Musandam is Oman’s northernmost region and is home to some of the Sultanate’s most dramatic landscapes. It is here that 2000m high mountains meet the sea, with stunning fjords and crystal clear waters making this area one of the best diving and snorkelling spots in the world.

Khasab makes a great base from which to  explore the Musandam Peninsula, starting with a dhow cruise to spot local dolphin pods and continuing with a trip to explore the surrounding mountains and fjords by a 4×4 jeep or mountain bike.

The village of Kumzar  is accessible only by boat and requires the invitation from a local. Alternatively, boat trips to Telegraph Island or Khawr Najd make unforgettable one or two-day excursions.
