Your SeaDream Land Adventure begins with a visit to the famous Al Husn souq and stroll among the vendors. The colorful stalls are heaped with mounds of frankincense, myrrh, incense, bottles of fragrant perfume oils and a large variety of fascinating artifacts. Then you will proceed to visit Job’s Tomb - Legend proclaims this as the resting-place of Job, the Old Testament’s pious man whose faith was tested by God. The site is a place of importance for Muslims, Jews and Christians. Take in panoramic views of the Qara Mountains and Jubriah Plain, experience the legendary story of Prophet Job and his devoutness. Your adventure continues to the beach of Mughsail where the white sand touches the deep blue of the ocean and at high tide, where waves burst through the natural titanic 'Blow Holes', at the far end of the 'Rocky beach' with a cave-like entrance. We thereafter continue along the 'Hair-pin-bend' road towards the Western Border of Oman, with its breathtaking cliffs on either side, to see the historical 'Frankincense trees' growing in their natural habitat, deep down in the valleys, dotting the dry and craggy countryside. We take a short walk into the valleys to smell the 'Holy Incense' amidst the scenic view of the region. On your return journey you make a photo stop at the lagoon at Mughsail where migratory birds – occasionally flamingos – are a common sight. After this half day adventure you will return to the port and SeaDream.
