Discover The Musandam peninsula Oman

The Musandam peninsula - a large strategic zone which controls the straight of Ormuz, is separated from the Omani territory by a territorial zone belonging to the Emirate of Sharjat. It is the fjords which make Musandam so beautiful; stretching over 10 miles and surrounded by desert mountains towering at an altitude of over 6,562 ft, they form an ideal setting for a mini-cruise on a dhow. The best cruise is the one leaving from Khasab which allows you to sail up the fjord of Khawr Ash Shamm. The cruise lasts for a day and swimming, snorkelling and visits to the tiny fishermen's villages are the activities on the program. The fjords, which are unique natural heritage, make Musandam an absolute ?must-see'.
