Getting There & Away
Mwasalat buses run from Muscat’s Azaiba Bus Station (OR3) daily at 1.50pm, returning at 5.30am. The 290km journey is via the coastal highway (Hwy 17) and the town of Sur and takes 4½ hours.
Jalan Bani Bu Ali is 17km from Al Kamil and 36km to Al Ashkharah and makes a good diversion to or from Ras Al Jinz in a tour of the Sharqiya region. This is only possible, however, with your own transport, as these towns are not yet linked by public transport. Local taxis are available, however, for around OR10 to OR20 per journey.
