Masirah Vacation Packages
Masirah is located approximately 230 miles (370 kilometers) from Muscat, the country's capital.
Masirah isn't the only spot in Oman worth experiencing; those with enough time can also head off and experience the magic of the nearby landscapes, towns and cities.
Houses of the holy are great windows into a region's spiritual traditions. The mosques of Oman are no exception.
There are loads of ways to make the most of the wide open spaces around Masirah. Caving and hiking are two ways active visitors can get their fix.
There's no nicer method to get to the heart of the place you are traveling through than sampling the local food. Fish and lamb are two of the local ingredients. How about trying mashuai (spit-roasted kingfish) or maqbous (rice dish)? Both meals are popular in this area. After the main course dishes are cleared away order the delicious lokhemat (balls of deep fried flour and yeast). Have a try of one of the more common beverages like tea.
If you're traveling in Masirah on the 18th of November, enjoy the festivities surrounding the nation-wide Birthday of Sultan Qaboos celebrations.
For those who intend on traveling by plane, it's handy to remember that the nearest major airport is Seeb International Airport, 230 miles (370 kilometers) to the north of Masirah.
