Marneef Cave, Salalah

4.1
Overlooking the scenic Mughsail beach stands Marneef Cave, actually a large rocky outcrop carved in limestone by the sea, known for its picturesque coastal views and nearby blowholes. Take a stroll along the beach on your visit to the cave, have a picnic, and enjoy the sight of waves crashing on the soft sand and rocks. Depending on the season and the strength of the water current, you might see the blowholes dramatically spraying large volumes of water back into the sea.

  • About a 30-40 minute drive out of Salalah (depending on the location of your hotel) this place is a must see. The cave itself is less cave, and more overhanging rock, but is spectacular. Footpaths hav...  more »

  • It is a place where you can admire a beautiful view of the sea. The peculiarity lies in the fact that, if there is heavy seas, on the plot accessible to visitors, you create an overhead shower with sea water. So if the sea is calm, not worth the stop.

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.
