Oman At A Glance
Perched on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, the Sultanate of Oman’s stark beauty and vastly contrasting landscapes have enchanted growing numbers of tourists each year. With its magnicent desert, secret oases and breathtaking mountain ranges, Oman is an alluring destination. A tropical underwater paradise lies beneath the turquoise sea, caressing the white sandy beaches that adorn the country’s stunning 3,165 km coastline.
Alongside this natural wealth is Oman’s rich culture, which blends with modern infrastructure and historical features that span over 7,000 years. Grand forts, exquisite palaces and mystical souqs are sights to behold in the capital, Muscat. A visit to Oman makes you feel right at home from the time you arrive, until the moment you leave. The Sultanate is full of opportunities for adventure, including fascinating tours with an Arabian flavour.
Oman’s coastline is a paradise for
explorers. Its abundance of wildlife includes whales, dolphins, turtles,
seahorses, and amingos.
Underwater, its incredible marine life is found close to the water’s surface.
Sands and deserts occupy the remaining area; these include two large sand deserts – The Wahiba Sands known as Rimalat Al Wahiba and part
of the Empty Quarter (Rub Al Khali).
Here you can learn about Bedouin culture, camp under a dome of stars and experience the beauty of dawn in the desert.
The mountains cover approximately 15% of the country’s land mass.
Oman’s main mountain range is the 10,000 foot Al Hajar, which runs from Musandam in the North to the extreme limit of the Arabian Peninsula, Ras Al Had.
Tropical climate is what Oman is known for whilst still subject to seasonal changes. From October through to April, the Sultanate oers a
lovely climate, with an average
temperature of 23oC. Combined with welcoming hospitality, warm seas and
stunning landscapes, you can see why tourism in Oman is a growing industry.
