Oman

Introduction

Oman (officially known as the Sultanate of Oman), is an Arab country on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, bordered by the United Arab Emirates (northwest), Saudi Arabia (west) and Yemen (southwest). The coast is formed by the Arabian Sea on the south and east, and by the Gulf of Oman on the northeast. It is in this Gulf of Oman than diving takes place. The most famous area are the Daymaniyat Islands, which lies 15 km off the Batinah Coast and are Oman's only Marine National Nature Reserve.
