SURF’S UP IN OMAN

Friday - - Travel -

Bali, Hawaii and Aus­tralia per­son­ify the ul­ti­mate surf­ing hol­i­day but Oman has inched its way onto the surf turf – the UAE’s neigh­bour has a nat­u­ral groundswell from the In­dian Ocean. Dubai-based wa­ter­sports com­pany Fahren­heit Beach­sports or­gan­ises surf trips and tours in the small sea­side town of Asee­lah. Called Aloha Ara­bia, the trips are tai­lor-made to suit guests’ itin­er­ar­ies and surf­ing skills, and range in du­ra­tion from three to five days. The next trip is sched­uled from June 23-27 and in­cludes surf lessons, surf­board rental, ac­com­mo­da­tion (camp on the beach or opt for ho­tel stays), trans­port, meals, beach and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and a visit to the lo­cal tur­tle con­ser­va­tion hatch­ery. From Dh1,450 per per­son; call 04 304 8161 or email info@fahren­heit­beach­sports.com.
