Rugged landscapes and golden beaches

From golden deserts and beaches to craggy mountains, Oman is famous for its distinctive landscapes and geological wonders. We love journeying into the humbling Grand Canyon, hoping we keep our head for heights as we gaze down into rocky depths of a thousand metres; then getting a whole new perspective from the bottom, Wadi Nekhar, looking back up at blue-grey cliffs against bright-blue sky.

Highlights of Oman

Beautiful Beaches

Oman's incredible 1,700 kilometres of golden coastline means barely-touched beaches are almost too easy to find. So make the sand your sanctuary, relax and enjoy the gentle warm waters. The snorkelling and scuba diving is exquisite too; you won't have to go far to find coral teeming with clown and parrot fish, squirting sea cucumbers, and sometimes turtles and rays.

Desert Playground

With awesome sand dunes rising to nearly 200 metres, Oman's vast deserts still include unexplored terrain. They make a truly iconic backdrop for camel treks and Arabian nights under the stars or enjoying a barbecue meal in a traditional Bedouin tent. Less relaxing but totally thrilling, dune bashing and quad bike safaris are guaranteed fun for adrenaline junkies.

Muscat

Watched over by mountains and old forts, Oman's capital is a fascinating slice of Arabia's old and new. Explore the treasure trove of Muttrah Souq, its alleyways crammed with jewel-coloured lanterns and intricate jewellery. Gaze at the Sultan's Palace, picnic on Qurum Beach, and stroll along the waterfront on the crescent-shaped Muttrah Corniche, passing mosque domes and dhow boats in the harbour. 

Traditional Villages

Oman's quiet villages can feel like places where time has stood still. This is where you will find the traditional, historic ways of Omani life, and see how people have adapted to the rugged mountains and arid deserts around them. Discover mud buildings, stone houses barely decipherable in the cliffs, mountain-slope agriculture, and remote villages only reachable by boat.
