What To Do

Oman offers the visitor a stunning contrast of deserts, mountains, beaches and all the comforts of a bustling modern metropolis.

There is a wide array of opportunities for exploration and discovery due to its diverse natural beauty and its colourful heritage. Musandam in the north offers majestic Fjords while the south offers sandy beaches, magnificent desert and rugged mountains and lush vegetation.

Below are a few ideas that might tempt you away from the beach for the day:

Explore the Dunes
Take a drive out of Muscat to Wadi Bani Khalid where you will see large pools of water and caves. From here travel on to the Wahiba Sands and enjoy time '4x4 bashing' across the dunes.

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Wakan Village
