Welcome to Al Seifa
There’s not much to the scenically appointed village of Al Seifa, resting in the shadow of the Hajar Mountains. Nearby beaches to the east, however, offer protected camping for those who bring equipment and provisions. The beaches are worth a closer look as they are a lapidary’s dream: in between the sandy bays, pebbles of yellow ochre, burnt sienna and olive green beg to be picked up. For those interested in bugs, the giant-skipper butterfly frequents the surrounding wadis in spring. The whole bay is now the location of an ambitious but not yet wholly complete nor successful tourist development complex.
