Shoof Oman! #008

شوف (arabic) shoof: look! see! (english)

The Sultanate of Oman has over 1700kms of coastline; waves from the Gulf of Oman/Indian ocean lap over most of the beaches, however in Musandam, the eastern shore coast is on the Arabian Gulf.  Naturally there is the odd shipwreck – you can see this one on the East coast of the sublime Masairah Island.


The Sultanate of Oman is a truly wonderful country, full of beautiful places to visit and interesting things to see.  Some tourists are content to spend their holidays within the confines of their luxurious Arabian styled 4 star hotels, and there is nothing wrong with that.  However if you get yourself out there you might find something unusual, quirky or bizarre to photograph and as a bonus, any Omanis you encounter will bowl you over with their kindness and hospitality.

I have traveled extensively throughout the Sultanate and not seen half of all there is to see. Will you follow me and شوف Oman?

    How old is this photo? The wreck is very much diminished since the cyclone a year or two back
