Witness the Mughsayl Blowholes gushing water high into the air

Mughsayl Beach is a favourite picnic spot with locals and visitors alike. Towards one end of the beach, near Marneef Cave, visitors can witness the Mughsayl Blowholes gushing water high into the air during monsoon season.

Marneef cave is in close proximity to Al Mughsayl Beach, which one of the most preferred picnic spot by Salalah locals, residents and tourists.

As per wikipedia, the definition of a cave is “A cave or cavern is a hollow place in the ground, especially a natural underground space large enough for a human to enter”. In the light of this definition, Marneef cave cannot be classified as a cave as doesn’t have any such opening, but may be it’s the look, which makes it qualifies for cave.

There are many benches besides the cave, where tourists can sit and take a view of the cave or Mughsayl Beach or Blowholes. It’s definitely a nice selection to choose from.
