WHEN TO GO TO OMAN

The Oman weather is most pleasant between October – April, and May and September are still great months to visit, although temperatures can reach 40º C. June, July and August are particularly hot in the coastal areas, but about 10-15º C lower in the mountain regions. Rainfall varies according to the region, but stays low throughout the year. Oman is an ideal destination for winter sunshine – but really works as a year-round destination if you don’t mind the hot summer.
