Oman is a truly fantastic family holiday destination. While, it may not be the first place to spring to mind when thinking about family travel, it certainly deserves to be.

Starting off with the beach part of Oman, enjoy dolphin and whale-watching trips, water sports galore or simply make the most of the long stretches of sandy beaches.

After a few days by the sea, get a change of scene on the family holiday by going on a privately guided 4x4 safari into the interior, taking in beautiful mountain panoramas, oasis villages and fantastic medieval forts that look just how forts should. Driving on to the desert known as the Wahiba Sands, your family can ride camels across the dunes and spend the night at a Bedouin tented camp.

After a sleep-out under the stars, head back towards the coast of Oman via wadis where you can cool off with a refreshing swim in natural freshwater pools. Heading back to the coast, you can take a boat trip on a traditional dhow, go snorkelling off deserted beaches and, at certain times of year, watch turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs or new hatchlings making their way down to the surf by moonlight.

Not bad, Sinbad. An Oman family holiday ticks all the boxes.
