Taqah Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

Taqah on the Sea

Very close to Salalah, and well worth a visit. Has new road and walkway all along the beach. The high cliffs to the east of the town offer an awesome lookout - this is where this pic is taken from.

Wadi Darbat - near Taqah

Wadi Darbat is a short drive into the mountains behind Taqah. Any season is great, this is taken just before the Khareef, so the water is low, and the vegetation is limited. It makes a very interesting hike - up through areas of caves, camels and Jebali characters!

Taqah Fort

There is a small Fort in Taqah which is open to the public.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful beach & cliffs ....and few tourists
  • Cons:No hotels, very few food possibilities.....

    Nice pictures and descriptions about Taqah: I'm not sure if I'll get here in the next couple of weeks, but it's nice to know where to head if we get to Salalah. Thanks.... w
