Welcome to Shana'a

Shana'a is perhaps better known, however, as the location of the ferry terminal for the island of Masirah, which can be seen from here on a clear day, 20km off the coast. The whole area is seldom visited but fascinating: nearby Hijj and Mahout, the nearest towns of any size, act as staging posts for intrepid excursions into desolate Barr Al Hickman, while the paved Dunes Rd runs right along the eastern coast of the Sharqiya Sands, offering one of the country's most scenic desert drives.
