If you are seeking to experience the true Arabian way of life, Gulf Air provides you with daily flights to Muscat. Muscat, the capital city of the Sultanate of Oman, is known to cater to a wide variety of tourist appetites; from the adventurous thrill-seeker to those simply searching for some rest and relaxation. Attractions that would complete your flight to Muscat Termed as the 'Jewel of Arabia', Muscat provides a unique blend of old and new with many grandiose mosques, forts, castles, souks and watchtowers. Two forts – Jalali and Mirani – both of which were built by the Portuguese dramatically guard the entrance to Muscat. These historic structures also guard the Sultan's palace. The Musandam Peninsula is a rugged and starkly beautiful region with its main attraction being the 'Fjords of Arabia'. Separated from the rest of Oman by the east coast of the UAE, Musandam overlooks one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world – the Straits of Hormuz. Salalah is just a quick flight from Muscat and definitely one of the sights that should feature high on your 'must visit' list. For most of the year, the unspoiled beaches of the region are ideal for scuba diving, canoeing, sailing, jet skiing and diving. Many hotels in Oman also offer access to water sports. Mention must also be made of Mughshayl, an immaculate stretch of beach featuring a blowhole that displays dramatic bursts of water and foam, sometimes rising as high as 50 feet in the air.
