About Khasab, Musandam
Khasab, the capital of the Musandam peninsula, is located 500 kilometers from Muscat and is dubbed the “Norway of Arabia”. Mighty jebels (mountains) rise up in this unique and rugged locale. Apart from the beauty that lies above the waters, Musandam also has a rich and colourful underwater world, teeming with varied marine life, providing spectacular snorkeling, Khasab Musandam Oman Diving and Khasab Musandam Oman fishing.
The breath-taking beauty of the mountains, the unspoilt beaches and steep wadis (dry river beds) are aplenty around Khasab. Majestic fjords, dotted with islands and the crystal clear waters shimmering in the sun along with historic Khasab Fort, Telegraph Island and a multitude of underwater adventures make for a truly memorable holiday.
The best way to experience the idyllic beauty of Musandam is by a sea trip on a traditional wooden dhow. Many species of sea birds roam and nest around the cliffs at Khawr Ghubb Ali and dolphins can be sighted near Jebel Harim, the highest peak in Musandam. Khasab also has a number of markets and shops with goods from nearby Iran and locally-made pottery.
