Known for its dramatic mountain and fjord-filled scenery, the Musandam Peninsula is an exclave of Oman in the very north of the country, best reached from Dubai. This landscape lends itself to countless adventurous activities that can be enjoyed en famille, and we can recommend the very best, depending on your family’s needs.
If you're a family that enjoys being on the water, you can
explore the incredible fjords by traditional Omani dhow boat,
stopping off for swims in the refreshing water and the chance to
try your hand at fishing. Or, if you'd rather be under the water
than on it, there is plenty of fantastic marine life around the
peninsula to discover on diving and snorkelling excursions. Look
out for underwater creatures of all shapes and sizes - from macro
life up to whale sharks - and witness the excitement of your little
ones as they explore this watery wonderland. Despite stronger
currents in places, the area is a great spot for beginner divers,
making it fun for all the family.
Back on dry land, the rugged mountains are a playground for
adventure enthusiasts, with plenty of opportunities for trekking,
mountain biking, 4x4 off-road journeys and rock climbing. When it
comes to adventurous youngsters who need to be kept active on
holiday, you can't get much better than the Musandam Peninsula for
a luxury family holiday.
In terms of hotels, it's hard to beat the
Six Senses Zighy Bay when it comes to family-friendly
credentials. With the rugged Hajar Mountains acting as a dramatic
backdrop, the hotel has everything you could want in terms of
facilities and activities on offer.
Whether you're heading to Oman for an
adventure-filled holiday or a relaxing October half term, our
experts are on hand to create the perfect tailor-made luxury family
holiday to the Musandam Peninsula.
