Top 5 Beaches in Oman you have to visit - Kickback with fruits and sunshine!

Oman is a wonderfully beautiful place that has some gorgeous beaches and some delicious seasonal fruit, let's look at some of the best beaches to explore in Oman.

1

Tiwi Beach

Tiwi beach is often regarded as the complete package. It has its breathtaking beauty along with history and nature all rolled in one. The beach is unspoilt with gorgeous white sand and divine clear mountain water, crabs, rays and mini rock pools. If you're looking for a fun activity here, try snorkelling or take a walk amongst its banana trees, beautifully rich green villages or even its natural plantations. The towering mountains here make for a fantastic backdrop. One unforgettable view is the scenery over the village that points out towards the sea. Tiwi Beach is not a well-known tourist hotspot and thus is an absolute must see.

Bandar Jissah Beach

Massive and a true sight to behold, Bandar Jissah Beach is surrounded by some beautiful cliffs, mountains, caves and beautiful sweeping coastal roads. One of the best sights is the blue water against its white sand with splendid scenery that is material for some insanely beautiful photographs. The soft sand and the warm sea will invite you in for a truly sensational experience. To truly elevate this experience, you can take a catamaran out sailing or even hire a kayak to explore the area. You can easily check out any Muscat h-otel for a great stay while you visit Bandar Jissah Beach. One example would be the Al Falaj Hotel which is a mere 15 minutes away from the beach.

Ras Al Hadd Beach

Ras Al Hadd is also known as the Turtle Beach. It is located towards the eastern tip of Oman and is by the port town. The most popular reason many visit this spectacular area is for the Ras Al Hadd Turtle Reserve, which covers 120 square kilometres of beaches and coastal lands. The protected area of the reserve annually hosts around 6000 to 13000 green turtles. The turtles arrive from the Arabian Gulf, the Somali coast and remote areas of the Red Sea. Female turtles find their way back to their birthplace to lay eggs on the beach. Peak laying season for the turtles is between June and November. It is an absolutely beautiful scene to watch unfold as these little critters hatch from their eggs and waddle their way towards the sea.

Mughsayl Beach

Mughasyl Beach is a hidden beach in Salalah, surrounded by mountains and caves. It is located towards the Yemeni border along the coastline of southern Oman. A key highlight is the brilliant blowholes that have been created from partially collapsed caves, which explode massive fountains of sea water. Banana plantations and coconut groves are some of the sights you'll see which grow right up to the water's edge. This scenic beach truly rivals those of the Caribbean because of its warm wonderfully blue waters and powder like sand.
