A Day At Dibba - Musandam
The day trip to the scenic town of Dibba situated in the Musandam peninsula will set you on a diverse holiday of enthusiasm and experience both by land and sea. On the way to Dibba, have a picturesque drive with photo stops at the Carpet market and in the Masafi mountains area. Board a traditional Arabian wooden dhow from the Dibba harbor for the cruise.
The gracious and attentive crew on board will make sure you have an unforgettable journey in this beautiful part of Arabia. As you lie back and relax sipping Arabic coffee and tea on Bedouin style pillows and carpets, it is more akin to being part of Sindbad story than being on a boat.
Approximate time 09:00 Am depart by traditional Omani Dhow for a full-day cruise to the spectacular “Fjords of Musandam”. During the cruise the dhow is anchored at the famous Telegraph Island, where you can swim and snorkel in the pleasant clear waters. Lunch, refreshments and fruit are served on board. There is also a possibility to see dolphins along the way...
