    Very scenic beach, worth the long drive from Salalah! It's also worth continuing to drive a bit along the coastal road for the view.

    What a place...the road there is a bit difficult, 4x4 better but I have seen sedans going on it.
    We went there in February which is off season in Salalah but the weather was perfect 28-30 C, water perfect, clean, very few people. First day was no one, second time we went there were a couple of cars.
    The rocks give the landscape a very photographical feeling, coupled with the colour of the water...paradise.

    Nice little museum, covering the history of Oman. Excarvations next to the museum are ok (if you are interested in history), but not extremely special.

    This is one of the main attractions near Salalah. The beach has stunning views & good photo spots. The blowhole is something different & would excite the kids. This place doesn't have enough shade, so longer stay during day time isn't possible. Visit in the evenings after 4;00 pm would be much cooler. There is also a little restaurant with toilets.

    I wanted very much to see anything pre-islamic to have an idea of what was here in the remote past.
    I really liked the site.
    The location is beautiful, we drove around the shore a bit, saw the old boat replica the we visited the actual site which was suffering some renovations in Feb 2022 but in a discreet way.
    There is information in Arabic and English and you can have a nice experience walking around the old city imagining how the houses and shops were looking in ancient times.

    Nothing can beat Dubai when it comes to the size, grandeur, international brands, variety of products & anything else you can think of regarding a "Mall". So, our visit to this mall was just to explore how big is the biggest mall in Salalah. It's one-third the size of Mall of the Emirates. Our visit was in the afternoon on a weekday, so very less people. 50% of the outlets are either restaurants, ice cream shops or cafes. The other half were the usual product stores, mostly local brands I guess as I haven't heard those names in Dubai. There is also a Carrefour for grocery shopping.

    The mall is neat & clean with an outdoor amphitheatre style seating & fountain area. There is ample parking space outside the mall. There is also a Gardens Hotel next door. Nothing great about the mall.

    It is a nice little castle, sitting on a little hill. After climbing some stairs you will earn a nice view on Taqah and the environment. It is good to visit. The castle himself closed

    While visiting the thumb of prophet Ayoub it was closed due to covid 19 disease.

    This place is really interesting and quite strange in Salalah. The location is marked and once you reach there, you put your car in neutral gear and see how the gravity works. It is definitely a great experience for people from different ages. The place can easily be accessed from Salalah.

    Nice waterslide park - some of the waterslides are quite spectacular and overall it's great fun. The lifeguards are friendly, but sometimes a bit over-protective. Not a lot of shade at midday.

    We arrived in the evening and walked through the excavations as the daylight faded and the flood lights switched on. Due to the fading light, we didn't get to the beach but appreciated the buildings that have so far been uncovered.

    Jabal Samhan is arguably one of the locations not to miss when you are in Dhofar. Located at around 50km from Salalah, it is the highest peak in the Governerate. As you drove to the point, you feel like that little by little, you are moving above the clouds, and once you are there, the view is truly incredible. You can begin going through the tracks to explore much further in the mountain, though it is recommended that you go in a group, have enough provisions and where sturdy shoes.

    We took a daytrip to the Empty Quarter and stopped in our way back to Salalah in Ubar and Wadi Dawkah. Ubar is nice place to visit and to learn about the Frankincense trail. Wadi Dawkah is very beautiful at the non touristic place. The touristic place looks artificial.
