There is nothing much to see in the cave. It is open towards ocean. But maintenance is really good. If you walk a bit forward you can spot 3 blow holes. It's beautiful to see during high tide. Good place to spend an evening with friends or family.

Amazing Ocean waves and sound of waves are scary sometimes in right way.... :) Caves are not that interesting but the surrounding beach & Ocean is amazing.

This is near mushqail beach. Its not really a cave but lets assume it as one but when the the cave opens on the other end you enter paradise of the nature which is at its best. The mixture of natural greens and blues is worth a visit.

Really great, pure flowing water with fish, allot of bird life and simply green. Our tour guide was friendly with a sense of humor and extensive knowledge about he entire region. Naser Al Shahri is the best tour guide anyone can ask for.

A beautiful natural scenery at the very end of Mughsail beach. The rock of the cave is modelled by the wind and from here there is a path leading to the cliff. Amazing blows of water are sprayed from holes on the top of the cliff according to the strength of the waves underneath. A real nature wonder. From here... More

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
