The capital of the Southern Oman Governorate of Dhofar, Salalah is more famously known for its Khareef (monsoon) festival during which tourists flock into the city to witness its captivating celebrations. However, there’s more you can see in this mesmerising city during your stay at one of the Salalah hotels.
Sultan Qaboos Mosque
Located within a driving distance from properties such as Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara, Sultan Qaboos Mosque is completed in 2001. It is one of the most popular of its kind in Oman and features two tall minarets and two domes.
Al Mughsail Beach
This scenic stretch of beach found towards the South of Oman is quite liked for its crystal-clear waters and soft white sands. Its beauty is increased by the picturesque mountains that surround it. As the strong surf crashes on to the rocks below, it also blows through the vents at the viewing deck above.
Considered the most beautiful of its kind in Oman, Taqah Castle was initially constructed as the residence of a tribal leader, who was also the grandfather of Sultan Qaboos’ mother. Nowadays, it houses several museums, showcasing various weapons and tools that aided the old Omani lifestyle.
Al Balid Archaeological Site
One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Oman, Al Balid Archaeological Site is a popular attraction in the country, vastly due to its incredible range of ruins.
