Who knew Surfing in Oman is a thing? While Oman is best known for many wonderful things includeing its expansive dunes, towering mountains, endless wadis, aromatic roses, and delicious honey; surfing in Oman is not one of them. However, quietly, this sport is alive and practiced by a group of friendly locals who tell me the waves are surprisingly good.
There are countless users on Instagram featuring beautiful images of Oman. However, I thought I’d put a list together featuring the 13 Instagramers in Oman that inspire me the most. These accounts will make you want to drop what you are doing and book those tickets to Oman, or (if you are already here) get out and explore the backroads and alleys.

In the heart of Oman’s newest economic zone, City Hotel Duqm makes an excellent rest stop on your way to Salalah. It meets your most basic expectations without breaking the bank, and has a few surprises as well.
Duqm is an interesting place. Once just a blip on the map with nothing more notable than a reliable petrol station, and an equally reliable biryani shop. Duqm now has almost become a symbol of Oman’s hopes and dreams.
SalamAir, Oman’s only low cost carrier, is spreading their wings and broadening their horizons since their launch. It’s exciting! So what does the new schedule look like?
