Musandam

 

Musandam is an Oman peninsula that juts into the Strait of Hormuz from the Arabian Peninsula.

The rugged coastline resembles the glacier-carved coasts of fjord regions, only in this case the process was shaped by the movement of Earth’s crust.

While Musandam is part of Oman, it is separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates. This made access difficult in the past, but new high-speed ferry service between Muscat and Musandam has greatly improved connections.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
