Muscat to Mussendam

We are trying to plan a holiday in Oman, spending 6 or 7 days in the Muscat area (where we plan to stay in Villa Shams again, a wonderful, friendly B&B) but we thought this time we would like to spend our last few days holiday driving up to Mussendam, staying there for a couple of nights then driving back to Muscat for the flight home.

Can any one offer us any advice on this please?

How long is the drive?

Where is good/not too expensive to stay up there? Are there any B&B's or only hotels?

In a limited time scale where should we sight see and where could we snorkel?

Any advice would be aprriciated, please1

We hope to go in early October.

You need to go through the UAE to drive to Musandam. Drive is pretty long, 6+ hours.

An alternative will be to take the ferry from Muscat to Musandam. I hear it is nice.

I stayed at the golden tulip in musandam which was nice. Not sure about other hotels in the area.

Thanks.

I'd forgotten about the ferry option, we could ferry one way and drive the other! Sounds like a plan!

Cheers!

Do'nt forget you have to buy a new visa for Oman when you visit Musandam by can through UAE. By now the visa is quite expensive (20 OR).

The "car ferry" does not carry cars, only passengers. (they didn't build any jetties suitable for loading cars)
