Enclave of Oman, with about 2,500 inhabitants and an area of 75 km². On all its sides it is surrounded by the United Arab Emirates.
An odd detail, is that inside the Madha, a new enclave is found, Nahwa of United Arab Emirates.
The main settlement is New Madha, while the most original are the village of Sa'ad and the village Hajar bin Humaid.
The historical background of Madha is the peaceful dividing of territory with the final formation of hte independent states in this corner of Arabia; over generations land had been divided and shifted between rulers, leaving small lands like Madha disconnected from the main territory.
