Safa'iq Grave Site

Cemetery in Masirah Island

They are easy to miss, but the 300-year-old grave site at Safa’iq, just inland from the island road, is something of a unique sight, given the location. Look for small standing stones up the hill, 6km north of Sur Masirah. Two rocks are usually the only indication of a grave for men, three rocks for women, but some of the Safa’iq graves have surprisingly elaborate headstones.
