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!

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.

Not much of a cave, but rather a big sheltered opening, with a blowhole and a view to some magnificent cliffs.

If you are visiting Salalah you shouldn't miss the opportunity to visit this place. It is not a cave per say but it is an amazing location. Don't forget to see the blow holes while you are there

The Marneef cave is located in Salalah in Oman where you can see the mountains, the sea, the beach and relax. You can also enjoy a coffee or tea or some snacks in the nearby restaurant where you can set and enjoy the sea and view with the golden beach.
