Oman is a superb destination to visit as a family. Muscat has numerous hotels with spacious grounds, access to beaches and large swimming pools for relaxing, fun-filled days. That’s why we suggest having a good few days at the end of this multi-centre trip to be in or near Muscat and spend some down-time at a beach resort.

Venturing further afield there are caves, sand dunes, dolphins and turtles for the younger ones to enjoy and it can be done with a guide, or as a family road-trip in a hire car. Omanis themselves are also a very friendly, welcoming nation, creating a very accessible place in which to introduce your children to bold and beautiful Middle Eastern culture.

3 nights Muscat – 2 nights Nizwa and the mountains – 1 night Wahiba Sands – 1 night Sur – 4 nights Muscat and around
