Musandam Oman ( مُحَافَظَة مُسَنْدَم ) is located on the Musandam Peninsula. Unlike the rest of the country, Musandam sits north of the UAE. When the United Arab Emirates was formed in 1971, Oman kept its Madha and Musandam territories due to their strategic positions.
From Muscat, Musandam Governorate is best accessed by ferry. Otherwise, there will be four checkpoints if you decide to drive through the UAE!
