Marneef Cave, Salalah

(4.1/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Do not miss beautiful sounds of the sea which makes Ricochet off the rock. Very very nice place. Do imperatively during or after the Khareef, water surge to almost 100 m of height to the holes in the rock.

  • A place that you simply must see in Salalah. We went there in the two pairs of a rented car from Fanar-this option several times cheaper than purchasing the optional tours Office. I urge you strongly to going from Salalah travel 2-3 miles away in the mountains-there you will find plenty of places where you can safely Park your car and make a beautiful shot with views of the mountains, the sea and the cliffs. Later, about hour layover at Marneef Cave-very nice prepared the infrastructure for tourists-promenades, bridges-pleasant to be niches while enjoying the area. You can also spend a few tens of minutes to go through this wonderful beach is located right next to it.

  • The drive there was amazing and the cave well so amazing to see with its surrounding view of the ocean and if you get the time right the blow holes are also in the same location. Amazing drive
