Oman is a hidden jewel on the Arabian Peninsula; a mix of ancient and modern, offering pristine beaches, beautiful scenery and a rich cultural environment. It is a modern country in essence, with a rich economy based on oil, but it is its geographical variety and interesting history which makes for a holiday with a difference. It has an incredible wealth of natural attractions, rolling sand dunes, golden beaches and even its very own answer to the Grand Canyon. Visitors can go on organised treks or bike rides through the mountains or may wish simply to marvel at them from afar and in the comfort of their sun lounger.

This rapidly developing destination attracts hikers, divers, nature enthusiasts and historians alike, all enjoying the perfect beaches, mountain ranges, vast deserts, forts, palaces and souks on offer. Like other oil-rich countries, Oman has a wealth of ultra-deluxe luxury hotels to choose from. A taste of the exotic, the mystic and the surreal.

The thousands of kilometres of coastline vary from the fabulous sandy beaches favoured by Oman’s tourists to rugged rocks, islands and lagoons enjoyed by kitesurfing enthusiasts. This coastline remains unblemished, untouched by industrialisation and therefore perfect for enjoyment. 

Although Oman may not be a destination that appeals to the mass market it has much to entice the more selective tourist seeking out authentically rewarding experiences. The majestic fjords contrast beautifully with the wonderful stretches of desert and rocky mountains. Take a boat trip to view dolphins, camp under the stars in the desert, dive with turtles, go caving or simply shop in the lively souks. Restaurants are plentiful and offer multinational cuisine.

This incredible middle eastern country will transport you to a holiday like no other you may have experienced.

Masirah Island is a jewel in the Arabian Ocean. Oman ‘s largest island, it is home to 12,000 inhabitants and is located about 18km from the mainland on the east coast of the Sultanate. Here you find a combination of perfect conditions in various spots including countless breathtaking beaches with flat water and waves. You will meet friendly, curious and helpful people who have kept their peaceful and traditional culture alive in this microcosmos. You will come as a tourist and you will leave the island as a friend. Fishing is the main business on the island and in the centre of the town of Ras Hilf you can buy freshly caught fish at the souq or stroll through a small bazaar, haggle with the sellers and experience the traditional lifestyle.

Masirah Island is reached by way of a six-hour drive from Muscat through the mountain passes and desert wilderness, followed by a 45 minute ferry over to the island. This serious travel effort may be daunting for some but Masirah Island is definitely worth it. The island can’t be reached by plane yet, so we would include 4x4 car rental in your tour. Having your own rental car also provides the flexibility to explore all the different spots on your own and creates an extra value for your holiday. You will also need a car to get to the kite lagoon each day from the Masirah Island Hotel.
