The Magnificent Middle East

Located northeast of the United Arab Emirates on the Musandam Peninsula, about two hours from the metropolis that is Dubai, Oman's adjoining Zighy Bay remains a hidden treasure to many travelers.

Travel Tips


  • Forecasting Your Zighy Bay Vacation

    Oman's Middle Eastern desert climate brings intense heat, especially during the summer. The bay and surrounding mountains help to mitigate this, but you can expect high temperatures throughout the year. Winter, from November through March, features lower temperatures and is considered the most pleasant time to visit. Minimal annual rainfall, however, means you can partake in Oman's many adventurous activities just about any time.
