Nice place, since we visited this place in January, the climate was not so great. We didn’t get the view of water spreading. Nice view of sea. Must be good in July/August season.

About a 30-40 minute drive out of Salalah (depending on the location of your hotel) this place is a must see. The cave itself is less cave, and more overhanging rock, but is spectacular. Footpaths have been added (sympathetically) which allow you to walk over...More

We drove all the way from Salalah and the road and coast are spectacular. We went when the blow holes weren't blowing, so not at it s best. The caves are OK, but hardly a major attraction. The best bit was seeing herds of camels...More

The blowhole wasn't active when we visited and the cave is interesting but not worth a visit in its own right. However, if you are visiting mugsail beach it's only a short walk to the cave.

It is definitely something to see in Salalah. Plus you get to see the beach and the camels running wild around you.

The site was well-marked and easily accessible. The water is beautiful and crystal clear. Unfortunately we came at low tide and missed the blow holes. Tip for future travelers!

No one here. This attraction was finaly popular 5 years ago, We think. Go and see it by yourself but don‘t want to see to much. Make it by your owne with a rental car.
