Perhaps I missed the 'cave'. The eave like rock structure was fantastic to look at and if you stand under it (or even walking towards it), the sound of the waves come to you like a surround sound. It was quite neat for us to stand under the eave of the cave and listen to the waves.

I'm not sure why this is a separate entry from Mughsail beach as they are collocated. It's not really a cave but an interesting rock formation. Benches to sit and enjoy the breeze. Great views.

Not much of a cave, more like a cliff, but it had lovely views and was easy to maneuver, the blowholes are nice, but do not try the cafeteria there, horrible.

Its about 30 minutes drive from Salalah city, but its worth the trip, the location has its own majestic feeling, and if you were lucky and you were there in a day with no much tourists ruining the view you can enjoy the magical nature. our highlight of the day that as we were enjoying a cold soda in the...

The place was absolutely stunning and the fact that they are overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches in Salalah just adds to the charm of this beautiful place. Really had an amazing time here.

These three attractions should in fact be reviewed together as one attraction, because they are very near each other. At the end of Almughaisil Beach you can see the cave and down below the cave are the two blow holes. One visit to all three. Before making the trip to the cave, I thought it would be a big cave...

Does not look like a cave, but it is close to Mughsail blow holes and beach so it is just on the way, would not harm a quick look and a picture.

Don't miss out this place if you are visiting salalah. A must in your travel itinerary of places to visit. Beautiful scenic view of constant sea waves,mountains, cloud and rain (visit must be between jul-sep). All in all a wonderful place to be with your family and friends.

Thank Swapnil Y
