Top Tourist Attractions in the Musandam Peninsula
The Great Oman Fjords
Nature formed the great Oman fjords in all their tall and mighty glory. They stand towering above the sea casting their huge shadows on the clear waters below and providing all the exploration opportunity you will ever need. These great locations provide the perfect opportunity for you to camp there in the warm weather that gets pleasantly cool during night time. The clear starry skies provide a great experience for any tourist.
Boat Tours to Various Parts
Boat tours from Khasab take you to all parts of the peninsula including the separated islands like the Telegraph Island, Seebi Island and many others that are naturally preserved in their traditional original state. These boat tours include the traditional dhow boat, Musandam Dhow Cruise or the very exquisite cruises that take you anywhere you want in the peninsula.
Kayaking and Canoeing in Smooth Deep Waters
Once you are in the deep waters in a special boat, the options you have are limitless. The waters are calm and pleasant allowing for great kayaking and canoeing along the coast lines and in the many beautiful creeks found all over the region. You can kayak and canoe all you want and take that occasional swim in the warm clear waters experiencing the beauty of the underwater corals and colorful fish along with it.
Unmatched Beauty of Khawr Najd
If there was one beautiful place that we could tell you about in the Musandam peninsula, it would be the absolutely stunning Khawr Najd. The lookout point offers such great scenic views especially at dawn or dusk that you will not forget them for a long time. This one is located about 26 km from the main Khasab town and you can easily access it on an all-wheel drive vehicle.
Visit one of the most beautiful and traditional old school fort in the whole region, the Khasab Fort. Its huge walls and spacious gardens are perfect for passing quality time with friends and family. There is plenty to catch for everyone with shops and stalls selling all the traditional Omani collectables you will ever want on your vacation.
The cities in the Musandam Peninsula and all of Oman are great opportunities for you to explore the true offerings of the country. Muscat has some of the greatest most secure castles and palaces you will ever find and you can take all the pictures at all these locations including some of the fisherman villages like Qanaha or Seebi getting to know the traditional way of Omani life.
