Welcome to Southern Oman


There are many possible day trips from Salalah, including Job’s Tomb, the heroic town of Mirbat with its beautiful beaches, and Mughsail, famed for some violent blowholes in the undercliff and for nearby groves of wild frankincense.

If you are travelling during the khareef and can put up with the unremittingly tedious journey from Muscat or Nizwa, it is worth going overland to Salalah across the largely featureless Al Wusta Region and returning by plane. This is the best way to sense the full spectacle of the khareef across the top of the jebel; after eight hours of gravel plains, Dhofar seems like a little miracle.
