Public efforts are underway to beautify the waterfront at the Al Hida coastline in south Al Sharqiyah governorate and provide essential services to visitors. The coastal area is located about 350 km from Muscat. It is distinguished by its moderate weather through the year, clean beaches and golden sand. The project started at the beginning of this year and its progress has reached around 50 per cent. Intention is to complete the project by this year.
