Muscat, Omani's capital, is located 230 miles (370 kilometers) to the southeast of Khasab.
Vacationing in this popular part of the country can be not only relaxing, but an adventure too; so set aside some time to rent a vehicle and uncover some of the other interesting towns and cities in the vicinity of Khasab. Places within a relatively short distance of Khasab are Zighy Bay, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the north, and Dibba, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north.
Spend a day in the sunshine and fresh air and make a tour of Oman's popular open-air markets.
Get outside and get amongst the adventures in the Khasab area. Try horse riding or give abseiling a spin.
For many travelers, experiencing new horizons is as much about eating and drinking as it is about visiting sites, so don't forget to explore the dishes in the area. Fish and also lamb are ingredients commonly used as part of dishes in this area. Take a tip from the locals and try mashuai (spit-roasted kingfish) or maqbous (rice dish). And for dessert, you can't say no to lokhemat (balls of deep fried flour and yeast). Those who are not used to drinking alcoholic beverages will want to sample tea, a common drink in this region.
The most convenient major airport, Ras al Khaimah International Airport, is situated in Ras al Khaimah, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the southwest of Khasab, which is handy to remember when planning your holiday.
