Ras Madrakah is an excellent day-trip opportunity for anyone visiting Duqm or on the way to Salalah (through Hasik).
The place offers fantastic camping spots overlooking black mountains and golden sand beaches. Also great bird spotting and off-roading, with nice weather even during the hot summer months.
Our second trip to Salalah to visit few places that we missed during our 2019 Khareef trip.
What a great destination for a day trip from Salalah? On the way to Shaat you can also stop at Fazayah beach and Mughsail. There are 3 highlights to enjoy here: the lookouts, hidden beach, and sinkhole.
About 1 hour away from Salalah there is a beautiful cliff and beach (Efftalqut). A short, but requiring 4×4, drive from the beach you can spot an abandoned ship. Quite a surreal view.
Nested between magnificent mountains this is a perfect location to enjoy a great sunny day or an overnight stay.
Dimaniyat Islands, Oman – Camping, snorkeling… turtles and sea life
Pros: the whitest sand in the world, beautiful beaches worth visiting anytime of the year, Hyams Beach, Booderee National Park, Honeymoon Bay, Point Perpendicular, and few other interesting places to visit nearby including Pigeon Mountain in Morton National Park Cons: busy during public holidays
We visited Efftalqut Beach as part of our Khareef 2019 trip. The place is a great lookout of Efftalqut Beach.
Mughsail Beach is one of the most touristic places that we chose for our Khareef 2019 trip.
It’s quite challenging to find a comprehensive recommendation or a list of what to visit in Salalah and around. The best time is obviously around Khareef (monsoon) season, which is an unique chance to experience rain and fog in Oman.
