The overhang of the cliff takes the shape of a dog. The cave is in fact a projection and not really a cave to explore. But there are seats provided and from this point, the view of the beach below is superb.

Beautiful scenery and beach. Continue on for 20 km over the mountain for incredible views, on twisty good roads.

Marneef cave is only a short trip away from Mughsail Beach. There is free parking and easy access. I is peaceful and pretty. The blowholes only work during the khareef season or with rough seas.

Great place to spend a couple of hours. The views are spectacular and the geysers are nice too and since we visited the place during the khareef season the intensity of the geysers was high. Must visit while in Salalah.

The geysers' intensity depends on the season and in late Decemver they are not really impressive, but the place worths in any case a visit. The cliff on the sea are a really nice view, especially at the sunset, when we went. There were fishermen and seagulls flying all around. Recommended.

the views around there are beautiful and it is nice to go somewhere without the mass tourism. Not much information about the area and caves though.

After traveling in the hills and beaches on Indian ocean side we traveled our way to the tomb. It was at the top of the hill. The area was filled with nice trees and herd of camels greeted our team as we arrived.

Loved the natural geysers and the walk around the cave. The way towards the place is also very romantic and worth a lot of stops. Camel spotting is definite.

Most of the Dhofer mountains we drove through we saw many cave like openings every now and then in almost all of them. This particular cave is pretty deep yet with small opening. Interesting place to see.
