Musandam
 
One of the most beautiful places in Arabian Peninsula, Musandam is only two hours away from Dubai.
How to get there:
From Dubai, drive on the Emirates road (E 311) towards Ras Al Khaimah. Thisshould take you less than an hour and half. From Ras Al Khaimah follow the signs to Al Rams and Khasab.In about 30 minutes you should cross the border (Ras Al Darah checkpoint).
Very important:
Before you leave on this trip, make sure you have your passport with you. For UAEresidents or GCC nationals there is no need for a Oman visa. If you came on a Visit visa to UAE, you morethan likely, need also to have an Oman visa in your passport. On top of that, your UAE visa must havemultiple entries, otherwise you will not be able to return to UAE. For more information on Oman visas,call the Oman’s embassy at 02-446-3333.
 
The road in Musandam is very dramatic, offering you one of the most scenic drives you ever seen inthis region, always following the coastline. On one side of the road you have the sea and many smallbeautiful beaches, on the other side you have the mountains, reaching over 2000 meters high.

You will find few beautiful small villages on the way and two towns: Bukha and Khasab. If you’re not inhurry, you should stop and visit some of these villages. As you drive on the road to Khasab, they will beon your right side. Not all of these villages are right by the sea, so you will have to drive a little bit insidethe mountains.One of the most beautiful villages is Ghumdah, only 2 km away from the coast. Situated on a sunnyplateau and surrounded by the high mountains all around, it’s really a magnificent place. The sand slopeyou see in the picture above is still used by the kids from this village to go downhill on “improvised” slides.Bukha is a small but pretty town. Near the road, by the coast, you can see Bukha Fort. Built by thePortuguese, centuries ago, and renovated in 1990’s, the fort is nothing short of amazing.

There are many things to admire at this fort: high exterior walls, the round and square towers and thebeautiful plasterwork decorations as well as the traditional carved doors and shutters set inside theinner walls, surrounding the courtyard.
 
Al Qala’a Fort is up on a hill, overlooking the town of Bukha. The views here are quite impressive and it isworth to visit. It’s not far from the main road, only a few minutes drive.
