The south coast of Oman is one of the few places in the northern hemisphere which, in the height of summer, allows you to do real waveriding, with waves of significant quality and size. Moreover, it is reached by the summer monsoon which guarantees almost two months of intense wind. Furthermore, it has the advantage to let you immerse in still relatively wild landscapes.
Windsurfing, spot review: Oman, and the Masirah wave spots
Oman is a country that swings between modernity and tradition. Obviously, the big cities (the capital Muscat, in particular) is characterized by western world like infrastructures. The desert and more peripheral areas, from the logistic point of view, offer more spartan structures. Moreover, in the latter, traditional way of life is more common among the inhabitants.
The journey to reach the windsurfing spots is more challenging than that for other destinations (eg Canary Islands, or even South Africa), but not extremely difficult, particularly if you are planning a travel with reasonable timetables .... However, the conditions offered by the spots undoubtedly deserve the trip. In this extensive article, we describe why.
Reaching Oman by plane is, of course, quite simple.
