The Musandam Governorate is a governorate of Oman. It is located on the Musandam peninsula, which juts into the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow entry into the Persian Gulf, from the Arabian Peninsula. The Governorate is an exclave, separated from the rest of Oman by the United Arab Emirates. Its location gives Oman partial control, shared with Iran, of the strategic strait. In the northern section of Musandam, around Kumzar, the language is Kumzari, which is a southwestern Iranian language closely related to Larestani and Luri. The Musandam Peninsula has an area of 1800 km2 and a population of 31,425 people.Access to the peninsula was formerly difficult, with the only options being limited flights or a ten-hour drive through four immigration posts. The Shinas fast ferry service between Muscat and Musandam was launched in August 2008 to alleviate this problem and make the region more accessible. The governorate is accesible by land only from the United Arab Emirates. Mainland Musandam can be accessed by Ras Al Khaimah near Al Jeer and an exclave of Sharjah, Dibba Al Hisn. Oman Air provides an air link between the capital of the country, Muscat and the main administrative town of the governorate, Khasab.Use our online itinerary creator: Musandam Governorate and all its delights await.
