Scattered about are the empty houses of the fishermen which await the return of their families from the north. Another beach is called the "tourist camps" by the people who arrive by car from the neighbouring Gulf countries, coming from the Wilayat of Ibri in Al Dahira to spend some time among their brother Omanis in the agreeable weather of this Governorate, which being triangular in shape thrusts into the waters of the Arabian Sea with beaches on all sides.

Due to its location on the pristine blue Arabian Sea and its rich resources, Al Duqm can offer world class infrastructure from an industrial, environmental and touristic perspective
