Travelling to Oman with children

Hi!

We are planning a family trip to Oman in 2022 (hopefully covid won’t be a problem by then). I’ve already looked up the documents required to travel to the country, such as the visa for Oman for British citizens, as well as the most popular tourist attractions but I was wondering if any of you had recommandations on kid-friendly places and activities in Oman? We really want our children to have fun on this trip since we haven’t travelled in a while.

Thanks!

If you planning a family trip to Oman in 2022, hopefully by then the situation will be under control.

There is a number of beautiful and amazing places to have fun with your family like:

Masirah Island
Musandam Dibba Tour
Salalah
Wahiba Sands
Jebel Akhdar

My suggestion is first to visit Musandam Dibba Tour where the tourist crowd will be less and thereafter you may go to other places as mentioned above.

The majority of people are unfamiliar with Oman. They may have heard a few rumors about desert forts, undulating sand dunes, and majestic mountains, but that's likely all they've heard. However, this is an excellent family vacation spot. There are so many things to do with kids in Oman, and they are all very simple! The roads are excellent, the accommodations are excellent, the activities are diverse and extremely family-oriented, the people are delightful, and everything is extremely safe.

Oman has a lot when it comes to family holidays – lots of space, guaranteed good weather, natural wonders, gorgeous beaches, friendly people, ancient forts, stunning palaces, deserts, souks, wadis, and oases. English is spoken widely (there is a large ex-pat community) and the vibe is relatively tolerant.

If you're planning on traveling to Oman with your children, be sure to pack a lot of snacks and water bottles. The heat can be intense, especially in the summer, and dehydration is common among travelers. Additionally, it's essential to stay safe while traveling in Oman by using common sense — avoid walking alone at night or crossing busy streets without looking both ways first. And if something does happen while you're away from home, don't hesitate to reach out for help! Many organizations assist foreigners who find themselves stranded abroad.
