Outdoor Activities in Oman

Beaches, pools, tours, watersports….these are all fantastic things to add to your to-do list in Oman but when it’s 40+ degrees outside, some of these outdoor activities that require you to head out, lose their charm somewhat. This is why, when temperatures finally drop in Oman, we are impatient to get out there and make the most of the glorious sunshine that won’t burn us to a crisp.

We can’t wait to get out on the ocean, floppy hat and sunnies at the ready, or stroll along the beach and grab an ice cream before throwing on a jumper (we know, it sounds ridiculous in the Gulf but we can’t wait to get some use out of woolly wear) and admire whichever view takes our fancy that evening, as we can actually sit out on balconies again!

Here are some things you’ll find us crossing off our list this winter –

Oman Sail: Half Day Snorkelling Trip

Estimated Savings: OMR25
Location: Millenium Resort Mussanah

Discover life under the sea with a half day snorkelling trip out on the crystal clear waters of Oman. Take some time out and chill with the fish and coral for a relaxing, beautiful day.

Crowne Plaza: Pool Pass

Estimated Savings: OMR10
Location: Crowne Plaza Sohar

Grab your sunglasses and a good book because it’s time to put your feet up and spend a well deserved day lazing by the pool with a mocktail in hand. Nothing sounds more appealing to us that doing just that. Let’s go!

Uniboats: 60Min Jet Ski

Estimated Savings: OMR40
Location: The Wave

If you fancy something different and want to find that adrenaline rush, then try an exciting 60Min Jet Ski session out on the open water. You’ll be booking another session before you know it, trust us.

Watersport Oman: Stand-up Paddling Safari

Estimated Savings: OMR450
Location: Muscat

Go on an aqua adventure and give yourself a workout at the same time with an awesome paddle board safari. Take in the stunning views, let the calm of the water wash over you and have an amazing time while doing it. What could be better?
