Musandam Governorate

Escape the city buzz and be in awe of this natural, mountainous region

Along the coast to the north from Dubai lies this governorate of Oman, jutting out into the Straight of Hormuz. A year round favourite for denizens escaping from the city, the mountainous area is famed for its desolate natural beauty, resembling the glacier-carved coasts of Polar Regions. Some three hours drive – plus a short stop on the border post – puts you in Musandam, its winding mountain roads and otherworldly lagoon views worth the drive alone. For adventurists looking to get out there, traditional Dhow cruises on the azure waters, plus dives and hiking give plenty of reasons to stick around.
