Beautiful rocky islands not far from Muscat. You can enjoy blue sea and great snorkling in an area with limited access, therefore it's never too crowded. Would be nice also to camp overnight.

The coral and sea life were spectacular. The surrounding mountains added to the fun. Take a trip with a good guide. We booked through Viator.
