Well i really didnt see the cave, it was just a very very huge rock on the top, dont know if there was any entry from any side of it, saw ppl climbing on top of it which was not very easy for a family to do,

Cave, sea and mountains behind is an ultimate contrast for a perfect picture. Blowholes is icing on the cake. Could be humid sometimes and you wont be able to stand there for more than 10 minutes.

Avoid to visit this place in khareef season specially after Eid al Fitr holidays. ( july august) I was there in august and it was overcrowded. Huge traffic jam when trying to park the car, lots of people and very dirty. Everybody throwing rubbish everywhere its very disappointing.

This spot was not initially in our plans, but when we saw the excitement this caused on tripadvisor we decided to take a closer look. It is very pretty and worth the stop. That said the best part is people watching especially the kids as they tempt fate by standing directly over the blowholes and then go screaming when the... More

Excellent climate during the Khareef season where it was cloudy and drizzling. Lot of places for taking nice pictures. Unique experience seeing the blowholes where water blows up with tremendous force periodically.

I visited this place during Khareef , approx 35 to 40 km from WEST Salalah . An amazing view of the cliffs and sea and great view of the white shoreline . The Blowholes are amazing , during khareef avoid weekends. There is no entrance fee to the facility

Must see place in salalah. When we were there it was cloudy and drizzling. However that's what made it even more beautiful for us from dubai. It was however quiet crowded, which took away some of its charm.

Its something you have to experience.. The natural blowholes where the rough waves of arabian sea woozes out and shower up on you. Make sure u have spare dress.. Do get drenched.. You have facilities for rock climbing and treckking up the near by mountains. Even though near by this location you cannot bath sea due to rocky shore and... More

This by far is the most attractive attraction in Salalah . With its whole package of caves , beaches and blow holes it makes a pretty picture. I have been to Salalah 4 times but what keeps me coming back here are these caves. You will see people flying kites , taking pictures and plain smiling. I didn't catch a... More
