Many people travel to Salalah for Scuba diving and snorkelling that are extremely popular in the city. There are plenty of dive centres here, and in Mirbat, which is about 70km to the east.
The annual Khareef Festival, from 15 July to 31 August, celebrates monsoon season and Dhofari culture. This colourful tradition is the perfect excuse to enjoy live music, entertainment and street food.
Pack your binoculars and visit Khawr Salalah, a beautiful lagoon in which you can indulge your ornithological bent, as you spot ospreys, flamingos and other migratory birds. Or take a leisurely stroll through the city's fruit plantations of bananas, papayas and coconuts, located near the corniche.
