Glamping on Khalouf BeachKhalouf, Oman

An ever-changing bank of dunes hems this empty stretch of pale sand. Drive five hours south from Muscat along the Omani coastline and you’ll find one of the Middle East’s best beaches. Just back from the lapping waves, a luxury camp operated by Hud Hud Travels is the perfect romantic getaway. Amble straight from your tent into the Indian Ocean and soak away the sultry heat of Oman’s south. Here, flamingos wade with pink legs into gentle waves and eagles swoop on the surface, rising with fish glistening in their talons. During the day jump in a 4WD and take the ferry to nearby Masirah Island, where sea turtles breed, or head to Barr al Hickman, a saltpan where migratory birds flock. Otherwise just enjoy the seclusion on the sand or snorkel off the shore.

  • Proper mattresses
  • Cotton linen
  • Private bathroom tent with basin and shower
  • Books

  • Boules

From about US$770 per person, per night. Minimum stay of two nights.

There’s no electric light so the camp uses candles, oil lamps and fires.
