Introducing Salalah. This colourful subtropical city, a 1hr 15min flight from Muscat, is set to be the next hot pick for beach bucket lists. Salalah’s stunning white sand beaches are surrounded by lush vegetation and tropical landscapes known as the ‘green region’, a world away from the countries barren desert interior. Visit between September and May to avoid the monsoon season – to which Salalah of course owes its flourishing flora and fauna. To add a touch of culture to your beach holiday, visit the Museum of Frankincense and learn about this fascinatingly fragrant story from a bygone era.
