Musandam is a place well known to the locals and expats in UAE as a quick getaway whenever they want to take a break from the demands of their work. I have not the slightest idea about the place, though, until I joined a group tour (It was my first time to join a group tour,   BTW) headed to this Omani peninsula just about last week. From what I gather, Musandam peninsula is a part of the Sultanate of Oman, interestingly separated from the rest of its mother country by the United Arab Emirates. It is a mountainous peninsula boasting off beautiful and ragged coastlines.

The place has two points of interest – Al Khasab and Dibba. The latter is the one relatively closer to UAE making it the cheaper option if you’re coming from the Emirati. Securing an Omani Visa is also NOT necessary. Instead, a single day pass is being required which is usually secured and taken care of by the travel agency of your choice.

How To Book Your Tour

Spotting a cheap day tour to Musandam-Dibba is not really going to be that difficult since most of the travel agencies offer the tour at the same rate. However, I highly recommend Sky Musandam,because of their commendable service. Their tour includes a one day Omani pass, pick up and drop off in Dubai, welcome drinks/unlimited drinks on board (coffee, tea, water, juice and soda), buffet lunch (meat and vegetables) and exciting activities such as unlimited banana ride, swimming and snorkeling (gears included), fishing, riding a speedboat, and a cruise to the scenic view of Musandam’s coastline.
