Tour to Musandam
This a full-day guided tour from Dubai to Musandam, on the Strait of Hormuz.
The Musandam peninsula is a narrow area of land that sticks out into the sea. There are many small communities living in the mountains on the peninsula. These communities are very old; some have been there for centuries. Many coastal villages can only be reached by boat. The population of approximately 29,000 is mainly in the capital, Khasab, in the north, and the much smaller port town of Dibba on the east coast.
We will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning in our coach and take you on an exciting day trip to Musandam via
Ras Al Khaimah on the Emirates highway. You can photograph the golden sands of the desert and the beautiful Hajar mountains. When you arrive on the east coast in Dibba, you will board our traditional dhow and sail along the coast. We will stop at one of the beautiful beaches to relax and explore.
After a delicious lunch back on board, there will be time to have a swim in the warm waters. You may also see dolphins during the cruise. We will drive you back to your hotel in time for your evening meal.
