Masirah Island hotels mapMasirah Island intro. Just off the coast of Al Wusta in Central Oman, the hourglass-shaped Masirah Island is a remote desert island filled with sandy beaches, rocky coasts and shallow salt flats. This wild terrain is ornamented along the coastline with wrecked dhows and ships from the last century, perfectly preserved by the hot, salty atmosphere. One wreck, a massive British cargo ship that ran aground in 1960, is particularly impressive and found in Panamanian, while a Bedan from 1938 can be found fully intact just outside of Safaiq. The strong monsoon winds that come in the summer provide an abundance of marine life and create premium conditions for kite, wind and wave surfing. Over 300 bird species have made habitats in the island's mudflats and freshwater wetlands. Masirah Island hotels can be reached by a ferry or speedboat from the port town of Shana. Get to know the uniquely Bedouin island culture when cruising around by jeep or camel. Masirah Island is a truly serene paradise that is not to be missed.
