An enclave of Oman, The Musandam Peninsula lies to the north of the United Arab Emirates and juts into the Strait of Hormuz, a narrow and strategic waterway between the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf. Separated from the rest of Oman, its isolation gives rise to this regions’s unique character.
With impressive mountains rising straight up from the sea, and soaring grey limestone cliffs; Musandam offers a raw experience of rugged and untouched terrain which only recently has opened up to the outside world.
Quaint villages, exciting roads, wilderness and marvelous landscapes where sea meets ridges allot for serene cultural experiences and adventure all in one destination. Amidst this rustic and unspoiled landscape, the coast also offers a spectacular marine diversity which includes dolphins, sharks, large rays, colourful corals, large lobsters, and even whale sharks.
