A team of four paddlers met up at the club early for a paddle around the Suwadi islands, just past Barka. The weather forecast was good. Suwadi offers interesting padlding with a handful of rocky islands strewn along the Batinah coast line. This is quite remarkable, as the coastal plain is as flat as a pancake.
The islands are relatively close to shore, and are ideal objects for paddling exploration given their interesting shapes and forms. The biggest island has a recently built but abandoned tower on its top, from which we were able to see the Dimaniyat islands on the horizon faintly in the haze, about 20 km away. A fantastic day !
