A time when Mother Nature breathes new life into the surrounding landscapes, Khareef is the name given to the monsoon season in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and Salalah in particular. Here are some must visit places during this time (later part of July to the start of September).
A perfect spot for a refreshing swim during Khareef, Ayn Gharziz features an idyllic natural pool. Easy to reach from well-placed Salalah hotels, this area is also home to waterfalls and offers beautiful backdrops in which to have a picnic too.
Another well-known picnic spot, Jebel Ittin is an enchanting destination to visit especially during Khareef. Within 25 minutes from Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara, this area also offers some wonderful views and easy access to many local restaurants.
The rainy season makes visiting this area with its picturesque spring particularly popular for friends and family. It provides plenty of opportunities for rewarding hikes and sharing BBQ meals together.
The white sandy shores of Mughsail Beach are a captivating sight during Khareef (and any other time of the year!) and it has become a popular picnic spot too. One of the highlights during this time is the chance to see the full force of the area’s blowholes with the water reaching to heights of around 20 metres.
