The scent of history

The scent of history

Follow the incense trail and discover the ancient world's most sought after perfume - frankincense. The Frankincense Trail is a World Heritage Site that leads from the Empty Quarter to the Oasis of Shisr, Wadi Dawkah and the medieval ports of Khor Rori and Al-Baleed. See where this exotic resin is harvested and return with a sweet-smelling souvenir of a desert journey. Or simply explore the souq in Salalah for a sample of this legendary aromatic.

Beaches and blowholes

30 minutes drive from Salalah, there's six kilometres of white sand beach and crystal clear waters at Al-Mughsail. Dotted with picnic shelters and surrounded by frankincense trees, the beach's west end has three entertaining blowholes where waves force water from the sea below up into the air (as high as 28m in the sky in Khareef season).
