Come visit the caves and blowholes and maybe even spot some sea turtles at play! Loved the scenery and exploring the large park. Plenty to see here.

Its a nice clean area where you can park your car and have a snak (it was closed due to Ramadan) . Its mazing nature and waves , it shows the power of nature.

I , Cynthia TREDOUXvisited the MARNEEF CAVES during 2012 with my now late boyfriend, Tony Stark! We were driving all over Oman and found the Marneef Caves, the BLOW HOLES fascinating. The little restaurant close to the caves, could however been checked as it was not what I expected to see and was not CLEAN as far as the preparation... More

It's an interesting place to visit from the beach. My 4 year old was convinced that there was a dragon in the blow holes because of the noise! He was further convinced when he saw the fine spray (smoke from the dragon) shoot out of the blow hole. The rock formations are interesting and dramatic - but I must have... More

The cave is situated next to AlMughasayl beach with the blow holes to watch. It is very clean, easy to access with either stairs or ramps. We had it to ourselves in mid-May, and what a great experience. No crowds and simply beautifully in its rugged play of sea and land.

The coastline here is big beautiful and dramatic. On the day we were here the blow holes were in good form with tourists standing over the grates they come through daring each other until the next water spout came up! I can see why locals like to spend time in this area and rent the tents along the beach.

Visited in mid April and the famous blow-holes were in rare form: three were active. This is a gorgeous spot to visit - with an interesting walk under dramatic overhanging rock/cave formations from the carpark (which has a small restaurant/restrooms etc. overlooking the sea) to the blow-hole area on the other side. Miles and miles of some of the most... More
