We visited the "Oasis" because we had never been to one before. If you're looking for anything spectacular, it can only be found in the beauty of your surroundings. Imagine a beautiful luscious green Oasis in the middle of a baron dessert. There are concrete walkways to walk through it. We were afraid we may be lost for a bit,... More

We went in near closing time, 6pm, expecting to just have a quick look ! Half an hour later we'd made it half way across the oasis. It's basically a gentle, quiet pathway through walled and gated date farms. Birds fly from wall to trees and floor. So fresh cool and peaceful. The farms have traditional watering systems which are... More

I was there in late April when the temperature was hovering around 43C, and walking in the Oasis was a great way to get exercise and avoid heat stroke! Aside from that, it was pretty boring. Lots of Date Palms, the 3000 year old irrigation system seemed to be made out of concrete, and most of them were not in... More

This Oasis is undergoing some renovations right now - but basically it is a huge "park" - it is a series of Date Tree farms with paths winding through the area. Its quite well done but it has so many twists and turns and not many markings - we got lost and ended up going out a very different exit... More

Well done, historically interesting, lots to see for an hour or two, depending on the depth of your interest in the history of this village area. The museum is worth the few dirhams it costs to enter. If a tourist you may walk into the oasis, but it closes at dusk so be sure to go early in the AM... More

It's very nice to walk through the oasis in a hot summer day and to enjoy the freshness and the smell of green plants. It's very peaceful there and when you want to stay alone with your thoughts for a while it is the right place (we were there during the week). But it isn't attraction though - there are... More
