Must Do things when on a Vacay in Salalah Oman – Activities and Locations to Include in Your Trip to Oman

Salalah is known for the lush green lands and the seasonal waterfalls but there is so much more to this mysterious land apart from those.


Museum of the land of Frankincense

Known to have the best Frankincense trees in the world, the Omanis are extremely proud of this factor as you can hear it in their voice when they speak. The museum of the land of Frankincense is a great activity to do at the beginning in order to get a glimpse to the past, present and future of EKKO.


Al Husn Souq

It is a must to visit a Souq when you are in a middle-eastern country as these Souqs are a great way to get a glimpse to the life of the locals. Most souqs are occupied by male elders who have gathered for an evening of board games and chats. The Al Husn Souq is the oldest, most famous and the liveliest Souq in Salalah even to date. The Souqs are also a great location to go shopping for souvenirs and other knick-knacks that you want to take back as gifts.


Al Mughsail Beach

The Al Mughsail Beach is mostly popular for the natural blowholes and the serene beach. The beach is about six kilometres of a stunning white sandy beach which is perfect for a calm and peaceful getaway. The natural blowholes are a delightful experience as you get to witness the difference in the spray depending on the force of the waves. For customers staying at Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara the beach is close by which makes frequent visits convenient to the Salalah Beach. Resort, the architecture and construction also add to the view of the beach.


Al Marneef Cave

Not your usual cave that you walk into and everything becomes dark. This cave is more like an entranceway to a beautiful location which is perfectly suited for outdoor picnics and family time. The cave is located in an area that is surrounded by many trees which makes the atmosphere quite nice and enjoyable even during the months of warm weather.


Salalah Tourism Festival

The Salalah Tourism festival is an event that gains popularity each year. It is generally held during the Khareef Season which is the Monsoon season in Oman which falls around the beginning of July to end of August. During this time most of the locals love to get out and about as they are able to enjoy the most delightful time of the year due to the weather. Arab families like to come to the festival to enjoy the day with their extended families. Some of the locations have rides, replicas of villages which are educational for children and adults alike.


Khor Rori

This is a well-known archaeological site which is being excavated by an Italian team even to date. It is known to be connected to the 1st Century CE which belonged to the kingdom of Hadramawt.
