Masirah Island

This skinny island measuring just seven miles across and 60 miles from top to bottom is situated off the eastern coast of Oman, and is best known for being home to the Royal Air Force of Oman, as well as a number of fishing villages which are scattered around the rocky shoreline.

Thanks to the abundance of sea turtles in the Gulf of Oman, Masirah Island also makes a popular spot for the creatures to lay their eggs, and as a result marine conservation activity has expanded in the area, alongside a steady rise in tourist numbers coming to see the turtles up-close. Only recently opened for tourists, Masirah is home to just one four-star hotel (although many visitors here choose to camp on the sand) and there's also a kitesurfing camp catering for thrill-seekers looking to take advantage of the steady 20-knot winds during monsoon season.

Victoria loves the of the Masandam Peninsula. This is the Omani version of the Amalfi Coast - rugged, barren and simply stunning. This road leads you to Six Senses Zighy Bay - which is a wow property
