When is the best time to travel to Oman, and what is the best thing to do?

If you want to visit Oman, it is crucial to know the right time to travel. In addition, it is advisable to avoid high temperatures, as this country is very hot all year round.

To discover the northern area, visit Muscat and enjoy the many beaches in the region, choose the months of November to February. During these months, the climate is pleasant at 27 °C.

On the other hand, if you want a desert adventure, the ideal time to visit the Wahiba Sands or the Sharqiya Desert is between October and March, as the temperature will be warm but bearable. April is also an excellent month to visit this area as it is the low season.

Finally, if your trip includes a visit to the Wadi Bani Mountain oasis to bathe in its crystal-clear waters, the best time to make this visit is from November to April. You can enjoy the area's warm climate and spectacular scenery during this time.

What are the COVID-19 restrictions in the country?

Currently, according to the government of Oman, there are no restrictions regarding the presentation of a vaccination certificate, the provision of a COVID-19 test result, or quarantine upon arrival in the country.

However, we always recommend traveling vaccinated since it reinforces the security that the trip is safe and that there is no unforeseen pandemic.
