Coastline is dramatic and worth a boat trip to explore the scenery. Snorkelling excellent too. Beware the influx of day trippers from Dubai who seem to arrive at lunchtime but leave pretty quickly.

If you are in the Ras Al-Khaimah area, do yourself a favour and take the drive to Khasab in Oman; it's absolutely stunning with perpendicular rock formations and crystal clear fjords. The border crossing is painless and fast. Take plenty of water and a picnic/ lunchbox as there are no shops along the route.

The fjords of Musandam are amazing - stunning scenery, clear waters, and dolphins racing the dhows... a wonderful experience!

Just returned from Dubai. Whilst there we took a three day trip to Musandam with Khasab Tours. The mountain tour and Dhow cruise to the "fjord" (loads of dolphins) were spectacular although the winter weather meant the days were cloudy but warm. We stayed at what was formally the Golden Tulip Hotel, now part of the Atana Group - highly... More

Excellent day trip from Dubai. Tips: If going in winter bring plenty of layers. Summer be ready to be hot and definitely swim! Keep enough time for the border crossings and enjoy the drive. Don't have too high expectations and just enjoy it along with the amazing scenery. www.khasabtours.com

One hundred and five people found this cruise excellent? Really? Were they all geologists? Obsessed with rocks, rocks and more rocks? I admit, the history of this place is interesting, but I fell asleep in the sun, despite the fact that I'm small enough to slip through the railing on top of the boat. Our guide did occasionally come upstairs... More

Beautiful fjords, dolphins, clear water, relaxing environment, very friendly and relaxed people. But don't expect Khasab to be a very developed touristic town, which can be both positive and negative. It is certainly authentic and we've enjoyed our stay very much!!

First of all a word of warning. If you come from the UAE, consider that the border crossing may take more than an hour. For us it was around 90 minutes. We took the tour with the Musandam Sea Adventure. With them, you don't pay in advance and that is probably a good thing because even though we were delayed... More
