Oman is a truly fantastic family vacation destination. While, it may not be the first place to spring to mind when thinking about family travel, it certainly deserves to be.
Starting off with the beach part of Oman, enjoy dolphin and
whale-watching trips, water sports galore or simply make the most
of the long stretches of sandy beaches.
After a few days by the sea, get a change of scene on the family
holiday by going on a privately guided 4x4 safari into the
interior, taking in beautiful mountain panoramas, oasis villages
and fantastic medieval forts that look just how forts should.
Driving on to the desert known as the Wahiba Sands, your family can
ride camels across the dunes and spend the night at a Bedouin
After a sleep-out under the stars, head back towards the coast
of Oman via wadis where you can cool off with a refreshing swim in
natural freshwater pools. Heading back to the coast, you can take a
boat trip on a traditional dhow, go snorkelling off deserted
beaches and, at certain times of year, watch turtles coming ashore
to lay their eggs or new hatchlings making their way down to the
surf by moonlight.
Not bad, Sinbad. An Oman family holiday ticks all the boxes.
