Worth visiting. Apart from the amazing views and boat ride, dolphins will surprise you with some acrobatics on the way to telegraph islands.

This is terrain like you have never seen before. From cave paintings to whole mountains of fossilised starfish. its a land that time forgot. We took a boat trip along the coast stopping to experience History at the telegraph island and then for an authentic Omani Meal. We spent a night at the Golden Tulip in Khasab and enjoyed our...

We love Khasab. We always go camping with a small group of friends. We hire a local to take us to one of the secluded beaches and set up camp there. The locals are very friendly and hospitable. The gentleman we always go with takes us to a few different beaches so we can choose. We go early and ask... More

An amazing and astonishing place full of natural beauty. The steep and monumentally high cliffs on both sides; the playful dolphins and the turquoise blue water makes this a very special place. We took a a half day Dhow boat tour and got everything we had hoped for. Highly recommend it.

We didn't really know what to expect from a trip to Musandam and its fjords, and our lasting impression is one of breathtaking scenery, rugged cliffs plunging into the blue sea and a local population with an innate instinct for hospitality. Add to that some little jewels like the 3400-year-old petroglyphs hidden away in a gorge at Wadi Qida, not... More

We visited here from Dubai as a day trip. You will fall in love with this vast scenery of sharp tall mountains edging into the blue green sea water, which you don't see anywhere else in the world. You will cruise around in the traditional boat and can swim in if you like. This place must be a secret spot... More

Omani Fjords in Mussandam are one of the best places to b seen for d perfect combination of fjords and sea side by side. They really provide a sense of tranquility. Whether you r driving down those roads or taking a boat ride, it's just amazing. Taking an evening boat ride during a full moon night, can't b described in... More

We loved every second of it. Rented a dhow with a captain and had the best day ever. Telegraph Island was one of the stops, very interesting history. We ate fresh caught fish, watched our captain catching it. Great experience and very authentic. Dove a ship wreck on the way back, and got back to Khasab before sunset. Highly recommend... More

One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited! We ordered the trip via Khasab tours, they came for us to Dubai (one man from Pakistan picked up us in front of our hotel - we were 2 girls, went alone and it was completely safe). The road was amazing, the mountains.... On the dhow we had a very... More

I took a day trip from Dubai. We rode a traditional Dhow boat up to a fjord. We docked int he fjord and swam from the boat, as well as taking a smaller craft to the beach on shore. It was an amazing experience.
