It is situated about 75 km north of Muscat International Airport directly at the coastline, the transfer takes about 45-60 minutes. Musannah is a great destination for the relaxed comfort of a holiday resort right on the beach and to enjoy various sports and activities.
The open and wide beach stretches out over kilometres in both directions and invites you to extended walks in the sunset.
Kite boarding at the Millennium Resort and at Sawadi Beach
Musannah is a promontory that provides god possibilities for safe and comfortable coaching depending on the prevailing direction of the wind.
In winter, the temperatures stay around 25° C in the area. In summer, the temperatures are likely to raise up to 40° C. Most of the time, the water temperature stays over 24° C, even in winter. As the wind is usually not too strong, the area is well dedicated for kiteboarding beginners.
