Oman is one of the most beautiful places in the Arab world. It is astonishing the many different kinds of geography that can be found in one nation, and there’s even more beneath her waters.

The Daymaniyat Islands

Located a stone’s throw away from Muscat is an archipelago of rocky landmasses that make up the Daymaniyat Islands. This area was Oman’s first marine reserve and is a renowned diving hotspot, and one can find Leopard/Whale Sharks, and large shoals of fish.

The Musandam Peninsula

Musandam is Oman’s northernmost region and has waters that are rich in nutrients, which is why there is a bounty of marine life to explore. Coral reefs, rays, sea turtles, and sharks can easily be found here.
