Southern Oman



Ancient history meets natural wonders

Nestled 74 kilometres away from the bustling city of Salalah, the coastal town of Mirbat stands as a beacon of historical significance within the enchanting Governorate of Dhofar. Perched upon the plains of Jabal Samhan, with a commanding view of the Arabian Sea coast, Mirbat beckons travellers to immerse themselves in its storied past.

Named after the renowned horse stall that once thrived here, Mirbat rose to prominence during the ninth century AD as a hub for horse breeding and export, connecting distant Arab and Islamic ports with its prized steeds. Amidst the flourishing trade of frankincense and artisanal crafts, Mirbat etched its place in history as a pivotal trading post.

Unveil the secrets of Mirbat’s rich heritage as you explore its natural wonders, historical monuments, and ancient architecture. From the iconic Mirbat Castle to the historic Sidov House, each site tells a story of Oman’s proud past.

Delight in Mirbat’s vibrant markets, pristine beaches, and abundant marine life, drawing visitors year-round to indulge in fishing and coral reef exploration. Traverse the majestic Jabal Samhan, home to diverse flora and fauna, including the elusive Arabian leopard, wolf and many more.

Check out nature’s wonders at the Hiyour Cave and Tawi Ateer Sinkhole, each offering a glimpse into Oman’s geological marvels. Experience the enigmatic 0 Gravity road, where cars defy gravity’s pull, adding a touch of mystery to your adventure.

Let us set up a private camp on a pristine beach not too far away and allow you to embark on an unforgettable journey to Mirbat, where history, culture, and natural beauty intertwine to create an unforgettable travel experience.

Getting to your private camp in Mirbat from the airport

After a short flight from Muscat to the historic southern town of Salalah, you will be met by one of our experienced Hud Hud team and taken, by road, along the scenic eastern coastline to your luxury private camp, nestled on a beautiful secluded beach, embraced by twin headlands.

Depending on your arrival time in Salalah, there might be time to explore the coastline on the way, with a stop at the village of Taqah or you could enjoy a casual walk along the beach, a swim in the warm ocean waters, snorkelling amongst the coral shelves, or just take the opportunity to relax with a book while you soak up your surroundings.

After freshening up in your private open-air shower, dinner will be prepared and served by your personal camp chef, as you watch the sun sink over the horizon from your intimate beach retreat.

Take a look at what else is possible during your trip to the beach.

A stay at the beach in Mirbat can be nicely combined with a few nights in a private camp in Wadi Exil or Salalah and another luxury camp in the Empty Quarter. Of course, there is also the stunning Alila Hotel in Mirbat that we can combine with out other camps.
