Musandam's spectacular mountains, remote villages and beautiful fjords are a must see on any visitor's checklist. It is located on the Strait of Hormuz, to the north of the UAE, and is isolated from the rest of Oman. Its characterized scenery with jagged cliffs plunging into the sea, fjord punctuated coastline and lagoons, is unique from the rest of the Middle East which earned it the moniker 'Norway of Arabia'. The underwater attractions with a variety of sea life including offshore coral beds, tropical fish, turtles, dolphins, sharks and whales, makes it one of the best diving sites in the region.
