Points of Interest in Zighy Bay
There are no attractions within the small town of Dibba itself. The main thing to see is the unspoilt nature around the town. Hiking, multiple-day trekking tours with camping, or diving to see the amazing marine life are the ways to experience what's fascinating about the Musandam's East Coast. In the mountains, there are also big sinkholes, which can be a fascinating dive opportunity for experienced divers.

About Zighy Bay
Dibba has a large natural harbour on the East Coast of the Gulf of Oman and in previous periods of history, it was attacked and conquered by several regional and colonial powers. Today Dibba is the entry point to Eastern Musandam and rather a classic border town.
The Omani government has made a big effort to ensure coral reefs are recovering and protected. Therefore, today, travellers are able to see growing reefs and an amazing maritime wildlife. If you choose a dhow cruise, diving trip or trekking, please ensure the tour operators work according to the conservation rules.

- Dhow cruise. Several agencies operates daily dhow cruises that include snorkeling. Dive trips and overnight tours are also possible. Negotiate prices in detail.
- Deep Water Soloing (Dibba coastline). DWS is pretty popular with travellers as the cliffline is a very good terrain. Climbing up to 20 metres from the coastline is possible. Use respected guides and experienced dhow operators as backup
Most hotels run a restaurant that is open for non-staying guests as well. During the weekend most hotels offer buffets which are popular with families, package tourists and groups. The Golden Tulip and Six Senses hotels operate the only fancier restaurants. If you are looking for international cuisine or anything more than basic kebabs, you will need to dine in the Fujairah resorts and restaurants.
Tea and water are the standard choices in Dibba. Alcohol is served in licensed restaurants and hotels (e.g. Golden Tulip or Six Senses) but not in standard restaurants.
Anything more than basic staples and food is better bought in Dibba (United Arab Emirates). Most of the food is imported from the UAE or other countries. Traditionally, vegetables were grown in the area, but imported goods are cheaper today.
