Discover the highlights of Salalah during this tour of the Garden City, Mughsail Beach, Job's Tomb and Al Husn Souq. Depart the Pier for the drive to Mughsail Beach. Along the way, you may be lucky to see camels roaming along the roadside. Upon arrival, you will find nearly two miles of unspoiled white sand beaches, high cliffs at both ends and many picnic areas. If your arrival coincides with high tide, you may have an opportunity to witness the beach's spectacular blow holes.


You’ll proceed for a visit to Job's Tomb where, according to legend, the remains of the Muslim and Old Testament Prophet Job rest. Job's Tomb is a sacred place of pilgrimage for Muslims, Christians and Jews. This site also offers panoramic views and photo opportunities of the striking Qara Mountains and Jubriah Plain.


Your tour will conclude with a stop at the Al Husn Souq, where you’ll have time free time to stroll amongst the vendors. The colorful stalls are heaped with mounds of frankincense, myrh, incense, bottles of fragrant perfume oils and a variety of items for sale.
