If you are traveling by sea on the eastern tip of Oman, be sure to make a stop at the small Ras Al Khabbah Peninsula, where you can see the beautiful cliffs. You will also find camping places here, as it is a popular picnic place for locals as well

Road through a semi-desert landscape to the south

The road from Ras Al Hadd to the south leads through a flat semi-desert landscape, where the signs „watch out for camels“ are not at all out of the question

Hardly accessible beach

Directly below us is a beautiful but difficult to access beach. We didn't notice any footpaths down.

Viewpoint at the end of the peninsula

It pays to drive / connect another about 750 meters to the very end of the peninsula, where there are other nice cliffs

Endless beach

To the south of the town, the plain and the road descends directly to the sea, where there is an „endless“ sandy beach – an ideal place to stop and swim in complete privacy.
