This one is adjoinig Mughsail beach . .so you will actually walk through this area while going to the fence end. the shape of the mountains depicts a different story at the sunrise and at the sunset. visit this place to witness it on your own :) "and no one regrets visiting this place ever" .

This place is worth the drive, though it is close to the Yemen border (about 200km). The view is lovely and you feel like spending a lot of time there. The water is crystal clear and the waves hitting the rocks and spraying water are a sight to see. Though this happens at high tide only.

Not actually a visible cave but mostly underwater. This creates "echo waves" and when the tide is high, nice visual effects

Nice scenery all along the way. The spot of the cave feeds your eyes with nice mountains, beaches and ocean. It is the best place in Salalah for us. We enjoyed the drive coming here and the view.

The drive there was amazing and the cave well so amazing to see with its surrounding view of the ocean and if you get the time right the blow holes are also in the same location. Amazing drive

Huge and nice mountain as background with the sea in front. Cool place to visit and spend time for walking up on the hill. From my opinion even we didn't see the blow hole but the scenery and atmosphere is also amazing!

Best thing for the visitors is: there is no entrance fee & no parking fee at most of the sight seeing places in Salalah. From 2009 to 2016 I was in Oman, I heard a lot & also read a lot on Salalah. The chance to visit Salalah came in October 2016. I really felt yaa it's true what I... More

Like the name suggests it isn't really a cave but a gigantic limestone rock. It faces the Mughsail blowholes and offers a nice shaded area to take enjoy views of the sea. The place is well maintained with benches and a wooden railing along the edge. It's definitely worth a visit!

It wasn't so spectacular but if you stay in a hotel, it's nice to go to other place and see other landscape. Nice rocky seashore and some interesting birds.
