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. 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.
