Do it by dhowMusandam Peninsula, Oman

Not every sailing adventure has to be an epic voyage, and a two-day dhow cruise with Musandam Sea Adventures is a tantalising way to find your sea legs. The rugged Musandam Peninsula is an enclave of Oman, separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates and jutting into the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. Board a dhow – a traditional wooden fishing vessel – and explore the mountains that plunge straight into the sea. Frolic on the sparkling white sand beaches skirting the many inlets, keep a lookout for dolphins and swim in clear waters teeming with marine life.

The tour leaves from Khasab on the Musandam Peninsula. It takes about two-and-a-half hours to drive to Khasab from Dubai.

From about US$170 for an two-day dhow trip, including meals and one night of camping on a beach.
