Loved it.

Went with my cousins and uncle. It was great. Close to mugshail beach. There is a place where water comes from a bore hole. Awesome scenery. Worth the visit.

Its located near the mughsail beach. You have to climb a stair and it is not really a cave. Its like rock wall mountain and behind that you will find the beautiful beach with green and blue view

It's a strangely shaped overhang with a deep recess and a bench. The views over the ocean at the top of the hill are spectacular. It's an easy climb up on a well tended path and the views to distant moiuntains hugging the coast, are beautiful. Well worth the visit.

An "open" cave, really an overhang high above the water. In high tide there is water spouting from blowholes. Other times very hot with little shade. A restaurant is supposed to be opening with a toilet but I wouldn't hold my breath for it. Locals like to picnic here.

It has a lovely untouched beach, unique cliffs and the water come out of the rocks like blowholes flying high in the sky. Quite impressive and a really lovely place to take photos.

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.
