A tourist destination fast picking up the pace for its combination of exciting activities as well as peace and solitude, Al Wathba is the perfect getaway to unwind. Probably one of the biggest and most striking attractions of this town located along the arid desert is the huge expanse of Wetland Reserve, home to a rich natural ecosystem, and the cacophony of flamingos! Talking of birds, falconry is a popular sport and you can experience it too, on one of the various tours of the desert. The Fossil Dunes of the desert surrounding Al Wathba are equally breathtaking for their geographical formations and for lending a distinctive character to the terrain. If you want a better glimpse into Arabic culture, don’t forget to catch the national sport of camel racing at the Al Wathba track or camp under the stars in the desert like Bedouins do.
