Dhofar is the most southerly province of Oman and a place of fable and mystery. The frankincense trade flourished here, giving rise to once prosperous, now ruined ports and towns. Prophets bestrode the land leaving improbable footprints and the whole place is veiled in monsoon mists once a year. This is also the land of empty, crystal-sand beaches, a place where you can find yourself strolling across white sands for hours with barely anyone else in sight.
Combining some time in Dhofar with a trip round the key highlights of central Oman makes for a wonderful holiday. The (necessary) domestic flight from Muscat down to Salalah is inexpensive and takes just an hour and a half, making it straightforward to tack this part of the country onto your itinerary. Furthermore, if you don’t make it to the Wahiba Sands in central Oman, a day trip to Salalah’s nearby Empty Quarter will give you all the desert fix you need.
3 nights Muscat – 3 nights Nizwa and the mountains – 4 nights Salalah
