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.

- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
This spot usually has waves. Much better liner up when decent swell, lower tide, at Point and reef Breaks of Asila and north of Al-Askara
Bring lots of water - no showers or drinking fountains here mates
Beautiful and fun - body-surf as good as surf most days. Close to other decent waves. Great for the family, picnics, fishing, shell collecting.....
