Oman

Positioned on the southeast corner of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, the Sultanate of Oman is often described as an island between two seas - of water to the east and of sand to the west. Indeed, the seas have helped define Oman's history; shipping copper to Mesopotamia and frankincense to China and whilst the ports of Muscat and Salalah continue their long tradition of maritime trading, Oman's seas are nowadays also renowned for their sparkling turquoise waters rich in underwater flora and marine life. Lining these inviting waters is a 1000-mile coastline dotted with pristine, white sandy beaches and secluded, intimate coves. Whilst the glorious coastline and imposing resorts define Oman holidays, the rugged mountains and desert sands of the interior are a sight and experience to behold.
