As of September, 2016 it is still closed from the UAE side. As the pools are technically in Oman, you cannot pass without a visa. They used to let people through, but not anymore.

This would be a lovely plave if it wasn't for the rubbish!! The pools are lovely and a guilty pleasure of jumping of a rock or two was too good to miss. We camped in the open overnight, we had a BBQ and slept under the stars. As mentioned the rubbish around the whole place is a complete eyesore.....visit by all means but be warned it a scruffy place unloved by some idiots.

Went camping with friends next to the pools in a nice quite location. The next morning we went for an explore and found a natural beauty in the form of the pools and the following wadi. The rock jumping was excellent with jumps ranging from 1-5ish meters into clear cool water. There is sadly a bit of rubbish left from previous visitors which does take away some of the magic of it but still worth a visit. If i was free I would go back next weekend too.

We went for the weekend border and, after checking previous reviews, went through the Al Buraimi border at Al Ain. It is a simple border crossing, but you must make sure you have an entry/exit stamp in your passport (expats) before coming back into the UAE.
The Pools themselves have plenty of little camping spots surrounding them and we felt very comfortable and safe at night. We met some locals the following day who where of course very helpful and friendly and told us a little about the area too!
Though the is sadly quite a bit if rubbish collected along the wadi the natural rock formations are fantastic to walk and climb along. the main pools at the start are great for jumping in with heights ranging from about 2-6m high, with nice scrambling/swimming further down the wadi.
we walked for about 800m down through the wadi until we decided it was too hot for our little one and so turned back to our campsite, but we could have carried on for hours longer.

When you drive over the 44 there is no access any more from Dubai to cut through a small piece of Oman to got to Hatta. You can drive around direction Kabla to get to Hatta and have lunch there in the Fort Hotel. Hatta is now a very isolated place.
Even from Hatta itself access to the pools is is no longer possible. A real pity as we used to drive to the pools often in the past. Dubai has lost an attraction. The border is very complicated formed but there must be a better solution then we have now. The very friendly guy at the border close to the pools told us that people come from all over the emirates just to be stopped 5 kilometres short of reaching the pool destination.
