Family holidays to Oman are only just beginning to gain in popularity. For now it is a destination relatively little visited by tourists, especially compared to its glitzy big sister, Dubai. But it is all the more charming for it, with plenty of scope to get off-the-beaten-track and to catch a glimpse of traditional Arabia.
The beaches are fabulous and with guaranteed sunshine for most of the year, this is already quite a draw card. However for us the great attractions of Oman are the spectacular craggy mountains and the vast and dramatic sand dunes of the desert. There are also impressive forts, picturesque fishing villages, beautiful oases and a traditional hospitality that will make you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
