Lying along the beautiful and unspoilt southern seaboard of Arabia with its ancient fortified villages and fertile palm groves, is the legendary home of Sinbad the Sailor and source of precious frankincense since biblical times.
Oman is a stunning country both on land and underwater. Beyond the colourful waters of Muscat lies a vast country to explore. From its beaches to its high plateaus, there are so many forts, isolated villages, pottery souks, wadis, sand dunes and hidden date plantations to discover that you probably won’t have time to see them all in one trip!
Oman is not only a place of outstanding beauty; it is also a safe and fairly free country. There are no major concerns walking around on your own, even when visiting the souks. There are no restrictions for female visitors regarding dress code, but it is definitely best to avoid very short skirts and overly generous décolleté!
The only restrictions apply when visiting mosques – in particular the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque – where both men and women must wear a long-sleeved top and trousers (or skirt) to enter. Women will be asked to cover their head with a scarf.
There are a number of high-quality holiday resorts and dive centres – please read on for some information on them, and contact us for further information on rates and to book.
