The Omani territory of Madha (Arabic: مدحاء‎‎) or Wadi Madha is an exclave of Oman, enclaved by the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is located halfway between the Musandam Peninsula and the rest of Oman. It forms part of the Musandam Governorate.

The exclave is on the FujairahKhor Fakkan road in the Emirate of Sharjah of the UAE and covers approximately 75 km² (29 sq mi). There are two exits to Madha on the Fujairah–Khorfakkan road. The boundary was settled in 1969.

Madha is mostly empty, with the developed portion, called "New Madha", containing roads, a school, post office, an 'Eid ground, police station, an Omani bank, electricity and water supply, and an airstrip. There is also a Royal Oman Police patrol.

The population is less than 3,000.

Inside Madha, there is an exclave of the UAE called Nahwa, which is part of the Emirate of Sharjah.

In 2014, it was announced that a Madha Museum would be built to house the collection of local historian Mohammed bin Salem al Mad’hani.
