For those looking for a destination living a slower pace of life for your next family holiday, the country of Oman offers a slightly less ostentatious, more authentic and untouched Arabic experience than the more popular Dubai in neighbouring United Arab Emirates. Framed by the towering Hajar Mountains, a lush green south, golden desert and sparkling waters, Oman is still widely undiscovered and offers a perfect combination of sun soaking, adventure and rich Arabian culture.

The bustling capital of Muscat’s is home to an abundance of colourful souks, full of hidden treasures, from the finest silk and silverware to exquisite perfumes, you may even find the odd genie’s lamp! Heading out to the coast, Oman’s crystal-clear waters are a haven for divers, with a great variety of colourful sea life and for most of the year, great visibility and calm currents. A nature lovers paradise, whether you are staying in Muscat or in the glorious isolation of the Musandam Peninsula, there is a good chance of seeing hawksbill and green turtles around their nesting season in July – November.
