From Muscat, the best diving is around the Daymaniyat Islands, just to the west of the capital. The islands are uninhabited, with a bird sanctuary and sea waters surrounding the islands, they are rich in sealife ranging from dolphins to turtles.
In Musandam, the Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay is the perfect base for exploration of some of the best diving in the world, with the widest biodiversity of marine creatures measured anywhere in the world. Some of the diving is a bit more technical, thanks to strong currents, but this is still an ideal place for beginners and experts alike.
