Ayoon Pools

Natural Pool in Western Salalah Plain

Below the village of Ayoon there are some natural pools surrounded by tall stands of reeds and other vegetation. The pools are accessed along a 3km off-road track and make for a pleasant picnic spot. The site lies right on the edge of the monsoon catchment, and the contrast between the green slopes towards Salalah and the desert floor that stretches inland is remarkable. There are no facilities here.
