Such a stunning place and very peaceful. It is interesting to learn about the tiny fishing villages there, to gaze at the incredible scenery and watch the fabulous dolphins play around your dhow. Some nice snorkelling is also possible in places. for a relaxing day out that is a million miles from Dubai, you can't go wrong!

We went camping here over the Eid period as the few hotels were all full. The main Khasab beach was packed with hundreds of men so we had to camp at a quieter beach 20km back towards the boarder. Plenty of places in the mountains to camp also, however was still a bit hot at night. The highlight of the... More

Really, really beautiful scenery. Amazing fjords. We went out on a half day dhow trip organised by the Diwan Al Ameer hotel in Khasab. The highlight of our trip was a dolphin which came alongside our dhow for a good 5 minutes but we also saw various pods of dolphins further away. Such an Incredible experience. The dhow anchored off... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this boat trip, seeing dolphins and scenery, and snorkelling. It was worth taking the whole day - it was lovely coming back as the sun was going down. Very relaxing. Also a good lunch.

Great place for diving, as this place has not(yet) been ripped apart by human stupidity. A lot of different fish (big ones, too) including a lot of rays. Only a few sharks, as mankind has killed most of them. On a full week of diving, we saw two (2) sharks. Ten years ago, they had sharks on every dive. Go... More

No visit to the UAE would be complete without a trip into the Fjords of Mussandam at Khasab!!! For a very reasonable price hop onto a local Dhow and experience the magic that is the fjords. Dolphins following the Dhows coming right up next to the boats are only the start of the trip. Snorkeling at Telegraph Island immerses you... More
