Southern Oman

About the area

A hidden gem

This relatively unexplored region boasts a contrasting hot desert climate and an annual ‘Khareef’ monsoon, which sees the landscape transformed into a green oasis between July and September. Located between the Arabian Sea and the Dhofar Mountains, Dhofar is a hidden gem known for its historical significance and natural beauty.

Salalah, the main city, was once a vital capital of the frankincense trade. Today, it remains an important economic centre.  Salalah is Oman’s second-largest city, a tropical coastal town laced with coconut palms and banana plantations.

During the Khareef season, the lush paradise draws visitors from the GCC to experience its misty charm. The region offers a mix of adventure, culture, and relaxation year-round.

Explore Dhofar’s rich heritage through ancient ruins and archaeological sites, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sumhuram. Hiking in the Samhan mountains or experiencing Bedouin culture in the Empty Quarter are must-do activities.

Indulge in Dhofar’s delicious cuisine, influenced by centuries of trade, featuring fragrant spices and fresh seafood. Whether you seek adventure or tranquillity, Dhofar promises an unforgettable experience amidst breathtaking natural beauty.
