Things To Do In Oman

Oman is situated in Southwest Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea. Its strategic location has made it an important trade hub throughout history, as it is located on the sea routes between India and East Africa, China and Southeast Asia, and Europe and the Far East. It’s also known for its white sand beaches – perfect for a weekend getaway!

Dibba is a popular beach destination in Oman

There are a lot of popular beach destinations in Oman, and Dibba is one of the most popular. It’s a small fishing town with about 4,000 people and was a popular spot for pirates in the past. Would you like to try windsurfing in the Nejd or the Red Sea? Oman has a few options if you love the ocean. Dibba offers beautiful white sand beaches on the Red Sea, while locations like Jhelum offer spectacular white sand beaches on the Nejd. Selecting the perfect destination can be overwhelming, and choosing your next destination can feel hopeless. After you make up your mind on which destination you want to try, you need to research further, try more places, select the best one, and then finally book your trip. It can get quite complex and overwhelming, on top of not knowing which destination is right for you.

What to bring on your trip to Dibba

If you’re planning a trip to Dibba, here’s a list of what you should bring. Some of the items are just useful things to have with you wherever you go, while others are particularly useful for Dibba, where there aren’t a lot of places where you can easily access supplies. First Thing’s First: Bring Clean Water Bring a large water bottle to use as a container. Don’t forget to bring some soap and gel or another cleansing agent as well.  Pack More Than One Backpack Don’t find yourself in a tight spot and having to carry your toothbrush and toothpaste in one tiny pocket while carrying your flashlight and a pack full of footprints (that’s a lot) later? Pack another backpack! Having extras like these is truly appreciated by the locals — more so than you might think.  In Case You’re Stuck… Have a pen and some scissors with you. Need some portable charger? Grab some; a lot of someones have extras lying around.  Front Desk Services There are lots of options if you’re stuck in town for an extended period of time. During your stay in Dibba, you might need to go to the front desk for things like directions, personalized greeting cards, etc. There’s someone there to answer phone calls, and they might be able to send you directions via their computer or phoneshell. You shouldn’t have to make a lot of calls to coordinate basic needs, but it’s nice to be prepared.  Late-Night Reviews Most hotels will say that in case of a stay over a certain length of time, they offer their late-night staff (guests) a free stay in exchange for recommendations. I would strongly recommend being thorough in your bedtime recommendations. And strongly recommend having maintenance business cards, and having a good idea of which maintenance technicians tend to be working stays longer than you.

How to get from Muscat to Dibba

Get in a taxi and tell the taxi driver where you want to go. The taxi driver will help you figure out how to get from Muscat to Dibba. Go to the left, and take the right to go to the beach. The hare is quite shy and usually only comes out after 2 pm. You can pay local Omani boys 50 micro-kesms to take a photo with them. While you’re looking at the sunset, throw a handful of dates your way! Dates ripen around 5:30 pm, so you won’t have a problem finding them for a snack. There’s also a 22-foot turtle hanging out on the beach. It’s a shy turtle and doesn’t come out much apart from the following time. You can pet him and feed him, though, for a measly fee of KES 8500 (approx $0.18 USD). We were staying in a boutique hotel on Muscat’s main beach, called ”Hilltop,” which looks out over the Arabian Sea. The hotel located in the bahramian end of the beach, and it’s known for its rich history and breathtaking views of the sea and the surrounding mountains. He directed us to pastries inside the reception, and a couple of beers (25 kes Microsoft gift voucher) was just enough to welcome us. Although the hotel is comprised of former bahramian mansions from the 19th century, it is now a boutique backpacker hostel and has efficient internet access. Although this is an easy place to get a bite to eat, the traditional Omani breakfast consists of a fragrant, sweet combination of rice porridge, egg, and tomato on a minuscule spoon with honey.
