We will take you to admire the beauty of Jabal al Qamar (the mountain of the moon), where you wouldn’t be surprised by seeing a pterodactyl flying in the sky. We will drive through a panoramic road to reach the top of the mountain to admire the spectacular vertical cliffs of stratified rocks on the Arabian Sea. We will stop to see the modest trees that produces the purest frankincense in their natural habitat. We will stop at Mughsayl Beach, on the seasonal path followed by schools of dolphins and humpback wales, and take a walk over the submarine cave of Marneef, where waves can blow through carsick vertical erosions creating false geysers that can reach up to 20 meters high.
