Easy to find - 4 wheel drive recommended. Take main hwy from Muscat to BidBid to Al Ashkara. At Al Ashkara bear right (south-west) - road under construction - currently (Winter 04) pavement ends about a kilometer and a half past the new Youth Hostel ((13 Omani Riyal a night (30 Euro) and nice)). Hard-packed sand (usually) for another half kilometer or so then bear left toward beach - should see the shipwreck just before this turn - very close.
