Al Mughsail Beach, Salalah

4.7
Work on your tan at Al Mughsail Beach, a wide stretch of white sand fringed with sheer limestone cliffs. Take a stroll on the seaside boardwalk or soak up the sun on the remote sandy shore, as the waves crash into the rocky outcrops. A bird-watching and water sports haven, the pristine beach is known for its blowholes, eroded openings in the cliff side that shoot out water at high speed, an especially impressive sight during monsoon season.

Where to stay in Salalah

The main hotels of Salalah sit close to the sea, enjoying extensive views of the coast, private beaches, pools, and fine-dining restaurants. Some particularly luxurious resorts can be found along the coastal roads, with sculpted grounds and onsite malls. Inland, where the real city sits, you'll find some similarly luxurious hotels. However, there's a much greater choice of standard options, with a pool perhaps, a restaurant for sure, and comfortable rooms. Rental apartments along 23rd July Street provide perhaps the best budget-friendly options in town.
