Overview

This program is designed for lovers of coastal tours, particularly the adventurous ones.  Oman’s coastline stretches for a total distance of 3,165 kilometers. Most of this coastline sports pristine, stunning, and secluded beaches, including beaches overlooking the Sea of Oman, the Arabian Sea, and the Straits of Hormuz in the North. The coastal strip landscape varies from sandy beaches, rocky coasts, sand dunes, coral reef bays, and islands and lagoons. The diverse geographical make-up is ideal for fishing and marine excursions and activities. Our program will start at Muscat and end in the last part of Oman’s southern coast. The program will include swimming, fishing, sand-driving, snorkeling, overnight camping, or simply relaxing on the sunny beach. We will use 4WD vehicles for most of the program and drive near the beach. Boats or ferries will be used when visiting Masirah Island or the Alhalaniyat Islands. This tour is designed to explore the coast by land with 4WD vehicles. However, we have the option of exploring Oman’s coast via a private yacht. The optimal time for this program is nine days, but we are flexible according to the client’s requirements.

Itinerary

Day 1:
Leave Muscat in the morning for a stop at the Bemah sinkhole (swimming in the sinkhole lake is possible) and the long white Beach of Fins. On the way, you will visit Tiwi and Wadi Shab. This wadi is an enormous canyon gorge lined with palm trees and impressive indications of the power of the water coming from the mountains can do for nature. Next, we arrive at Sur, where you will have a tour followed by overnight at the Ras Al Jinz Turtle Resort or the Ras Al Hadd Beach Holiday, where you have a good chance of seeing Oman's great sea turtles stumbling onto the beach to build a nest and lay eggs. If you are lucky, you will see baby turtles hatching from the nests.
Day 2:
Leave Ras Aljinz in the morning to explore the beautiful coastline villages of Jalan, where the golden sand dunes merge with the blue water of the Arabian Sea. You will have a local seafood lunch in Ras Alruwais before heading to Masirah Island to spend the night there. Masirah Island is the biggest Omani Island with magnificent beaches. Masirah (65 KMs long and 8 to 17 KM wide) is located 15 KM off the southeast coast of Oman in the Arabian Peninsula with miles of isolated sandy beaches. The island is famous for windsurfing. It is also known to have some aquatic visitors, such as the turtles who lay their eggs on the sandy beaches and several migratory birds. Some of the birds are exotic such as the egrets, curlews, and the greater flamingos.
Day 3:
Leave Masirah on route to Duqum. On the way to Duqum, you will visit the green Film Island, the Serab beach, and have lunch in the coastal village of Kholoof. In Duqum, you will spend two nights at the Crown Plaza Resort.

On this day, you will explore the long beaches of the Duqum area, including the magic Ras Al Duqum, Ras Madrakah, and Ras Marakaz. You will also visit the Rock Gardens and relax at Crown Plaza Resort for a second night.

There are also several wrecks in the area, including the famous Vasco Da Gama wreck, the Esmerelda.

Mirbat is a fishing town some 75 kilometers East of Salalah. It is a charming coastal town situated between the extraordinary escarpment of Jebel Samhan and the Arabian Sea.

The choice of accommodations ranges from luxurious resorts to 5, 4, or 3 star- hotels. Salalah, the capital of the south of Oman, is known as the "perfume capital of Arabia" and "the attar capital of Oman." The city is a tourist destination due to the natural attractions of the nearby mountains and the magnificent frankincense trees lining mountain wadi courses. The countryside is green in summer due to the monsoon season with herds of cattle there. The beautiful beaches and coastline are also major attractions for scuba diving and bird watching. Salalah is a city of antiquity, containing ruins of the fortified town Sumharam (Khor Rori), an important port from 100 BC to AD 400.
