Marneef Cave, Salalah
(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I'm not sure why this is a separate entry from Mughsail beach as they are collocated. It's not really a cave but an interesting rock formation. Benches to sit and enjoy the breeze. Great views.
