Musandam Peninsula

Explore the captivating Musandam Peninsula, a hidden treasure of Oman, boasting stunning fjords and quaint fishing villages that offer a serene escape into this enchanting and secluded paradise.

Musandam Peninsula, a stunning extension of the Arabian Peninsula, is a captivating destination that straddles the Strait of Hormuz, separating the Gulf of Oman from the Persian Gulf. This northeastern tip of Oman, dubbed the “Norway of Arabia,” is known for its remarkable khors (rocky inlets), quaint villages, and dramatic mountain roads. The peninsula’s unique geography, with its rugged terrain and limited road access, has shaped its distinct cultural identity and preserved its natural beauty.  One can well understand why the Six Senses chose this location for their fabulous Zighy Bay resort! Visitors can explore the area’s isolated settlements, accessible primarily by sea, or embark on an adventure through the region’s cross-country tracks with a 4×4 vehicle. The capital city of Khasab serves as the gateway to the Musandam Peninsula, inviting travelers to discover its breathtaking scenery, cultural eccentricities, and strategic importance as the southern guard of the Strait of Hormuz.  The nearest airport is Dubai rather than Muscat.
