Marneef Cave, Salalah

#2 of 6 in Parks in Salalah
Overlooking the scenic Mughsail beach stands Marneef Cave, actually a large rocky outcrop carved in limestone by the sea, known for its picturesque coastal views and nearby blowholes. Take a stroll along the beach on your visit to the cave, have a picnic, and enjoy the sight of waves crashing on the soft sand and rocks.
