This large cave is located near the Mughsail beach itself.One needs to climb a steep slope to reach the cave. Beautiful views of the beach could be shot from here.There are green hilly areas around, which are perfect for taking pictures.

It's not really a cave, more like a quarter of a cave as there is some shadow, but still it's an interesting place with the blowholes. For me it was the first time in my life to see them.

We went not on right weather or season yet it's a place must visit when you're here, nice long beaches and waves that comes and hit the cave and the sounds -sometimes makes you fear but that's natural great experience

The water is splashing out of holes on the rock causing that phenomenon. It is a must in Salalah speacially that it is pretty close to al-Maghseel beach What... More

Very nice experience. Lots of tourists, of them standing on top of the blow holes to experience the gush of water that comes from the sea. During our visit, a lot of fog covered the greenery of the nearby hills.

A wonderful site to visit and popular with tourists. The nearby cave, Al Marneef, and the "blow-holes" were impressive. It was fun watching the kids feeling jittery when hearing the roar of the sea welling up through the carved out channels in the rock.
