Experiences

4X4

For adventure, excitement, and some amazing views, visitors can hop aboard a 4X4 for a fast-paced tour of the surrounding areas, from Zighy Bay to the scenic Sabatyn Plateau, along the mountainside to Wadi Al Bih, and through small, picturesque villages.

Fjords Cruise

See what everyone is talking about: enjoy stunning views of the Musandam Fjords on a cruise through Haffa Bay. One of the best times of day? Sunset, where visitors can gaze at streaks of color framing the already-incredible landscape.

Hiking

For a slower-paced activity, visitors can enjoy a trek on one of the many hiking trails around the bay, or some of the more challenging paths over the mountain towards Wadi al Khamsi.

Mountain Biking

Get those legs burning while mountain biking through the Hajar Mountains: visitors can check out the diverse flora and fauna on the rugged mountainside while riding up and down varied trails.

Paragliding

Fly over Zighy Bay on the experience of a lifetime: those who dare can paraglide from the top of Zighy Mountain and across the Bay at nearly 100 feet in the air. Talk about a spectacular view!

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

Water lovers rejoice: Zighy Bay is home to spectacular coral reefs, rock formations, tropical fish and other underwater life for visitors to take in with their own eyes. Join a dive excursion or simply grab some snorkels and a mask - and don’t forget an underwater camera!
