The Sultanate of Oman is located in the southeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, and its coast with a length of 2000 km is bordered by the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, with the coast being divided into two major sections. Along its long coast, Oman is dominated by the influence of the prevailing trade winds, as well as the Indian monsoons.
The beaches in the north of the country, along the Gulf of Oman, are suitable for bathing year-round. While the water temperature in winter is around 25°C, it rises to a very warm 26°C to 31°C in the summer months. Due to the high water temperatures, it stays warm all year round.
The Arabian Sea along the southern coastline of Oman also invites swimmers all year round. The climate here is primarily tropical and is generally subject to less variation in air and water temperatures. The sea temperature here oscillates between 25°C and 29°C.
