- Hamra village - I loved the historic buildings in honey-coloured brick. It felt like a deserted film set. Camping in the dunes - peaceful.Swimming just yards from the tents at Finn's Beach.The night on the dhow - exotic and restful.The drive from Nizwa to Muscat through the mountains - it felt so remote and I felt so intrepid!The souks - great shopping opportunities - dishdashas, frankincense, spices, dates. Sunil was a perfect guide - knowledgeable, attentive, sensitive, caring, considerate and flexible. He was a delight. He even organised an impromptu pre-breakfast yoga session on the beach for us.
