Zighy Bay Vacations
Muscat, the national capital, is located 200 miles (322 kilometers) to the southeast of Zighy Bay.
From big-ticket tourist hotspots to lesser known delights, the area around Zighy Bay is dotted with cultural and natural attractions. Khasab and Al Mirayr are just two of the many other places worth checking out while you're in Oman.
To truly understand a region, it's good to peer back through the mists of time. Oman's fine old archeological sites are a great place to start.
Beach combing and sunbathing are just a few of the options for relaxation in the Oman area.
Try common dishes and get to the core of the local cuisine. Two of the region's best-loved ingredients are fish and lamb. Don't end your stay in Zighy Bay without sampling mashuai (spit-roasted kingfish) and maqbous (rice dish). Lokhemat (balls of deep fried flour and yeast) is the perfect way to conclude your meal. Tea is a popular beverage in this region.
Birthday of Sultan Qaboos falls on the 18th of November, so be sure to take a break from sightseeing and spend the day celebrating with happy locals.
When booking your vacation to Zighy Bay, it's good to remember that the nearest major airport, Ras al Khaimah International Airport, is located in in Ras al Khaimah, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west.
