Musandam Peninsula Diving Holidays: An Overview

The Musandam Peninsula is known as the 'Norway of Arabia' with 'fjords' and dramatic pink-skinned cliffs dropping vertically into the sea. There are no barrier reefs here. Instead you dive mostly under the towering cliffs that plunge almost vertically into the depths.

The marine life here is incredibly diverse and each dive brings something different from excellent macro (small stuff) right up to regular whale shark sightings. Some of the diving can be a bit more technical, thanks to strong currents, but this is still an ideal place for beginners and experts alike.

What really sets this diving apart from the Red Sea is that no one else is in the water within miles - you are out here alone and again that just adds so much to the experience. Given the choice of the now overcrowded northern Red Sea or the Musandam peninsula, while the Red Sea definitely offers more variety and colourful reefs, this is a totally overlooked corner of effectively private diving nirvana; also with guaranteed sunshine and some wonderful hotels.
