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.
