197 villages known for their geographical diversity and a number of important economic, historical, and touristic sites.
    3. Al Mudayrib Village: Integrated with waterway system, watch towers and mud brick buildings. Date palms line the village's perimeter, and its historic souq has just undergone restoration. Al Mudayrib's oldest still-standing structures date to the 18th century. The enormous structures with towers of defense served as gathering places for the numerous clans. In times of war they served as a defensive refuge for individuals, members of the tribe or large families.
