Best time to go

Oman is definitely not a summer destination as temperatures can reach well above 37 degrees Celsius. However, from October to April, temperatures stay comfortable making this the best time to visit.

The Al Waha and Al Bandar are most suited for families while the Al Husn is ideal for couples.
