Sparsely populated and wildly beautiful, Oman is an endless playground, boasting rugged mountains, towering sand dunes, bustling souqs and a glistening coastline.
Quite simply, Oman is a country
that ticks all the family holiday boxes. Starting with the journey,
which is a relatively short, direct flight from the UK, making it a
perfect option for Easter and October half-term breaks. Next, add
in some great family-friendly hotels for every age - whether you're
in need of a fantastic kids club or epic adventures for an older
brood (think: a James Bond style entry paragliding into one
particular hotel from the towering Hajar Mountains). And the
adventure doesn't stop there.
Daily activities range from diving the spectacularly fishy
Daymaniyat Islands off Muscat to haggling for traditional
trinkets in souqs; sandboarding down golden sand dunes to swimming
with dolphins in Salalah;
camping in the star-filled desert to cruising the coast aboard a
luxurious catamaran. Oman will certainly ignite your children's
sense of adventure (or at least get them away from the iPad).
