FROM SALALAH HEAD TO THE PORT AND TAKE THE ROAD TO MUGSHELL (I THINK IT'S SPELT LIKE THIS), STAY ON THIS ROAD FOR ABOUT 20-25 MINS AND YOU'LL COME RIGHT ONTO THE BEACH.

It's easy to find. Go to Mugshayl, look out in front of Maneef cave.

 Additional Information

THERE'S A ROAD ALL THE WAY ALONG THE BEACH WITH PLENTY OF PARKING. THE ONLY TIME THIS PLACE GETS PEOPLE ON IS A FRIDAY, I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY OTHER SURFERS AND I WAS THERE FOR 13 MONTHS. IT'S A FUN WAVE THAT GETS HOLLOW OVER THE SAND BANK, I SHOULD KNOW IT SNAPPED MY BOARD.

Watch out for the rocks, it breaks close to the rocks. There are two peaks, one is a kind of wedge but the best takeoff spot is further right where the wave starts to speed up. Pick your waves carefuly, many of the waves that come through are not lined up well.

Atmosphere

SUNNY EVERY DAY FROM OCT-MAY, IT'S THE BEST SURF SOUTH OF OMAN I THINK. LARGE TURTLES IN OCT AND DOLPHINS EVERY DAY TO SURF THROUGH THE WAVES WITH OR JUST SIT OUT BACK AND BE HUMBLED. THE BEACH IS ABOUT 2 MILES LONG AND YOU'LL FIND A WAVE TO SUIT YOU, IF YOU HAVE A POWER KITE AND BUGGY IT'S A MUST.

Works best before and after the peak of the khareef season (july-august) the swell is very big during the khareef but also messy and windy. before and after the swell is a nice size, clean and very consistent. Amazing scenery, loads of dolphins and turtles in the water, probably plenty more breaks in the area.

General

SICK!, NO CRAPP ON THE BEACH AND THE WATER IS SO CLEAR AND WARM, SOME DAYS I WAS OUT FOR 3-4 HOURS. AND TO ADD TO THE SPOT THERE'S A NEAT CAFE THAT DOES THINGS TO FRESH FISH THAT I COULD NOT DREAM OF AS A CHEF, OPEN EVERY NIGHT ABOUT 6-12.

It's good. Very ledgy and fast, but a very short ride.

The name is Mughsayl - The real name of this place is Mughsayl. You can see camels, flamingos and other animals in the right side of the road, in a little wadi. On the beach, you can protect yourself from the burning sun under little shelters. Great place to visit very close to Salalah!
